Done a set today turned out pretty good. Tiller stayed good and I liked the way it shot.

I've trapped lots of critters by their limbs but I cant figure out what it means to trap a recurve limb.
I looked in the Bowyer's Glossary and can't find a definition for "Trap Recurve Limb". Can someone enlighten me please?

If I'd known that I would live this long I'd have taken better care of myself.

Royce, 'trapping' it means to shape the limb into a trapezoidal cross section. Usually that means to narrow the back of the bow so the belly is wider.
