Re: FireBow Pictorial

Never had any luck with a fire bow, but have started a couple fires with a fire saw setup. Nice graphics though, very informative!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!

Re: FireBow Pictorial

I tried to make fire with a fire bow the other day. Got smoke but no amber. It definatly takes practice. At first I used ash for the stick and maple for the base. When that didn't work I tried a piece of poplar for the board and poplar dial rod. That worked better but still no amber. I haven't given up yet.
