Yea, but the @$%$g quesiton is:  Do you have a digital camera????????  This is like reading one of Charlie Lambs "instalment stories" only the teasing is even worse....

I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.

Curtis,
I have some beaver tail that would work for the arrow pass (strike plate?)if you want it.

Sounds exotic! Yea, why not a beaver tail arrow pass. Anyone have any objections?

Why not use beaver tail? This bow's got just about everything else. I say go for it.

Thanks Cody!

 I will post some pics in the AM. I do think you will be disappointed in the pics though. I elected to go with a satin rub and no gloss. Basically, unless you are holding the bow where you can feel it and gleen light on it from different angles, you'd probably think it's just hand rubbed/polished wood. If you could hold it in the light though-Oooohhhhh man! CK

Pics never show the depth you see in person. It'd be cool if Weasel or someone could photograph both bows and the associated gear together. Heck, it could be an article in the Bowyer's Journal or something!

Yea, I was thinking about doing an article on the bow as well. My Primitive Archer arrived two days ago with a similar bow project article. Looks like PA's guys got together and did somewhat of a project like the St Judes bow. BTW, Do we have a name for the bow yet???? It would be nice to call the bow by name. CK

Hand rubbed satin is good.   Bet it’s nice.
Don’t be afraid to shoot it.
Pretty good chance it won’t break....
Unless the finish weakened the wood fibers?  :)

I finally worked up the nerve to fling a couple of arrows through her. The two arrows were 3" appart at 15 yards. She is a sweet shooter but I will need to start going to the gym if I'm going to win the bow. She is stout! Have a look! CK

 

A look at her smooth belly.
 

and a look down her back.
 

Sweet hu? I'll start the bidding at a grand Danny! CK

Cool!  Great job Curtis.  Looks nice and smooooooooth.

Got any pics of the skins from a better angle after the clear went on?  I was wondering how the color and transparency would change after the clear went on.
