    Under that ugly green paint is a beautiful chestnut brown Conolin blank and the handle is mounted on a section of one inch aluminum pipe. Yes, it's worth taking down all the way to get the experience.

    I forgot about the jerky. I'll pop a doe opening day of bow season and you can show me how to prep it.

    All it is is putting hoops on a stick with thread. How pretty you want it depends on how much time your willing to invest into the construction of the rod.
