Well, the man who gave me this bow was a master bowmaker. This was his personal bow. It has his own mark on it because he carried it himself. He
gave it to me in friendship and I guess now in my life, it's probably my most treasured possession. It is the only bow he ever made from hackberry.
In March of this year we went on a 5-day trip and over the course of 4 nights everything we owned of value and sentiment was stolen from us. I'm
talking the brass wall-switch plates off the wall, oven mitts, my dead father's guns and his monogrammed bible. EVERYTHING....except this longbow.
They didn't see my longbow hanging in a dark room we don't use. It was hanging on the wall right in front of the door, but the light doesn't work in
the room. Curiously, they did steal a hidden Winchester 30/30 from under the bed in that room, but I think they simply could not see the bow. I
think it blended into the wood on the wall...thank God.
My dear friend is gone now and I didn't learn from him, what I should have learned.
The videos provided will help me a lot. It sounds like I need to just practice, practice, practice.
