Slide of the Month Extra - Apache Springs decision


July 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

It is going to be a great day on day 5 (hopefully) as our pack will have only one lunch in it and we are heading to Apache Springs for the night and food pickup. I'm also looking forward to the sweat lodge (hopefully it is not closed because of Covid) and seeing the Teepees both which I've covered before in slides. One of the other programs at Apache Springs is 3D archery and this slide depicts a choice the archer will make. Shoot the bear and let the deer run free or shoot the deer and give the bear an easy meal. Well for me, I use to be a bear, and a good ol' bear too...

Carved from some really hard maple, I needed to keep my knife really sharp because this took some time and effort to carve. I painted it with hobby paints, lettered it with waterslide paper, and sealed it with a couple coats of poly.
