Tie Vote for August Self Bow of the Month
« on: September 04, 2007, 11:48:21 am »
Congratulations to Pappy aka Mark Baggett Clarksville ,TN
and to CowBoy aka Paul Wolfe from Springtown, TX 76082
Their  Self Bows Resulted in a Tie Vote
Pappy's Bow: http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,3150.0.html
Well finely got some pictures of the Twins yesterday finished,didn't like the tiller on the top limb of either but they both had a hump and natural reflex ,of course in the same place that I just
couldn't get out,it left a little flat spot in the limb,its bending there just looks flat to me.I
decided to settle with what I had.Thats what you get when you work with snaky wood.They
both shoot great so I am pleased.They are both 63 n-n 1st is 53@26 and the 2nd is 52@26.
Both have about 3/4 backset after first un strung and 1 1/2 after rest.Here are some pictures
Twin 1 first and then twin 2.Hope you enjoy. :)The first pictures are laied out and cut out when I started.

Have a good friend in OK that let me cut some osage off his place. Had been promising him a bow for it in return. Told him the drawn out part would be the curing - besides have been so busy at work the last few weeks and good god it's hot in TX right now.
  Anyway had a Saturday free and was able to whip one out for him - 66" n/n, 55#'s @ 28". I have a  better understanding now of what you guys mean about how snappy that sage is, this bow is much smaller all around than any of my other's and full of little knots (three of them go all the way through) and outshoots the others. Hated to give it away - but true to my word.............

Oh my favorite is one of them but both are more than worth to be BOM. Congrats to Cowboy and Pappy.

Ouuut-stannnnding. I was really having a hard time picking my favorite between the two - did a bunch of "back 'n forthing" before I finally lit on one. I for one was real pleased with the tie, though.

Put both of our winners Full Draws on Page 14 of my TBD Pages This AM. Between hunting and getting some (5) promised Turkey Wing Bone Calls out that I was behind on - I was slow getting these posted. Already had the Backed bow up earlier - before it won - LOL.
