Working on three new longbows

I am currently working on 3 new longbows, each 5 feet long (I decided I wanted to experiment with making "shorter longbows").

Two of them are hard maple and the third is oak. So far I have determined that the maple provides more lbs than the oak, but the oak is easier to work with.

I have also determined I will need to shave the maple limbs down a lot more as they are currently pulling around 60-70 lbs. That would be great if I wanted to go bear hunting, but these bows are for target practice and I want them to be in the 35 to 45 lb range.
