I like shooting recurves and longbows but every once in awhile I got to get out my favorite Osage self bow. I take it out hunting but haven't killed anything with it. I had a couple of chances at some little Does but couldn't bring myself to shoot them.

That's one of the arrows I just finished and shoots well out of the self bow. I'm good out to 20 yards but am deadly 15 yards and under. Something about hunting with a self bow and a couple of arrows in your Quiver to take you back to a different time when Archery was simple.

I still have my first one from the '60s. It has cracks around the grip so I can no longer shoot or even string it. I reigned more terror on the critters with it than Sitting Bull. :LOL: Never did shoot a deer with it. Switched to a recurve when I turned 12. Fond memories from youth with it, though. I did knock a Dove out of the shy with it. Pure luck. LOL!!
