What a beauty!  I really like that bow.


I hope I'm not the one who said 2" of set is excessive.  Maybe I was just thinking it? ::)  Ha, ha.  I am not for perpetuating the myth that less set is always better.  You can overbuild bows so they don't have any set but that's excessive mass.

That is an extremely nice bow, very well made and beautiful. I have no doubt a good shooter as well. Steve

Hey, thanks Bob  ;D The bow on the wall I'll have to post up one day, its Hickory and has seen probably a couple thousand shots.
Overbuilt and strong, she's a good meatmaker!  ;D ;D

Thanks Steve,, ,kind of you,,, I've got some old 4point purpleheart footed target arrows from along time ago,, funny how they fit this bow perfect? :D

Great Salvage!  Made yourself a good horse bow or brushy river bottom whitetail hunter.  Very nice and bookmarked for April Self Bow of the Month.  #9 already!
