Got an unsolicited opportunity to acquire a used bow from Jay this week at an "offer you can't refuse" price.  What the heck, we can all eat bologna sandwiches for Thanksgiving. And the kids don't really need any Christmas presents. 

Details on the bow - it's made of Yew.  And has a string.  And horn nocks.

For a bow that looks that good, I could eat bologna all year.

Finally got a chance to shoot a few arrows from this now yesterday after work. Not sure I would ever use it for pigs, but it looks like it would get the job done if I did. It is an extremely smooth shooting bow with no hand shock at all. Not sure it it is the 73" length, the piece of Yew, or the design of the bow, but whatever the case, Jay sure built a winner.

Mr. Clovis, how do these Yew ELB's do performance-wise, compared to an equally spec'ed ASL?

Good question. I have not had a chance to put this particular bow on the chronograph yet. My previous experience is that my selfbows (ELB, Osage flatbows, etc) all tend to be about 10-15 fps slower than a comparable weight straight limb ASL and 20 fps below my recurves. It is a relatively small sample and the ELBs tend to to be a few inches longer than the others so that likely impacts limb performance at my 26" draw.

Had a chance to take this one out to the range on Sunday. (Still no hunting on Sun in PA).  Very soft shooter with no hand shock and the arrows seem to go where they are supposed to.  Might have to say this is may be the best ELB I have owned. (Jacques - you didn't hear that. The Don Adams that is on its way to your place is just as sweet, only too heavy).

I had to laugh when I saw this picture of me drawing the bow back.  After watching my most recent experience with the Hickory ELB breaking, my dog Liedo seems to be keeping a safe distance just in case it's going to happen again.

Very nice, Clovis. That's for the follow-up info. I appreciate it. That sure is a beautiful bow and it appears to shoot as good as it looks!

I am so envious! I would love to have a range available, with 3D targets, and where I could take my dog.

I have owned many True English Longbows!!! Made by the Welschman, Alaska, John Strunk, Oregon/Washington area as well as Don Adams, all of those bows we're 65-70 pounds at my draw, everyone of them were performers!!! I don't believe in chronos, however to quiet some skeptics, checked each one of them ten shots each, then averaged them!!! They all averaged roughly 8-10 feet per second faster than the pounds I was pulling, shooting 560 grain arrows, all had 145 grain heads!
Compared to the same draw weight glssed Hill bows, using 560 grain arrows with 160 grain heads, the glass bows shot an average of 3-5 feet faster!!! So for the average shooter, average eyes couldn't appreciate the difference!!! Now if you add a metal nock point, instead of a tied nock point, the metal nock will steel 4 feet, yes 4 feet per second from the arrow!!! I once shot a bow and arrow combination in a major championship, where one of the competers, stated that my bow shot so flat at forty yards it had to shoot over two hundred feet a second!!!!
I said I doubt it!!! He then offered to pay for ten shots through the graph!!! I told him I thought the bow and arrow combination would be in the low 170's !!!!
Well in fact it shot nine shots at 173 and one shot at
174 feet per second!!!! So the lesson here is most bows average about 110 feet per second faster than
Pounds you are pulling if you have the bow/arrow/ string/brace height correct!!!
Most of you think of me as a Howard Hill shooter,
WELL the truth be told I cut my teeth on an English longbow, shot one for, well going into my 61st year!!!!
I shoot an English longbow about 25-30 percent of the time!!! It teaches me how to shoot correctly!!!
A lot can be learned from shooting self bows!!!
Enjoy you new found friend, hope she treats you very well!!!!! Yours in archery, humbly Jacques
