Mike, i was just showing your post of this bow to the wife and telling her how i thought you deserved to win this month.
when she asked why,i explained how the tiller was spot on(she agreed),the craftsmanship of the bow and the very unique choice of wood
the i seen the thread for who won,i was glad to see it was you and my vote actually counted too  ;D

i have always admired your paddle bows,but this one is  the epitome of your bow collection
very nice work sir,keep it up
i always wanted a harley,untill it became the "thing to ride"
i ride because i love to,not to be part of the crowd

Gordon....coming from You...I consider that a Big Honor...You make some really Smooth Bows....I appreciate the Compliment...

Tim...thank You for Voting for Me...I know that You have always said that You liked these Bows...so when are you going to try one?? These are Perfect Candidates for Board Bows...so they will be right up Your Alley...being wide and Slat...they need either a Board...a Decrowned Stave...or one heck of a Large Tree to get a Stave flat enough in the Back for one...I wish that these were as easy to Tiller as a Pyramid Bow...but They Are Not.... :P...they can be real Bears to bring in spot on and still hit your weight...

Don...the Tux....is out of the Question...even when I am laid to rest...it will be in either a Harley Shirt...or a Finlander Plaid Long-Sleeved Shirt...and a pair of Levi 501's.....with my Engineer Boot....or Sandals...depends on what time of the Year I Kick It..... ;D

Travis...Paul Ron....Ken....Thanks a bunch for the Compliments...I still can't believe that this Bow won.......Man....I'm going to be in a Magazine!!! Thats friggin Kewl........ ;D...

The last time I was in a Magazine...I was 8 years Old...and my Dad and 4 of His Hunting Buddies were out Hunting Rabbit with .22 Pistols...when the Beagles aroused a Sow with three weeks old Cubs...all I can remember is a bunch of Pistol Fire...and the Biggest Black Bear I have ever seen in my 8 years of Life...I think it was the first one too...... ::).... and my Dad still had on his Service Revolver...and it took 4 rounds of .38 Specials...and um teen .22 Shells to stop Her Attack....that was 1968 Field and Stream Magazine....but thats another Story......huh Wayne....... :P

  Hey, Don't know how I missed this. Congratulations, Mike. A very unique, outstanding looking bow.

Thanks Guys...I really didn't see this One coming at all...I really expected the one that I built when my Boy was Stranded on the Highway for Christmas was the One that stood a chance to win...if any...but it got left out of last Months BOM....and I am really glad it did....because with all of the Beautiful Bows last Month...mine would have nevr brought a second look...... :-[
