my hawk only weighs 17 ozs and we throw from 12` and around 18`, its not that bad. i still do a little hiking and camping and work in the yard. i just can`t lift much more that a bag of feed and i`m not able to run or climb, so i`m the guy you want to take on a bear or hog hunt with, lol! i just take things slow and easy, take a break when i feel like it. one big draw back is my ability to ride in a car for any great distances, about 200 miles a day is all i can sit for. i don`t think i`ll see new england by car again and i don`t fly anymore so the folks up north are safe for now.

are you talkin about throwin hatchets? if so,
tell me about how you went about getting one.
i have wanted one for years. a good one that is.

i got chased by a black russian boar once. it was after i gut shot him with a 45-70 in a t/c hunter. never will forget it. had the 2nd. round in my pocket with my car keys. it got tangled up in the mess. pig chased me around a loblolly.
if it wern't for a friend that pig would have gnawed on me some. i did finally shot him. my friend told me nothing was wrong with huntin pigs with a single shot pistol -- only he said i ought to carry 4 or 5 of them.

hog hunting sounds like wild adventure and one had ought to be well armed. the trick to buying a good hawk is the thinner blade it has the better it will stick, also the wood is a big factor, the harder and tighter the wood the less you will stick and the less fun it is, i prefer sycamore or cottonwood. also one thing i look for in a hawk is weight. the lighter the better for me. the below link is of ragnar`s hawks, this is where i got my last hawk the iroquois. the woodland looks like a good one also, it may require a little dressing on the edge.

here is the first rod that was placed where my left femur was supposed to be, it went from my hip to my knee, the bone is supposed to knit around this titanium rod. so 4 years ago in november they removed this one and the following april i was in arkansas up on white rock moutain when i broke it again, after riding about 150 miles flat on my back from van buren ark to tulsa i now have another rod in there, and its here to stay. besides the rod in my left femur i also have some screws and a cage in my back now.

Ouch! My brother has one of those in his lower leg. They are going to leave his in too. Poor kid, he was 15 when they put it in! I don't know your story, but he stepped out in front of a moving car...the car won...
