No he sold that business to Roy Hall in Texas some time back. He renamed it Caddo Longbow . It I have seen one but not shot it. My wife was there and afraid I would need one. You can find him with a search on line.

I have a Roy Hall recurve.  I love it. I have shot many of his bows and have never picked one up that was not great.  I recently shot his Arapho model longbow. I liked it so much that I am saving money to order one. I am planning to sell some other things in order to get it.

I'm very fortunate to own 2 of Terry's bows. Both are 58" Caddos. They are very nice shooters and don't plan to be for sale.

I have a Bull Mountain recurve that Terry built for me a few years back....very nice bow.I called him last year to get one of the Hybrid bows he designed and he said the bow building was on hold for awhile.Terry is a great guy to deal with.

I was at Archers Advantage last week and they had a Terry Hughes long bow. It wasn't a Arkansas Stick and I can't remember what it was called. It is #69 @ 28" . Just a little heavy for most. The price wasn't too bad. There was a Arkansas Stick by Roy Hall on the rack also. It was #50 @ 28".The price was the same as the other long bow.

Good news....Terry showed up at our local 3d shoot in Little River county this past weekend. He brought several bows that he had built up, and set up a display table. He had several one piece longbows, as well as a takedown longbow and several takedown recurves.Terry builds some very nice bows...I'm gonna have to thin the herd and make room for one of those longbows.
