man I haven't heard anyone using them for a long time. I had to think real hard and fry some brain cells to think what those were. I don't know anyone making them, I'll check my book sources, possibly track of the Wolf???

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Glad I could help you out. It is very interesting seeing and learning about the old originals... You never know what you'll see in those places.
Have a great day and welcome to the deer hunters club.
