Above: Reflexed sinew backed juniper Ishi style bow $600

This is a central California Ishi inspired bow. Made of Rocky mountain juniper sapwood and backed with 4.5 layers of elk sinew applied over 3 weeks in 3 backing sessions. The sinew is crowned in the middle of the back and tapers towards the tips making for maximum efficiency. The bow is fully finished with a application of bear grease and then 5 coats of time oil. The string is made out of natural materials(12 ply linen). The handle wrap is brain tanned deer hide. The bow measures 56" long ntn. and has a draw of 48# @ 28". The bow maintains 6" of unstrung reflex. In tests it shoots my 460 grain broadhead arrows with points 1" wide 220-225 yards.

 I tested this bow with the arrow in the photos. The arrow is poplar wood with 1/2" high wild turkey feathers 5" long. The arrow weighs 441 grains(more than 10GPP) and has a 46 pound spine. I shot 10 times through a chronograph. Took away the fastest and slowest speed and averaged the other 8 shots. That was 164.3 FPS.
