CK, nice work on the finish. Have you put it on a bow scale? Last repoprt from John S back on page 20 something was 53-54#.

No fair starting the bidding so high, give a few guys a chance to own it even its only for a few minutes till the next bid.

Tom, Only the first ones are free.  :bigsmyl:   I will get some more pics when I get the arrow pass complete. The bow now has skunk string silencers. Thought as exotic as everything else was Id place these skunk silencers on. I've been saving them for a special occasion. CK

"Tom, Only the first ones are free."

Hmmm, that's an unfair advantage in order to try and build up your bow buying piggy bank!

Terry,

I am going to have the sheath finished for the knife that was Rainman built for it by the middle of next week.  If he doesn't have pics of the Knife, I can take some and post them.  That Snakewood is PRETTY Stuff!!!!!!  I hope my hack leatherwork doesn't ugly it up too much!!  LOL!!!

Curtis,

Thanks for taking the lead in my absence.  You did great bud.  I'm back now and ready to whip this horse to the finish.  LOL

First of all to clarify the rumors that are running around.  We did have a small problem with the handle overlay.  The snakewood that was put on the back of the bow with the horn popped.  Being yew, the bow flexs a little through the handle and the snakewood decided it didn't want to bend.  After discussing this with Curtis we decided to have the bow shipped here for Jason and me to bring home.

Our plan at the moment is to make sure the horn is solid and if so to shape and refinish it with the horn but not the snakewood.  The horn will flex and be there forever.

It was not Curtis' decision to not discuss this with the general public but mine.  We had called or emailed the bowyers involved with the project to get opinions but knew the bow was solid and would be fine.  We would have had this completed by now if I hadn't been called away for Connie's mothers funeral.  

The bow will be here on Monday and will be a first priority in our shop til it's ready to ship to the winner.

If you have any concerns or questions, please direct them to me at:

wingnut@dryadbows.com

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks for posting Mike and whoever wins this bow, rest assured, will be the recipient of one extremely fine weapon.

Curtis - Thanks for catching the "problem" when you did. Better now than later.

So what happened???

I can't find the bow on the St Judes forum.  The auction is over but I just looked for it to see what it ended up going for and can't find it.

Mike, I'm sure you and Jason can "Git 'er done" in style.

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.
