I bought a whitetail hunter when I first got into archery and its been sitting in the closet since collecting dust. I read on several forums that they are a ticking time bomb waiting to explode on the archer. I decided to remove the limbs out of there pockets and plan to replace them with wooden limbs. It's gonna be like a longbow with a aluminum riser. Anyone built any bows have any advice? I've read that the best wood to use is yew or any other hard wood. I spoted some red oak at lowes the other day that I think would work great. The grain ran with the length of the board, only problem i see is the string and getting the draw weight that I want. I'll be posting pics here in a few.
