Almostpighunter’s Sinew Backed Osage Snake 


Here's what Michael says about his BOM contribution, entry and win:  Well, here's my first attempt with sinew and I have to say that I aim to be doing a lot more.

The bow is Osage Orange backed with sinew and baby Burmese Python. At the moment it is shoot off the hand, with the handle wrapped with buckskin. Shooting right around the 155-160fps marker at 55#@28". The bow is 54"T2T and 52"N2N, kinda a mollegabet hybrid with static tips with a very slight natural recurve, which is good because it did take some set (or as I have heard some other bowyers say: "It settled in a little bit"). I absolutely love the smoothness of this bow and am feeling really good about the world of sinew after this first attempt/success.

Here are some of the comments from forum members: 

SaWEEET little bow!!!  Love the skins (I have a mongo granite phase Burmese in my freezer to play with this summer)  I really love the face on view/last pic.  I need to try a shorter bow with the hybrid/thicker tips sometime soon...they are really growing on me. Well done bud!!!  Lee Slikkers

Very cool little bow. I love the side knock on the top limb too. Very nice! Pat B 

Very unique little bow!! and quick to boot.  coaster500 

Awesome bow man, it's nice to see you showing those compound shooting dudes how it's done.  Youngboyer2

real nice bend on that one, Bub

  Beautiful bow!!!  The contrast between the different materials is absolutely striking, a job well done and certainly a well deserved win... congrats.

Just realized I put my "Thank you" in the other thread... so, to everyone on this forum, thank you very much. I am so humbled, honored and inspired that my first attempt at sinew backing would be so well received. You guys are the best!
