Thanks, guys, it really means a lot.

Morgan, I just take a bunch of walnut shells and boil them till the water is real dark. After it cools I strain the water into jars and that's all there is to it.

Jawge, a couple more scrapes on a Bamboo backed osage and a string will finish up another one.

Good to see you post a bow, buddy.  It looks good, I think the stain looks great.  Really like the overlay work.

Sweet bow!

What else would a Swamp Child be dressed in but fine young cottonmouth skins?   :D  Great looking bow.
