Mudd, is there no gray tree bark in your area?  :bigsmyl:

The gray tree bark in my neck of the woods appears much darker than the gray of your bow.(which I love to look at btw)

Under the following conditions, yours should work great!

Mike that is a really nice piece of Myrtle. Here's a couple more views. Nate did a beautiful job on "White Dragon" and it has been become my favorite bow of all time!

Actually, Mudd, the limbs on my bow are not as light as they appear in the picture. I should take a better shot of it sometime, but if I do I'm afraid somebody who may know where I live will break in a steal it it's so purty....That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.  :biglaugh:

Sounds good RC! Wish I had the tools, talent, and time to build one myself but I'll just stick with Nate...I couldn't improve it if I tried! Keep the Mohawk Bud, but get the Hill you want and keep it this time!!

I'm counting the days until my "new to me" Black Bear gets here!   Not ebony, but black none the less!   I've got the 2018 XX75s by the door to give a proper welcoming!

big 5, 68", 52# @ 28" but tillered to my 29.5" (should be 55# to me), string follow limbset, heat tempered ("carmalized") boo under clear glass, paduak riser and tip overlays, locator handle under a black laced leather grip.  eta, 4 weeks and counting.

i also have a david miller ol' tom on order (eta, months and months and months away), 69", but with all the other same spex as the big 5.

all that's left is a sunset hill, and nate and i will get together on that come the summer, eh nate?  ;)  

this will complete my 'howard hill trifecta' - ekin hill, miller hill, steen hill.  who said life ain't fun .... sometimes!  :D

Rob,
Sounds beautiful ... I love the caramelized 'boo

I am sure you will love the Miller ... mine is about as sweet as it gets . Certainly no barn burner but just seems to put the arrows where I am looking with uncanny accuracy. Dave is great guy to deal with.

I am have this ongoing conversation with .. my Girlfriend , my accountant and Nate Steen ... I'll try and get that done sooner rather than later !

Look foward to pics ...

I'm waiting on ...
a Belcher Union Jack ..my 2nd but this time in a t/d
a Hill "Robin Hood" ...
and as of about five minutes ago I decided to ring Jason and Craig and get them to make me a new 66" T/d for this March's hunting trip to new Zealand... but what woods ?
Maybe Honey locust or elm .. maybe caramalized 'boo ? I'll decide in the next few hours and give 'em a call .. that is if every phone line in Australia ain't cut with all this flooding !

I'm just on 27" ... short for my 5' 10"

...but I'm left handed which means although I have a short draw length I am inherently a better shot and better looking than those right handed people who draw over 28" ......    :saywhat:

I have come to prefer the large t/d sleeve . May not feel as good but I shoot them just a tad better .
