Help Needed ID'ing 30+ Vintage Long Bows
« on: December 19, 2017, 02:20:00 PM »
Can anyone help identify some of these long bows?

These were part of my late father's archery collection. I am working on cataloging and labeling everything for my family.

I need help with the first 30 or so bows, starting from the left. I know what everything is from the first bow with a Fur String Silencer on to the right.

Any help would be appreciated. I'll try to get more detailed pictures of the individual bows soon.

Austin..Nice bunch of bow you have there..I'm a collector of Kibbe long bows & Barns long bows..The Kibbe bows would have a stamp by the grip(KIBBE)The Barns bows I believe he signed them Barns..Maybe Willis Barns..It looks like you have bows similar to the Kibbe & Barns..do any of them have these names on them...
