Default Hand Made Bow

Found these videos and plan on trying it for myself. He suggests Bodark (Osage Orange) or Hickory, but there are probably several species of wood that would work. We have Bodark, Pecan, and Hickory around my area, So I may try making a bow with each. (after the wood dries)

Thanks for posting. That was pretty cool.

If it weren't for my bad left rotator cup (from shooting bows) I'd be giving it a try my self. If you do try it please post the finished product.
