Osage billet RD
« on: March 13, 2018, 05:22:37 am »
My buddy Rob, "Trapper rob" gave me these billets in the 2017 supply trade. They were narrow and only allowed me about 1.125" of width. So I made the bow long. Its 68" and pulls 50# @ 28". I did a long build along on the Leatherwall site if anybody wants to see that side of it.



Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Got me! I will add it to the second post. I must have missed it the first go-round.

Very nice love your stagerd joint riser !

Thanks, those are just hickory slats with a mostly even blend of heart and sap woods. I just flipped them in opposing directions to get the checkerboard deal.
