Got this home today . It was made we think in the mid to late 50s .My buddy refinnished it ,looks like new and shoots great. 68"long 60lb@28". real smooth and fast. Tried it out at Golden arrow a little bit ago. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImageWife said she thought archery was cheaper than guns :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Me too. Got an Epic Extreme. Was a 70lb draw that killed me, took it down to 58lbs and now it's manageable. Sorry...not a very good photographer like you are.Attached File  bow__Small_.jpg   19.89KB   44 downloads

That looks sweet. There is just something about a long bow or recurve that makes them special.

Yeah!!! they don't have Wheels and gadgets to play with and you can actually hit what you're aiming at. Although, I will admit some of you stick and string guys do pretty good. :good:
