I'm in this year too. Have not done TG swap before - looking forward to it!

RH, 40-50# @ 28", prefer a glass bow.

I can make a glass or wood one-piece bow, whatever is needed.

Enjoy the hunt! - Mitch

I believe I'm in again this year. I'll take whatever kind of bow the bowyer wants to build that's right handed, around 45-50 lbs (a little below or above is fine too).

I will try to build an osage selfbow, but it's been a few years. If that fails (or if I fail making it) I'll resort to a glass bow. If my recipient has a preference, I can do either.

Thank you Kelly for heading this up again. You're a dedicated man to do this every year, and we all appreciate you! [thumbsup]

Can't make it again this year either. Wife's car has cost me $ 4500 in last couple months and have ongoing health issues to get around too.

Life throws you a curve ball every now and again.

Hope things sort out.

As for me, I don't feel confident enough yet to send someone one of mine.

Maybe 2018.

I think (hope?) I'm getting the hang of this bow making thing. Time will tell.

David, Robert, you should jump in.

The idea behind the swap is to inspire bowyers to up their game. You both have done some very nice work and should not be reticent about getting involved.

I'm in again this year. Right hand, 50-55# @27", I'll be making an all wood bow of some type. Wood or glass in return is fine.
