So you are building a bow. Wow! what a project. Regardless of the type of
bow, building a bow is a monumental task. Those who build bows usually
think nothing of the task. Making the limbs just right is an art.
I wish you the best of luck.

thanks your right until you said that I thought nothing of it. I can wait to get her finished and take her hunting.

Now I will hear from every bowyer in the country that each bow built is special
to them. To you folks yes, they are special and one of a kind.

I would not consider myself a bowyer however I have two very good friends that are and I do love working with wood there's just something about crafting something with your bare hands that appeals to me.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

I have one long bow and five recurves. Shot all of them in my younger days.

I had a riser for a Pearson compound that I wanted to make into a hunting
bow, that I could shoot out of a tree stand.

A friend of mine was experimenting with a deep recurve limb for compound bows
and I had him make me a pair.

I had a couple of single track wheels that would give me 70% letoff @ 26 1/2 inch draw.

I build all my own cables and strings for my compound bows. I ended up
with a 28 inch axle to axle bow that the limbs flexed to the center much the
same as the new ones of today do. The bow turned out to be a real good
tree stand bow.
