I talked with Altitude Sickness prior to Etar, he said his war club was going to be up there with Frank SanMarco. I told him I would take a few photos for him........

I did not make Sawmill or Etar last year, so was not quite ready for the face change that Sawmill took on as I remember it.

Looking across the pond use to be wide open field. The road into the shoot is at the top, and you use to have a couple shots out of the wooden building.

We were fortunate to run into Marc Lauver and his wife and had the chance to check out his latest build with hemp wood, a beautiful piece of work........

I asked these guys if they would be interested in trading this for my Ford Ranger......

We didn't shoot. We went up to say hi, shop, and sell. We watched a lot of shooters on the practice range. It was a busy place.

This fellow was getting a lot of attention, someone said it was a replica of Wayne Hess's great uncle....I don't know, maybe. Anyhow, he was doing a good job of dodging most of the arrows being sent his way.

And here is Frank with Altitudes war club. We talked with Frank for awhile, he told me the whole story of why he is now making his hybrid version of the longbow and no longer the one he use to build, very interesting.

Hey monkey bow what was Frank’s excuse for not building his traditional anymore every time I see him and ask him again when you’re gonna build them he puts a smile on his face ??

From: monkeyball

Frank explained to me that he is a bowhunter, and due to some health issues he needed to drop down in weight, which meant he wanted/needed to make the most efficient and high performing designed bow he could. That is when his hybrid hit the table.

His original was a flat out classy looking bow, his hybrid has more of the fast track appearance. It's keeping him in the hunt and that's what matters. Frank is a genuinely nice guy and his work is phenomenal to say the least.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

Monkeyball, Thanks for the kind words. When Mr SanMarco asked if I would send him one of my War Clubs for him to display with his bows I thought. What an honor. Of course I’ll send you one. He’s a very interesting and knowledgeable gentleman.

Jay that war club was amazing to hold, Dan , Buckdancer, what Monkeyball said as to why Frank doesn’t build his Hill style anymore is what he told me also.

What is the new location for ETAR ? I may try to go next year.

From: David Mitchell
Date: 10-Aug-22




Randy, it's at Ski Sawmill where the Sawmill shoot has been held for many years and now ETAR has moved to the same location. It isn't very far from the old Denton Hill area.
