Steve Moore (YewArcher)'s June Self Bow of the Month
« on: July 08, 2007, 09:05:52 am »
Yew Archer's (Steve Moore of Roseville, Michigan) Acumawi Replica
Readily Deserved Winning June Self Bow of the Month

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,2705.0.html
Here is a review of the specs about this bow:
Yew Heartwood sinew backed with 3 courses  Holds 1.5" of reflex just unstrung and about 2.5" rested.
lenght: 44" n to n Overall: 46" Width: 1 3/4" at mid llimb 1 9/16 at center, tips are 7/8" 45#@25:

As many of you who have known me for awile now know. I have been working towards this bow for a long time. Starting with osage to get the feel for the design and the bow I have finnaly moved to using the true wood for this design which is heart wood yew. I am very happy with the final outcome of this bow and have labeled it as my own shooter. I end up giving most of my bows away but not this one! It will be my hunting bow for next year. I am awaiting my otter pelt to make a quiver for this set up as well.
This is truly a primitive and masterfully made bow. Here is only a sample of the praise for this bow:-:
"It looks like an incredible bow to me.  The finish is beautiful.  I don't know why you would want to draw it to 28" if you can shoot it at 25."-  Justin
-Wow, that is really a cool bow, I just love it!"-Gordon
-"Yew Archer, Thats a beauty, and a great looking full draw photo as well. You should be proud, any Achumawi would love to shoot that!" -Rich
-"awesome.  it doesn't get any better than that" -Dustybaer

Congratulations for a well-deserved win. That's an extremely well-made reproduction- tiller, artwork, craftsmanship, the whole package is great. Looks like you went back in time and snatched it from the hands of an Achumawi warrior.

Progress might have been all right once but it's gone on for far too long.

You are doing some great work with your replica bows Steve.  This is what classical archery is all about.  What a cool bow!
