Obsidian Doe

did the point break? All three of the obsidian points I've killed deer with, the points broke. But all three were killed and recovered.

Beautiful bow, I like those skins on it. I shoot one with Texas Diamondback skins on it. Haven't been able to find any smaller Eastern Diamondback skins.

The raw Texas Pedernales cherts make a very sharp and strong point.

lagrangedave: I knapped the point. I started knapping in January and am addicted.

dtala: The point penetrated through the deer about 12 inches and came off of the arrow at some point, so I'm not sure if it broke. I bound the point with sinew but still lost it.

Our European ancestors were shooting deer with bows and arrows long before the Indians in North America were.
You have to be quiet when your poaching the kings deer.:bounce:
