    Just discovered this thread, interesting stuff. Does anyone else know much about "bully sticks"? When I was a young fella growing up in the Waikato dad always had a few bull penises drying out in the roof of the shed, all the shepards used to use them. Will see if hes still got one and try get some photos.

    Haha yea we used to think it was a great laugh "look at all the shepherds, wandering around with their dicks in their hands all day" they seemed pretty versatile though, strong enough to walk with, light enough to carry all day and use in the yards when sorting stock, just the right amount of flex for giving old Jack a tune up when he wouldnt "get in behind"

    I am quite pleased with this...I wanted to capitalise on the natural bend in the top of the hazel which proved to be somewhat problematical but I got there in the end...finished with a four braid round wrist band...

    just a thought EeeBees, the brass end of a shot gun cartridge would finish off the larger side of that antler, I did once on a knife I made

    @Gapped axe, it always interests me how a group of people such as forum are bound by a common interest such as hunting, yet it is only one aspect of our interests and it so neat when you see other people's crafts and artistry...
