That is outstanding!  It is good that you pointed out the bolt in mid-air.
My old eyes missed that on the first glance. The nice fletching work made
it easy to locate the bolt.

I wonder if using a waxed bow string might eke a bit more power due to
reduced friction.  My 6' long bow strings are quieter and last longer when
I make them with waxed string.

Nice project!

Feeling motivated to take out my long bow and miss some targets...
