My first hornbow
« on: September 11, 2020, 11:09:13 am »
Here are a few pictures of my first hornbow getting to brace height. 
Mulberry limbs and siyahs, oak grip.  Water buffalo horn belly and deer back sinew.

3+ months Mike.  Thanks Pat, Im very proud that it has made it even this far.  A have a few more tiller adjustments to make, but so far it is just over 60# @ 28.

Oh yeah, been shooting it a bit.  I may still sand on a couple spots to fine tune it before I cover it with birch bark. As a matter of fact, I just put some sinew wrapping at the base of the siyahs last night for some added security. Heres a picture of me shooting it, its still a couple inches short of my 28 draw.
