Done at last, done at last... St. Jude's Sunbear.

Well, it's sure taken a while and I'm glad that Chris Surtees has been a patient man. Shop problems, material problems, missed weight bows.

Such is the curse of the amateur bowyer.

Here's a few pics.

Beautiful Charlie. Hope he gets to return soon to shoot it.

Nice work Charlie.
That bow is going to be even prettier when that Osage gets to see some sun for a while.

Charlie,

Great looking bow. I know my boy will enjoy it. Hope he can put it to good use on the local hogs. Can not wait to hear from him when it arrives.

Dave,

I bid on this bow for Christopher. Now I need to have him get in touch with Charlie to understand the true meaning behind this gift from Dad. A great bow with a great bowyer and an amazing history behind it.

Chris

Right-handed and in my weight range...I gotta look this boy up! Somehow I doubt that it could ever be pried loose, though.  :notworthy:
Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
