Default A gift of bows

So not too long ago, I won a drawing for a kids bow on TG. I was really excited, because the boys (I have 5yo twins) have been shooting little fiberglass Wal-Mart bows for almost 2 years now, and they've been starting to ask when they were going to get a "real" bow like daddy's. What we recieved was a beautiful 48" longbow, black glass on the back, and a hickory belly. Had a nice little pistol grip on it too. Right away, I contacted the man that made the bow, and ordered another so the twins wouldn't have to share. I got a call about a week later, and the man said that he wasn't happy with how his hickory was behaving, and that he had made us two new matching bows, with glass on the back and belly. The only stipulation was that he had a new winner for the first bow, and I had to ship it to him. My wife is a photographer, and she did a big write up on the first bow on her blog (CLICK HERE). Well a couple of weeks ago, that special man called me up and said,"Hey, I got a lot of calls from those pictures your wife took, and I saw a real little guy on that blog, and was wondering if he'd like to model a new 36" bow I'm trying to build?" WELL HECK YEAH HE WOULD! So here's the pics with all the new bows. Mr. Chrestman's info is included on this blog... CLICK HERE

You are a very lucky man Jeremy.

Your wife is a GREAT photographer and an even better writer.

Those "little Indians" of yours are awesome boys. We met them at Paris last January.

Great story and beautiful pics. I appreciate how the boys respect the bows enough to rest the tip on their shoes and not the ground.
