Beautiful design on that bow but I think you missed the boat. I don't agree that it's impossible to repair delams but in this case I think it's too far gone. I personally wouldn't ever trust shooting it again unless you peeled back all the lams that split, sanded them all down and then tried again. Thinner laminations would definitely make it less likely to delam like that in the future.

If you want to try peeling them back, use a heat gun and slowly separate the layers. It's a long slow process and you may end up doing more damage but I've seen people do it successfully on other laminations (not bows).
