recurve

Question:

Hello, I haven’t been subscribed to this newsgroup long so I hope this question hasn’t been asked recently. I’m looking to purchase a bow but am having problems location retailers for what I have in mind.  I would like a recurve bow priced around $150 and preferably a takedown.  Over the summer I worked with some people who were very experienced in archery, both target and hunting.  I borrowed one of theirs for the larger part of the summer and decided I would really like to have one of my own.  Any suggestions?  None of my local sport shops have much, so I’m not sure what direction  I should look. Thanks in advance, CrazyAtlantaGuy

Check www.threeriversarchery.com and look at their Tomahawk line of bows.

I am looking for a new recurve for hunting and target.  I was looking at Bear (Super Kodiak) and Martin.  Are there others?  Which ones are the best?    Thanks.

Response:

If you can, come to the Traditional Bowhunters Expo in Kalamazoo Michigan the last weekend of January. Most bowyers will be represented. I’d look at the bows from Cari-Bow and Great Plains first. Then also check out bows from Assenheimer, Saxon, Great Northern and Ron LaClair. If you can make it, and need a place to crash, Holiday Inn Airport (616) 381-7070 is where we will all be staying. Tell ‘em you are with the group from "Stickbow.com"                                                 John Dickmon                             One man, one bow, several arrows

Harry: As far as commercial makers are concerned (large production rates), Black Widow makes some excellent bows, as does Grove(Grove GS300; Spitfire).  Both have web sites which will give you some good idea as to their products line. I don’t know where you are located, but through out the U S and Canada, there are many, many bowyers who make truly fine custom bows. I have a 69 inch takedown recurve by Ron Fox of Fox Archery, Molalla, OR (near Portland).  It is an outstanding example of the bowyers’ art, as far as I am concerned.  Ron has spent the majority of his time fabricating bows for hunters.  I am not a hunter and told Ron I wanted the bow for target/field work. He adapted a  hunting-specific design to meet my needs and it meets them very well. There are other established Oregon bowyers as well If you cannot locate the web site for Black Widow and/or Grove, let me know. Additionally, magazines such as ‘Traditional Bow hunting’, ‘Instinctive Archery’ and ‘The Primitive Archer’, all of which should be available through your local retail magazine outlet, carry ads for such bowyers, again, from around the U S and Canada. Hope this helps somewhat J R Miller – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – > I am looking for a new recurve for hunting and target.  I was looking at > Bear (Super Kodiak) and Martin.  Are there others?  Which ones are the > best?    Thanks.
