    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.

    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.
