I've noticed a few vids about shooting Ishi style, read what I can find. I gather it was how his people had been making them for at least a few generations. Ya I'm pretty motivated to experience making one and hunting with it. But I'm also greatly enthused about the whole body of primitive archery

I've got a piece of juniper that'll produce a couple splicable limbs, I'm all eyes and ears!

45 inches is ok for sinew bow,, could be considered full length,, a 22 inch draw can shoot with decent cast and accuracy,,
and fun to shoot as well,, (SH)

That's ok. I'm still figuring out my bowyer bench design. The vise is unsatisfying.

Iíll send you the link to how I learned to do it years ago. Just remember to triple check your limb alignment. And once you think itís perfect, check again.

I can't thank you enough Bryce, this means a lot. If not for knowledgable people like you sharing your experience, this craft would die out
