Big A's September Bow of the Month Winner
« on: October 05, 2009, 08:37:17 am »
Congratulations to Anthony Hayner of Clarksville, Tennessee
His Osage Character Bow is September Self Bow of the Month

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,14627.0.html
From Anthony:I started this summer with two bows I was going to build for myself to hunt with. That changed when Greg B went to the wood barn to help a friend find a piece of wood to build a bow. He came up with the log that Pappy named the new project. They split and cut out the rough bows and one had my name on it. Man what good friends I have.
   This is the bow I built. It is 62" tip to tip. 52# @ 28" with two layers of sinew covered with a pair of prarie rattler skins. I sealed it with truoil  and Minwax clear satin polyurethane. This was the most challenging piece of osage I have worked on. The tiller is not perfect I know but I am still learning. The grip is a piece of elk skin I traded some spliced feather work for Greg. I tried to do a little more with it then most grips I do aftervseeing Greg's. The Tips are cow horn covered with deer horn. I just want to have a good hunting season with it. Hope you like it. Big A
From Forum Members:

"BigA, I think this is the nicest bow you've made! It really turned out sweet and I know you took your time and put a lot of effort into it and it shows! A really nice finish job and great attention to detail...I especially like your grip. Fine job on the tiller as well and the bow is a very smooth shooter. Hope you get a shot at bullwinkle with it!" -GregB
"Excellent, I love the big kick at the handle..really makes use of the natural shape.Sweet" -Del the cat

Congrats Big A,
I thought your bow should as soon as I viewed it. Very cool. If I saw it in my yard I would try to beat it to death! LOL Wonderful job.
