Ishi making archery bow Strings
Ishi "The Last Wild Indian" Making a String

Ishi chewed sinew to make bow strings and to tie arrow heads to the shaft

Notice Ishi's Unique Style

Notice the arrow is on the right side of the bow.
Notice the bow is held at 45 degrees.
Notice the bowhand fingers and thumb create a shelf for the arrow.
Notice the pinch draw.

Adjusting Your String:
To adjust your brace height twist 2 turns for each 1/8"
For instance if you want to raise your brace height from 6" to 7" you must twist your string 16 turns.
Dacron strings will stretch 3 or 4 times when you first put them on. After that they won't stretch anymore.
Flemish twist strings must be turned with the twist of the string or it will unravel.
