Not one for taking pics but here are some.  I traded my Dye one piece recurve and a custom Raymond Johnson knife for the bow and a doz. arrows.   That quiver is a Howard Hill I bought in my hometown in like 67 or 68 from this dude named Cavalleti.  He worked out of his garage, and I bought the quiver which was his grandfathers and a Bear Grizzly that I still have.  Bought the bow new.  Can't tell ya how much I like this Sage.  Only shot in the garage but will give it a workout tomorrow. thanks

PS  this quiver is a little different I think than the ones sold now.  It is pretty stiff latigo leather even to this day.  But it forms to your back and the arrows don't rattle all that much, but you can only use single blade bh's cause Snuffers tend to get caught on each other.

Nice looking bow. That Osage has aged nicely. You’re going to enjoy it I am sure.

Thanks fellers.  Took it out to the lake today and did some stump shooting with it, which I have not done in years.  All I can say is that I was as good once as I ever was but not as good as I used to be.  Bow is a pleasure to handle and shoot.  Seems to have decent cast too.  Very gentle shooting qualities which is very nice.  Shoots where I'm looking out to 25 yds or so.  Brace height I have right about 6.25" but the maker told me to try 5.5".  So have some new strings being made and give those a go just to see how it acts at that b.h.  I tried one of my old Kustom Kings carbons out of it too.  This seemed to shoot the best of the arrows I had with me.  Didn't feel weird to shoot it either.  Found some rubs and such.  Pretty thick back in there where I was too.  I love that place where we have our camper and boat.  So there ya go.  Love this stuff and didn't realize how much I'd missed it over the years.

Why not just untwist the string on it, depending on how much it now twisted you should be able to lower the BH at least 1/2"- 3/4"

Can't un-twist the string that much or I would have.  Takes most of the twist out of the string when lowering it that much.  The strings I had made I have it about 5.75" and I'll start from there.  Also just received a JET Wallace longbow I have been anxious to try.  thanks
