I am a new member to the forum. I have been looking around for a while, mostly for information on string making and arrow fletching. I will be hunting with a crossbow due to a back injury that prevents me from holding a bow at full draw for more than a few seconds. I haven't been into archery for over ten years. I have found quite a bit of good information just looking around here so far, and hope to find much more as time goes on.

I am an ATV mechanic at a small polaris dealer. I used to be an ASE and Chrysler certified technician at a small chrysler, dodge and jeep dealer, but my back problems forced me to find a lighter line of work. When my wife and I went to buy her new 4 wheeler in 07 I was talking to the owner and it turned out he needed a good mechanic, and a few weeks later I had a new job. I went from getting shots to help ease the pain every 2 months to every 4 to 5 months now. I also have 2 perfectly normal kids, son 4yrs daughter 11yrs. They may not be perfect angels, but they both do what kids do best.

My son so badly wants to go hunting w/ me, but he can't even be quiet in his sleep. It will come some day.
