Default New wiggle stick

I want to say it was mid December when Deb and Arvin came up to do some hunting with me at the lease. Arvin brought me a character stave on the trip and I just am getting around to finishing it. Big thanks to Mr. Weaver for introducing me to primitive archery and for all the help along the way with my bow building. This is my 5th Osage bow to build and I feel that it is my best so far. I don't have a scale but I'm confident it's 49-50#@28"x66". I used no heat on the stave and built it as it was. The bow is pretty quick and has very little shock.

Here you go guys, I still got to do the final sanding on it and finish but it's shooting!

Nice work John. Character bows are a true challenge of ones patience to see what is inside.

John that is a beauty! I can't wait to build my first selfbow. I need to get my garage in order and a woodworking bench built so I can start. Character bows are amazing! that is a fine example, and I'm sure you are enjoying it. Arvin has taught you well it seems. I miss my self bows a lot, but I knew to get myself in gear to build my own I was going to not have any around. Otherwise I could find excuses to work on other things. Now that deer season and duck season is past it is time to get a start though.

I met Jason at brazos county last weekend at their Asa shoot, nice guy! I saw in another post you said you shot at brazos and thought maybe it was you, maybe I'll catch up with you at a shoot one day

Y'all let me know if y'all need a hand cutting osage here in burleson county.

Brandon, sounds like I'll be seeing you out at cowtown In a few weeks. I find it pretty therapeutic working a stave and think you will enjoy it. As far as you and your old weavers, you had two amazing sticks. I don't know if you are aware but I ended up with the recurve weaver and I got to shoot the one Caleb got. both were/are exceptional bows. You won't regret getting into building

Yes you will, I'm really looking forward to Cowtown. I've been trying to make it there for 3 years now, and it is finally going to work out. Caleb told me you ended up with the recurve. It and the longbow were both amazing shooters. I shot those better than anything else, and miss them a lot. I can't wait to build my own so I can get back to selfbow. The longbow was quick, but that recurve had some incredible cast. I was always very impressed by it. Arvin works some wonders with the osage, wish I was closer to get over to his place for some bow building lessons!
