Andrea, You will be alright, you will probably have more guys hiting on you than giving you hard time about what you shoot.  ;)

A friend of mine bet a compounder $10 that he could do something with his stick bow that the wheely bow couldn't do...He threw it on the ground, picked it up and shot a bulls eye on the range. The compounder got pissed and left! ;)      Pat

My favorite when they are givin me crap is to shoot another arrow and then very seriously, acting almost like something is wrong ask them...did you hear that?.. when they say no, just say...I didnt think so....Or you can show them how you can put 5 arrows in the kill zone before they get the 3rd arrow nocked.lol. Seriously tho, never had a real problem..most folks are curious about it. Have an extra stave and a couple tools on hand and you will get some converts and some good freinds....Brian

I was showing a guy from work(a compounder) my D bow and then I shot it right handed and left handed then turned it upside down
and did it all over again ;D

Thanks for all the help, guys!

Frank, I have it tillered to 14" right now...gimme a couple weeks, and it'll be mostly ready. I'll have some quillwork to do and some otter fur accoutrements for the bow that I'll likely end up doing this summer when I get home from school (with finals and whatnot, I'll probably be busy until then.) I don't know if I want to put pictures of it up until it's done!
