Well fellers she didnt blow on me! 25"@47' with the room for sanding left. All that is left to do is the snake skin backing and the tips. What I plan to do with the tips is a 2 layer. The first layer deer antler and the second layer, black cow horn. New pics are added below of course. :o :o :o :o

P.S.
To Oldbow please don't post my BOM because it isnt truly finished yet.
Thank You,
   Kamron
Sometimes, I miss these build-alongs. You might give me a heads up when its finished.  Looks like a great one for BOM, though.  - OldBow

The tips are on but that part really sucked. We had to use the tape method beside of the slant by the tips, black cow horn on the top and deer antler under it. I think the "Ole Man" and I are going to make a string as well.

It's finished. The tips come out the way I wanted. Cow horn over deer antler. The handle was a braided fishing line (black). It also has a leather arrow rest. Snake Skin is daimond rattlesnake. 45#@25" the bow is 1 1/16 wide tapering to 3/8 tips and is 55" long. Boulbes handle. I made my first stirng with silencers the colors are red black gold and a black serving. sorry for the fuzzy pics on the tips.
