Nice story and the bow looks incredible !
Once I could get my hand on such a piece - stave. 300EUR! I really had to say no. To much money for a lot of troubles (--).
Hm, but to have one of those.... (W

Pretty sweet bow! Not my cup of tea making character bows anymore but I sure do appreciate it :)
There was a super snakey stave on ebay the other week...

Yeah, this bow is definitely a prized possession. I already have a place of honor to show her off. Just thinking about where she came from, remembering the 100 year old fence post just blows my mind. I thought I had it in me then I realized it was above my pay grade. I'm very thankful to Will and Pappy for for creating this silk purse from the 100 year old sows ear.  :OK

Here is her place of honor, over the door between the sunroom and living room. My wife suggested it and I agreed with her.

I have one similar 55 inch unbacked except bullsnake skin with a handle like this..not quite as much snake as this one but the handle area is real close. I used the offset to make the bow center shot.. mine isn't a take down either.. with the handle area as such makes it is a great shooting bow.. killed a 143 6/8 8pt with it though, cane arrow and stone point.. best to date ...  gut
to take from nature the materials needed to take from nature the meat needed...they all die from natural causes osage, rivercane, stone points,...
