I have been working on this since march from a 10" diameter hickory tree using only hand tools. It's not perfect and I know where my mistakes were, but its my first one and it shoots pretty good. It's 70" nock to nock, and about 55 lbs at 28", I will know for sure when I take it down to the club to put it on the scale tomorrow. almost ready for stain. What do you guys think?
