That's definitely a keeper. Finding vine twisted sapling here in NW Indiana is next to nil. I will keep looking. The fun is in the hunt as well as the finish!

Really nice stick, Randy. Like a couple of the others said, can't fault you for wanting to keep it. In 40 something years tromping through the woods up back of the house, I've never found a twisty.
