I have been unable to get in my shop for about two weeks now between coaching my daughters softball and normal everyday stuff, this is my creation out of the lack of shop time. I call it bullwinkle because of the shape of the cross piece which in my opinion has a kinda moose feel.

I started using two rubber bands for the string but it was pud and went with a single rubber band increasing my power significantly. It is another of my one stop shop projects hope soon to be able to sink my teeth into a couple more involved projects I have waiting for me.

I love this kind of stuff. My granddaughter and I have been shooting Bow & arrows for 5 yrs, at 12 she makes her own arrows! Out shoots me regularly.
