    I'm looking for a 3 piece takedown longbow and want to know what everyone recommends. Im not looking for the best because I know that's a matter of opinion. Unfortunately where I live in central texas there aren't many places for me to go and try bows out. I haven't found many people that deal...

    Hoping to find out the maker of this bow. No writing on the riser. Limb bolts are recessed, and limb core and lams are laminated for width. Top limb being notched for sight window is unusual too. Workmanship is better than a do-it-yourself bow.

On the limb it says “Bear Take-Down Hunter“ but when I google it I cannot find one like it. The closest I can find is a 76er but they have a different riser. This is what I can...

    I put this up on the F650gs forum with no response. So, maybe it's a better fit for Tradtalk. I sold my bike 10 years ago, and now I'm picking up another one. In that time I've started slinging arrows, and I'd like to take my rig on the bike. My immediate thought is that if I put my bow...

    Is it possible to make takedown limbs from one piece of wood, or are the stresses too much? I made a riser and some limbs to tiller to about 45#, and snapped two pairs of limbs. Is this even possible, or am I just making the limbs too short for what I am asking them to do? They are 27 inches...
