Title: Osage Flatbow Feather Backed "Upland" (progressive FD pg 2)
Post by: Danzn Bar on September 14, 2018, 03:53:29 pm
Had some Quail, Phesant and Turkey feathers so I just had to back a bow with them.  Here are the bows specs.

65" ntn
50# @ 28"
2" reflex
1 1/2" wide @ fades
1/4" wide @ tips
4" handle
1 1/2" fades
About 250 shots at this point.
Starting at the tips are quail feathers followed by Phesant feathers and ending up with Turkey at the fades.
My favorite is still the turkey,  they are so aredesent in the sunlight.
Thanks for looking,
DBar

Pictures don't do this bow justice.  It's a work of art.  Bills feather work is amazing.  It sure drew some attention at the shoot today.

Thanks Guys.....Especially the comments on the bend.
I took some progressive pictures on the full draw.  Notice the reflex at the fades during brace, and how it disappears about half way through the full draw.

Bayou Ben....the finish over the feathers is a two part epoxy called "Flex Coat" used in fishing rod construction.

Thanks again,
DBar
