believe it or not folks, privot makes a fine bow, is free (in most cases) and is abundant in the south. find a piece roughly 3-4 foot long and atleast as wide as your thumb. 1 - 1.5" would be good for medium draw strength (20-40#) depending on how thin you carve it. have made more than a dozen and they work really well
and i must stress, dont forget wax wood!! excellent for bows, and can be found fairly cheap if you shop around.. i suggest the 6' waxwood staff from budk.com, for 20 bucks you can make 2 nice 3' bows, or one nice long bow... or even make a couple sets of compound bow limbs if youre fairly handy..
