Bull Snake/rawhide backed Yew
« on: July 11, 2017, 05:52:26 pm »
Welp, I took a couple year break from forums and recently wandered my way back. In that time I obviously haven't posted a bow in as many years (although I've sure built plenty).  So for my return I present my latest personal bow. It is 54" long Rawhide backed Yew, veneered with Bull Snake Skins. The tips are live-edge Pronghorn Antelope, the grip is Beaver tail. If you follow me at all, you know I shoot a short draw and this one is 60# @ 23inches. She scoots an arrow pretty quick for a short draw bow; 168fps with a 580gr arrow. The bottom limb has a little wonk to it which is pretty fun. Also, it is adorned with my turquoise Arrowhead inlay makers mark.  Thanks for welcoming me back- Ryan
