    Actually I have a place to go up in Northern Alberta one of my reps has given me a standing invite, only problem is he tells me to leave the bow at home.

    Well I guess you can do that if you wanted to.

    I am taking my father with me this fall, looking forward to the time with him as much as the hunt. In any event I will be bowhunting and he will bring a rifle.

    I like the principle of #2... directing the light down on the antlers. However, that shade isn't quite long enough to hide the switch. If you could find one that covered the switch, but not the arrow fletching you'd have a WINNER!

    Pain in the butt to find the perfect lampshade, I am not a patient shopper yet I do want the "just right" shade. The lamp is going to the garage until it is right.

    My wife told me to lose the fletchings, this is turning into a pain in the ***.

    trial the decor goes perfectly with the log and tongue and groove interior of the house. Not your typical suburban house.

    The arrow will be there but the fletching may not. Still have to find the right table or pedestal to put it on. Never again will I shoot just a euro buck.
