Nice!

These mostly have a "aristocratic Englishman indulging in the National Passtime" look to me, as opposed to "hillbilly huntin' up dinner" - but neat to see! (And the boy in that last better watch his wrist! :p )


Saw your "birch bark knife sheath" article in a magazine here in the US - VERY COOL! Congratulations Loup!

These are not meant to represent boys learning to use bows in the colonies, they are just the best 18th century pics I could come up with. Not meant to be an article, just trying to promote your blog & post.
