Title: First Elk - Self bow
Post by: Carson81 on September 29, 2016, 04:25:00 PM
2016 Backcountry Hunt. Tagged a nice little three point Bull. Taken with a 60# yew wood bow of my own making and a surewood shaft tipped with a Zwickey Eskimo. A trophy to me.

Awesome!!!!! It does not get any better than killing something with a bow that you created, whether it be a squirrel or a 6x6 bull elk. Your elk falls right into a true trophy!
Congrats!
