I promise I won't overdraw it either Bill. I've wondered the same thing Ed. I'm not sure if it should be backed or unbacked but it sure should be entered in the BOM. Really beautiful bow Bill I really like the profiles and the feathers look great to.

That backing is for decoration, not for performance or protection.  I'd say it's a selfbow of the month candidate.

Yea read the rules...I'd say it's a very good candidate for self BOM.

I'd be inclined to agree with Clint and Ed. Mostly decoration only. I just entered my Deep Roots bow last week because they were looking for enteries. If you enter this bow Bill I'll have to vote for yours instead of mine. Sure hope you enter it.

BEAUTIFUL bend, Mr Bill!!
Feathered finish, as usual, top rate.
Thanks so much for sharing with us. Hope to see it up close in 5 months!

Very Nice!  As I was reading this I was thinking to myself that I would be skeered of heat treating before filling or sealing the hole edges as I'm always developing checks if I don't use tung oil on the wood before I heat treat or try to bend wood with heat.

That's a fine looking bow, well done as usual!

I have a roughed out hackberry on the caul right now.  I roughed it out and clamped it about 2 months ago..
