crookity osage recurve and blackrat skin
« on: July 27, 2017, 05:09:47 pm »
this is a osage recurve with blackrat skins i have been working on off and on for a while. 68" ttt and about 40# @ 30". alignment gave me fits right till the end,
 longhorn tips that i gave a matte finish instead of high shine. double rest and i burned in some decoration on the leather as well.
 shoots super smooth and can shoot it all day. I am giving it to a friend of mine that had a heart attack this winter till he builds up his strength,
 then when he can shoot a heavier bow i told him I will make him a heavier bow or he can just keep this one. hope y'all like it

Nice bow Bubby, hope you told your buddy you where making him a sweet bow. Wouldn't want to shock his ticker surprising him with that beauty. Hope he gets all healed up and healthy.
