Thought I'd share some pictures of my new custom self bow. The bow is made out of vine maple. It is 64" long, and pulls 52#@28". The tips are bison horn, the handle wrap is leather, the string is fast flight, and the finish is tru oil. The bow was made by Weylin Olive of Swiftwood Bows. I am very happy with this bow, and it really is a work of art.

That is definitely a gorgeous bow.....is that for looking or for shootin? If you are shooting it, how does it shoot and at what ranges?
Thank you. This bow is definitely for shooting, and I plan to hunt with it. It is a very good shooter, I've been shooting out to 30 yards with it so far. I've been really impressed with it.

Great looking bow. You could hunt bear with that and if you wound him and he charges you just spear him. :biggrin:
Lol I'll keep that in mind.
