The Stick Makers Thread

Recommended Posts

The reason tups (rams) horns are so hard to get hold of the swaley men (folk the farm Swale sheep) get a better price at the mart (auction) for a tup with a decent set of horns the reason they are cut from the tups is because they grow into the tups face and create sores and can also grow over the eyes.

 

Hope this helps someone!

Yes, do it the same way with a camping stove, but notice how he keeps turning it and moving it, so the heat is not in the same place which may burn the bark, on whatever woods your using.
