Ayup all.

Its been a while since I posted some pics of trips so thought I would just chuck them all in one. Like most time in the woods has been a rare occurrence over the past couple of years. Anyways enough babble and onto the pics.

This was last weekend. I dug out an old bow that was used as a test bed for several types of finish and design. What worked was then put into 3 commissioned bows and this poor thing left sat in a corner. Strung her up with an old tillering string, no serving rough n ready and she shot really well. Pulls about 45@27 and just starts to bend in the handle for the last couple inch. If you turn up the volume you can hear the autumn wind in the woods as well as that satisfying thump. ;)
Also some axe lobbing :) My first try at this but quickly found its just like knife throwing.

All of those look great. I think I like the idea of saving a few trips to make a collage; it gives a sense of looking back over the months. That bow is beautiful. Have you ever made a recurve?

Thanks. That bow has a slight recurve at the tips, static. I have made quite a few reflexed bows but too much reflex is hard to keep in a self bow which all of mine are. However been a long time since I have had the time to make a bow :( Hoping to change that soon, especially now as I have some more cherry to play with.
