GregB's Self Bow is June Self Bow of the Month
« on: July 05, 2009, 01:17:25 pm »
Congratulations to Greg Bagwell of Clarksville, Tennessee
The Bow He Made for Katie is June Self Bow of the Month

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,13584.0.html
From GregB:
Katie and her dad came to the Tn. Classic this year and camped. Katie really enjoyed herself and was a real trooper never complaining about the rain and the mud, but instead like the majority of others that came to the Classic...she enjoyed meeting people and seeing everything that was going on. I work with Katies dad and have known Katie her entire life, she has always been a very sweet person! I decided I wanted to make a bow for her.

It's a 56" osage 25#@20". It had some character to it with some dips and dives and knots, etc. I put buffalo horn tips on it and I'm proud of how the bow turned out. I hope everyone likes it...

This is really a very special surprise! I wanted this bow to turn out nice for Katie because of the sweet person that she is. I really didn't think that the bow would recieve this honor and recognition. There were a lot of great bows entered for June, and either of many of them were deserving to win. I really appreciate it, and all the nice comments made. There are a lot of fine folks within the PA family!  ;)
