Well it ain't fancy but I saw ya'lls PVC posts and thought now that'd be a challenge so off to Home Depot I went Friday, got me a bow string from local bow shop got my Muzzy Extreme mounted to her and me, Matt and Dan Dan hit the water Friday night. I only got 2 with it but man it was fun trying LOL. Shot a total of 32 I think it was for the night. I made it 5ft with a 58 inch string and I think it was a little weak because I hit a couple fish I think that it didn't penetrate. I got up Saturday piddling with it making the twisting the string shorter and actually broke the bow because of the hole I drilled for the reel. SO........I made another attached the reel with clamps to the bow with out drilling any holes shortened the string to 55 inches and I hope to try her out after work one day this week. Here's a pic of it and some of the fish we got Friday. Now everybody is gonna make one. LOL TEAM SHANK'EM and SPANK'EM may be renamed to TEAM PVC!!

Guy here in town makes his for deer hunting. He takes a 1 inch pipe and puts a 3/4 down in it then a 1/2 in it. He sprays em with WD 40 so they go in easier. All schedule 40 pvc. Ive not pulled one back but they say they are very stout. He's a good size boy. Said its almost 80lb pull. I just need em to shank a fish at 15 yards not a deer's shoulder at 30 LOL.
