Title: Self Bow Winner for August
Post by: OldBow on September 08, 2008, 10:20:13 am
Congratulations to Paul Wolfe (cowboy) of Springtown, Texas
His Excellent Osage R/D Recurve Hunting Bow
is August Self Bow of the Month

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,8685.0.html
From Paul:Here's my latest osage r/d selfbow. Started out with a typical bodark stave in February this year - amazing what a little heat and steam will do for ya . She's 58" n/n and 60#'s @ 28" shoots sweet! Have been flinging those funny lookin arra's at misc birds and jackrabbit's with it last coupla days - no hit's .
 Finished off on the back with RyanO's crumpled up plastic sack dye dob job - I'm very happy with those results and will do it again, thanks Ryan. Did a little laminatin on the tips with diff colored woods I had laying around, Strunk style handle wrap, and eight coats true oil. Here she is.....
From the Forum:-"That's beautiful Paul!  The full draw is perfect.  I just love the looks of those curves.  From the looks of the stave, you earned that one." -  Saw Filer
"Danged Nice Bow Paul....you don't pump them out like Some do....but when they Come....they are worth waiting for!!! Nice Full Draw....I love it....and you don't have to worry about String Slap with that Brace Height ....do you!!!!" - El Destructo
"Dang It Son!, that baby looks sweet as a cow chewing sugar cane.  When you get through slinging arrows and waring that thing out with dove, you can send it to me." - mullet
