45 grains in carved whitetail antler. Color is from a dye made from Liripoe Berries (aka, Monkey Grass).

Nice! I'll have to give that a try myself, though I doubt if it will be as good as yours.

Winter Hawk, if I can do it, anybody can. The carving isn't difficult and neither is the dye job. You'll do fine...

What do you mix the monkey grass berries with ? Do you cook them of let them set? I have a bunch of them at the house and thought about using them for staining of decorating wood arrows. I use polk berries a lot with alcohol.
