I was just about to ask why of all the trees you could plant you would choose Osage orange? Makes sense now. Just think, when you are 78 and can't leave the front porch whittling that bow will keep ya busy.

We have tons of mature mock orange trees there. You can buy me lunch.

That's a heck of a better deal Kevin!!! Then you can get the GPS coordinates and go do some scouting.....hahaha

That's because none of the bowyers survived long enough for the Osage orange trees to mature?

Seriously, I love history and the fruit got me interested in the tree and the tree got me interested in the Osage indian tribe....who made their bows from the trees extremely hard wood. - Heres a couple of the fellows now and I see one of them has discovered that pistols work better than bows!
