Hi I'm very new to making bows and having fun, I'm lucky to be getting a lot of help from a friend, I would like to be able to go into the woods and come out with a bow, :lol: I have a lot of questions and looking forward to talking with you all. Thanks for having me

Welcome to the site, Seven. There are a lot of people here that I'm sure can help you with your needs.
We used to have a Hatchet Bow contest in Missouri every year at Mojam. You brought a stave or stick of wood, Hatchet and some string. Some entered the contest and had to build it there that weekend and they would be judged on Saturday by a group of bowyer/hunters for making a bow that could sustain life in the woods. It can be done, just have to pick out some good wood that would make a reasonable bow while green.
