This is my latest finished bow. The wood is Osage and it has deer bone overlays on the tips. I do not know the exact poundage. I don't have an accurate way to measure it, but I do know it is probably over fifty pounds judging by other bows I have. It is a self bow. This is where the back of the bow (the side that faces away from you when you hold it) is all one growth ring. This is my favorite type of bow.
