dittybopper: Plus, I made the thing myself.


Really? The head looks like Obsidian. Am I right? Nice work.

uttertosh: MikeSass: I have actually had deer follow 10-15 feet behind me through the woods (public land!) during hunting season

You're either lying, or really, really fuc7king stupid.


I have also had the same thing happen, and when someone took a shot at the following deer, I ate dirt, fast...
Deer do not run in fear from scent, and their curiosity will make them check it out. But most of the time they ignore human scent if it is common in their area. That is one reason I frequently walk in my hunting area, and have stopped hunting public land...

Yep.  It's obsidian.  And it's not all that great, I'm still just learning.  It's just that it isn't a hard skill to learn the basics of.  Here are my first few attempts at it:

i56.tinypic.com

Chronological order is clockwise from top-left, which is the first point I ever made (from a beer bottle).  The bottom two points were supposed to be a knife blade like Oetzi had, but out of obsidian.  Unfortunately I cracked it, so I turned it into a spear point and an arrow point.

This is the first head I was truly proud of making:

i56.tinypic.com

It's made out of actual flint, and I dulled the edges and carry it in my pocket as a sort-of good luck token.

You screw up a lot when learning, but it's not that hard, and when I went to Fort Ticonderoga a while back and looked at the arrowheads there, I was all "Hey, I can do better than *THAT*!".

If you are interested, I suggest getting a scrap of leather or good, thick leather work gloves, making an Ishi stick, and finding a good, fist-size hammer stone.  A baton made out of antler or very hard wood is nice too, but not necessary when you are starting out.

Erm... I'm not a scientist, but ozone in the lower atmosphere is a greenhouse gas.  Yeah, let's make more of it, so we can de-scent stuff for housewives!.

/no, you are quite obviously not a Scientologist. In fact your lack of sciency backgroundiness is utterly glaring.
