Kenny M. I'm going to make it down to your place one day to pick up supplies for another bow. Haven't decided what style yet. Hope to pick your brain some, I need all the help I can get.

Bvas, shoots pretty good. Not as good as my Pronghorn but not to shabby. I think Herbs got a few bows on me though. Lol

It looks really good.
The high spot on the arrow shelf should be in line with the deep part of the grip.

You're lying to us. That can't possibly be your first bow. You had to pick up those skills somewhere.

Well done! Certainly much nicer than my first one.
