Title: Need local Oregan Help
Post by: Clinglish on December 11, 2012, 10:50:00 PM
Hi all I am searching for any bows built by Ron Fox prior to Ron King taking over the business. In particular I'm searching for a "Raider".
Its a 3 piece recurve similar in lines as the High Sierra but made from action wood that was popular at the time.
Here is a pic that I lifted from an old catalogue I have.

Some one must have seen one of these bows or may even know where one is , any info is helpful and appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Clint

Ron Fox lived right here in Sandy before moving to northeast Oregon and eventually selling the business to Ron King.  I've never seen a Raider for sale anywhere ... have you contacted Fox Archery to see if anybody they know might have a Raider sitting around collecting dust?

Yeah mate , I have bugged Ron King at length, he has helped locate and secured 2 rare bows for me already but he didn't ever know of a raider .
