You bet Bob. I just put up a "short" on YouTube and thought of you. I used my "instincts." ;-).

You tried so hard today, but no takers. Have a great weekend.

Thanks Jimmy,

Most osage bows are made short. It will be interesting to see how a long one looks and performs. - lbg

The bow looks great. Thanks for sharing... I miss spending late nights working on bows with Gary at Mojam. He changed how most of us built our bows for sure. Looking forward to seeing a picture of your 2023 deer.

Thanks guys. It's not an Arvin bow, but it's get it done ;-). Hope you are well. Just sprayed the 6th coat of Hellman's Spar Urethane on it and cap dipped a dozen cedar shafts that will go with it.
