    Or you could use the iron from the wagon wheel rim of a hapless settler.

    Me, I'd buy broadheads.  You have to temper hand made steel, which isn't difficult (I've been told) but beyond my ability.

    I’m surrounded by hapless settlers.  No wagons....  can you make broadheads out of imported European SUV wheels?

    Didn’t know that.  This will require investigation...

    Just so we're all on the same page historically...a breechcloth is worn over a loin cloth

    Loin cloth...primitive skivies...
    Breechcloth...An apron of sorts, usually decorated with bead or quill work, with a hangy-down front and rear...

    I haven't seen a recent picture of you but please tell me you look like Tonya Roberts in Sheena.
    That way when you go full native it might not be so bad. 😍

    Loin cloth is preferable....as it provides some protection for the danglin' berries and such.

    Breech cloth is completely optional...

    For those interested in Primitive/Traditional archery, I highly recommend "The Traditional Bowyer's Bible" Vols 1-3.  I've got a chapter in that book in Vol 2, dealing with arrows.

    Just checked it out on eBay and watching a few auctions.  There’s a volume 4 too?

    There might be, but I haven't read it.  Jim Hamm was the editor of that and a couple of volumes on Native American bows and quivers.  Unfortunately, he passed away a couple of months ago.  Tim Baker's chapters are worth the cost and more so.
