BOWS
All the bows that I make are from the finest woods available including Osage Orange ( Bois d' Arc ) , Hickory,
Oak and other acceptable bow woods depending on availability. I use multiple things for bow backing
including, Bamboo, Hickory, Deer and Elk Sinew and Snakeskin when requested.

You have the option to purchase a bow "Unfinished", "Finished", with or without a leather handle and arrow
rest. All bows come "Unfinished" which has two coats of finish, hand applied.

A "Finished" Bow may be purchased for an additional fee. We will hand coat to make a total of 10 coats, apply
arrow rest and leather handle.

When you order a bow you must include the draw length and poundage. If you do not know your draw length,
place a yard stick in the center of your chest and reach out with both your hands, fingers extended. The
longest you can reach out is what is normally considered your draw length.

The average draws length for men is usually 28", where as women usually require a 27" draw length. The
average bow poundage for men is between 40 &45 lbs. A woman's average bow poundage is between 30 &
35 lbs.

SPECIAL NOTE: All bows come with an artificial sinew string and stringing instructions. Commercially built
strings are available at an additional charge.

All bows come with a thirty day replacement price warranty. If the bow breaks for any reason, the bow will be
replaced for a small fee. If this happens, we will need the handle section and a small fee for the replacement
plus $15.00 for shipping. We also require a current mailing address and phone number to return send your
bow to you. Your bow will be replaced with the same poundage and draw length.

Any questions you may have I will be glad to answer.
