6 years is really long. I once made a longbow out of a yew stave that has been seasoned for 4 years, thats twice as long usual. This bow had less set then my other yew bows. I think that the seasoning time makes a big difference. Does this also apply to pacific yew? I've only made yew bows out of european yew.

That's a beauty. I recently made an ELB that turned out just the way I wanted and I was amazed at how well it shot. Since then I've been kinda obsessed with them. This one looks very nice.  :OK

Another nice one as usual, Weylin. I really like the tips, no problem telling which is the top one.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Clean and BEAUTIFUL!  Nice bow! I really like the coloration in the horn.  Tiller looks great too! Great work Weylin!  As usual.
