Nice pile stacking up at TO. Be taking another load to the Barn before long. Got a old stave that did not make the grade. Pappy had sawed it in half but for some reason saved it. I put a finger joint in it and it made a heck of a nice 57" selfbow. Put tips on yesterday. Then got a string on it. Looking to get it to 30@24" to start. First brace looked really really good, have not weigh it but it looks like its half way to that weight already.

Get a pic in here most Tic.

Yep, got the Humpy Bumpys for sure. BL handle and the tips came out a 1930's set of drawers and are old growth walnut, 57" ntn.

Make some boy or girl a sweet shooting HH bow.

Yes. I think you saw me shoot that 1950's taper flight arrow cut to 24" long. I drew bow about 23" split finger and put it right on the standing bears nose at 35yds. Was exactly what arrow hit. Blows me a away that a bow 24lbs@25" can do that!

Some kid going to make a run at youth IBO 20121 with that thing.

Raining like a banshee this morning. No coyote squirrel hunting today.

I did get some beaver tail on this little Bownado last evening. All ready to shoot. Need to make a set of 26" youth arrows with 70grn points.

Ready for new young bowhunter.

Thank You Mr. Eric

Well bow is complete. Figgered we lost a good friend and one hella great bow-hunter right before Christmas here in Clarksville. So, I thought I would make a bow and maybe get a youngster interested enough to shoot and make a new bow-hunter possibly. Time will tell.

That turned out really sweet. Great looking bow Hedge. Whomever gets Bownado is one lucky kid. Like that beaver tail arrow pass. Very durable stuff.

Bow I call   "Half a Holler"

It had a big splinter lift at the Howard Hill shoot 2020. I was able to glue in down and thread wrap it in July while at shoot but finally found a lone billet for a new limb.

Cut it , then put a mortise and tenon type joint in it to save this old bow. It won a lot of 3D's and one or two Arvin shootdowns as well. 69" 41lbs it was. Hope to have "Half a Holler" back in the green again soon.

All back together now. Just got to rawhide wrap and put a grip back on it.
