Ohio Self-Bow Doe

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

This nice doe was taken October 22nd, 2004 near Bremen, Ohio with a homemade self-bow that was constructed from a pignut hickory that I cut down, split, quartered and dried. The arrow was made from a piece of ash and was fletched with turkey feathers from a turkey that I had harvested. The point is an original Indian flint head that I found a couple of years ago. The doe was taken at 10 yards on the ground. I’ve taken my share of big trophy bucks over the years but she now ranks at the top of my list.

For those interested in making a self-bow I have a bow building tutorial on my website.
