Sweet short bow! With the recurves and the stiff handle, making that bow work definitely requires a lot of skill!

I love that shape, my favorite design actually. Just an fyi, that design does not have to have sinew, especially at your draw length.

Nice bow.
Did the Native Americans think about all this that much or just do it?
