Arrow Dynamics: The Art of Building Wooden Arrows Guest Speaker: Dennis Muirhead, AWF Board Member
Join us for a talk from a hands-on practitioner of the art of fashioning arrows out of wood. Dennis Muirhead, AWF Board member and sportsman, started shooting the bow in 1949 and has competed in National Field Archery tournaments, indoors leagues, 3D shoots, and target archery tournaments. He has been building arrows, strings, and bows for many years, and his talk will center on wooden arrow construction based on the type of bow to be used and whether the arrows will be utilized for hunting or for target shooting.
He has hunted game animals with the bow in Michigan, New York, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, and Arizona. He has taken white tailed deer, mule deer, antelope, elk, black bear, javelina, rabbits, carp, and grouse.
A mechanical engineer, Dennis earned a BSME from Michigan State University, MSME from the University of Michigan, and is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the state of New Mexico. In addition to hunting, he also enjoys two weeks in Alaska every year fishing for salmon.
