A hunting buddy of mine's son makes custom bows of all kinds, the guy is a real craftsman.
What about a long bow made from ash wood? I thought that the native Americans used ash for bow making, but around here, the ash trees are being wiped
out by the emerald ash borer beetle, an invasive species to Michigan. I used to prefer ash when making a walking stick, but judging by all the
infected trees around here, I will be leaving the young ash trees alone and sadly using the diseased trees as firewood.
