The pilot reported carrying out a normal approach to runway 34 in light and variable wind conditions. The aircraft bounced on first touchdown and then landed heavily on the nosewheel. Several more bounces occurred before the aircraft came to rest. The pilot taxiied the aircraft back to the parking area where he found that the propeller blades had been bent. After the initial touchdown the pilot had attempted to correct the bounced landing by pushing the control column forward.
