    dont know if there are any on here, but hit up PrimitiveArcher (google it) and you will probably find a few of em.

    There only appears to be a handful of bow builders here at BCUSA (at least that post about it). The forums for bow buildersmthat I know of are: tradgang, paleoplanet, leatherwall ( bowsite), and primative archer. There may be others.

    Also, a guy by the name of George Tsoulakis has a webpage giving good details about building selfbows.

    On PA go to the campfire subforum and look for a sticky on "beginners info", lots of referenced links there.

    Paleoplanet has a reference section for bow builders as well.

    I highly recommend the Traditional bowyers bible, vols 1 and 4 if you can't afford the whole set.

    that's cause an internet forum can only contain so much awesome, what with all the other cool stuff on here, having a whole bunch of bowyers too would cause the servers to explode!

    I agree And the debates about batoning a knife and blade length are enough. Imagine if the debates got into Perry Reflexing, circular vs elliptical tiller, nock size, etc.

    true that. I quit visiting a couple of the forums listed above due to the drama, there is only so much "that bow is too light/heavy, that bows tiller is blah/blah, that bow isn't trad enough" that a person can take. Who the crap cares, if it shoots pointy sticks at things then it's good by me - might not be what I prefer but if folks like it enough to keep shooting and promoting flingers of pointy sticks then GREAT!
