You can look up last year’s sign up thread for the full rules, but nominally ship by June.

Good to see some communication on here finally. I've been away for awhile and finally had a chance to get back on. I halfway figured it was just over. Thanks to you all who is stepping up to fill the voids.

Kelly is still running this one to ground and I don't want to steal his thunder here, but with the 2018 signup going on I don't want the 2017 swap to be forgotten until it's truly wrapped up.

Ink, my understanding is that your replacement bowyer should be shipping in about 2 weeks. And then the long, tense wait to get through Turkish customs I guess.

[thumbsup] Good to hear.


Roy stepped up and is building me one of his famous trilams. He said I had to wait a few months though! [Eek!] I said it would be worth the wait and it would give me time to build him one of my not so famous glass longbows. [Big Grin]

Looks like all is going to work out for 2017 unless I am missing someone.

Enjoy the hunt! - Mitch

Stinks that you have to wait so long, but it's awesome that Roy stepped in. I'd love to have one of his trilams. I suppose if you have to wait, he's definitely one worth waiting for!

I got my swap bow from Bert today! It's a beauty for sure. He might have to give some details, but I think it's birch (may be hickory) and lovely! I hope the picture links work. It's my first time trying to post with imgur.

Thanks so much for stepping in to fill the gap Bert! Hopefully tomorrow won't be so cold and I can shoot it some.

Hello gang,
Yes Roy it is a Yew bow, spliced from an almost dead branch that was cut from a tree in Oregon during one of the NALS shoots.
The top of the limb had a lot of little pin knots in it which makes it look kinda cool.
Nothing real fancy but it shoots a pretty nice arrow and hope Joe can put some meat on the table with it.
Cute little helpers by the way [clapper]
Enjoy Joe.
Regards.
Bert

I sorta figured it was a yew bow. I made one a few years ago and love it. My stave also came from Oregon. Guy by the name of Keenan Howard sent it to me. I would love to get ahold of another yew stave..

Thanks for stepping up, Bert. ^5
