Good job, what an accomplishment. The stone point and self bow are icing on the cake.

Bill, I did make the bow. It is water seasoned Osage that turned olive green. It is a takedown with flipped tips. The arrow was cedar shaft with water buffalo self nock insert. The point is a head I knapped from Pedernales flint. Thanks everyone, Tommy
