    I've made several over the years, all were made hedge except for two that I made from ash and they were the best two shooting self bows I've shot. Only problem is that they don't last, both exploded/cracked after about 5 years.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    Rick Meyers in Ponca City has made a few. He came out and cut a few hedge trees for the bows and cedars for his arrows. He's pretty good natural shooter
