    I got home last night and tried out a 6 strand gut string. The strings didn't shrink as much as I thought they would, probably because the fat kept the strands from gluing together. It seemed OK. This morning I restrung it and it broke. I tried the 7 strand and it broke. I even broke the 8 strand string. So, I guess I could try again with gut and scrape the fat this time. Or get some squirrel hides since squirrel season is open. Or get some groundhog hides..... But the Cornstalk shoot is next weekend!smile
