Great Story, Evan!  Congratulations on a fine buck during rifle season from the ground!  That's quite an accomplishment.

Thanks guys.  Honestly, it was pure dumb luck.  That said, it was also an affirmation of the swing-draw method.  Muscle memory did all of the work, which is what I love most about ASL’s. You get out of them what you put into them.

I love this thread and am looking for some advice about wood combinations for a Northern Mist Classic bow. First let me say that I prefer earth tone colors with darker colored risers and lighter colored limbs. It will have a dark brown leather grip. I also prefer seeing the wood on both sides of the limbs as opposed to colored glass. Okay go....

For a dark brown riser to match a dark brown leather grip, you may like cocobolo.

Thank you and Amen to that.  My wife (who hails from upstate NY), has been very supportive.

I was thinking about a dark Bubinga riser and maybe some Light amber colored limb veneers over bamboo cores. Any other thoughts on lighter veneers that aren’t too “busy”?

A dark riser looks really nice on my HHA Cheetah. I know these limbs may be a bit darker and busier than you want, but it does look nice. Also, yew makes a really nice limb. It is neither really dark nor light, more like a medium Butterscotch color. Let us see what you finally choose.

Great thread, some beautiful bows here.

So what makes a longbow a HH style bow? I have a Mahaska longbow, mild R/D, with a locator grip. Is that considered a Hill style?

Yew or cherry limbs tend to look great with darker risers (cocobolo, ebony, ...).
I really like osage, but it take some time in the sun to mellow out a bit.

No Ursus Nil , it is not a Hill Style bow. A Hill Style bow has no R&D. Limbs are either straight, backset or string follow. Most forgiving style longbow out there. IMHO. They are super quiet and are designed to cast heavy hunting arrows

I was hoping you'd say that! Can't have a vacancy in my bow line up, so.....

Tradcat,  I love the look of tempered Tempered Bamboo as an outer lam under clear glass. My Sunset Hill is a work of art. It has a Myrtle riser and brown suede grip. Smooooth and Quiet too!

Mines a bit different.  It has a stacked Bamboo build up then goes to Myrtle.
