BLADE BROTHERS

BONES FROM HUNT BECOME SHARP-EDGED TOOLS

Posted: September 5, 2013 at 6 a.m.

othing goes to waste when brothers Levi Brown, 16, left, and Clayton Brown, 14, of Pea Ridge get a deer on family hunting trips. The two makes knives from the bones and tan the deer's hide. They also help process the venison.

The outdoors mantra “leave no trace” applies to the world of hunting when brothers Levi and Clayton Brown step into the woods during deer season.

Clayton, left, and Levi, show Saturday Aug. 31 2013 how deer hair is removed from a hide with a tool fashioned from a lawn mower blade.
