Look like fine bows. Have you backed the ironwood? Or is it the bark still on?

You sure are a busy guy Andrew :)
They definitely have the primitive look, real nice.

Beautiful braced profiles!  Love to see full-draw images.

Want to crank any of these babies back to full draw so we can look at them for April bow of the month?

Nice looking bows, don't think that's the bark on the first two...maybe moss or something similar?

Beautiful country background in the third picture! ;)

Definitely some nice looking bows.  I would be curious to know what is on the back and handle of the first two. It looks a lot like pitch or something of that nature to me.  Lets crank them  bad boys back.  The first two look like they could be 90#.  Justin
