KBH there in Gorst used to have a trad shoot, was lots of fun with moving targets, even an underwater carp. Not sure if they still do it.

I'm new to making my own bows, I've never used pacific yew wood. How wide should the tree be that I cut my staves from?

From: osage

Much smaller than 8" diameter or so would have a bit more crown than I like. A 12" diameter Yew would likely be over 150 years old, so carefully evaluation for straightness, before cutting, cant be stressed enough. Yew was once endangered due to it being used to extract Taxol, a cancer treatment drug which has since been synthesized. Also, I have heard that the berries are poisonous, so don't eat 'em.
