It's Giving Tuesday........so
« on: December 01, 2015, 10:58:00 PM »
I decided to give. I have been away for 5-6 years from Trad Gang. Before I left, I had acquired 4 'nice' bows. I have a Griffen TD longbow, a Kanati lonbow, a Black Swan Wave (longbow??) with wood handle, and a ....nope, not going to tell you - YET.  This last bow is a 60" longbow that is spec'd at 54# @ 28".  I would like to give this bow to a new home. I will even pay the shipping.  I would like to limit this giveaway to people who have only one bow or who have never shot a higher end bow. So if you'd like to enter, please reply in this thread with the bow you currently shoot and what bow you dream to shoot.  I will pick a winner on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015 at 9pm Pacific time and ship the bow to them. I will post pics of the bow then too. There is one problem with the bow that I know of. It lacks a 57 1/8" string.  The winner will have to supply that. Best wishes to all and to all a Happy Holiday season.

I've got lots of bows and not in need of another. But I would like to say, Kudos to you on your generosity. This is an extremely selfless act on your part.

You will not find this anywhere else!

Win this bow or not, I compliment you on this gesture.  Of course I would love to win this bow!

I'm a new "returning" traditional archer who bought a compound around 35 years ago and just this a couple of months ago decided to come back to my roots of traditional archery where it originally began.  

I sold the compound and now own a Hoyt ILF/ Axiom recurve to learn and practice but will be hunting with a longbow next season.

Thanks for the opportunity and thanks for sharing, no matter who the lucky winner is.

I'll throw my boonie in the ring.  I am new to trad this year and fairly new to bow hunting. I almost went with a compound and then I found tradgang and the amount of info and good folks made trad much less daunting.  Right now I am shooting a Samick sage at 45# until I get my form good enough to justify a nicer bow.  I have never shot a longbow and would love to own one. Something about that classic look just speaks to me.  If I get the bow I will eventually pass it on down the line so someone else can enjoy it.  Good shooting to whoever gives this bow a good home.

I’ll throw my name in the hat too. I think it is a very noble gesture for you to give away a bow.  I just recently returned to traditional archery.  I’m shooting the bow I had as a teenager.  An old Bear Kodiak hunter 60# at 28”   I pull 29” and I’m way over bowed!!  I just turned 60 and seemed to have lost some strength.  I’m in the market for a new bow though.  Just trying to justify the expenditure. I love every aspect of traditional archery.

Not in but will say in this day and age when people think it is OK to take advantage of others with all types of scams your generosity is a JOY to see. GOOD ON YOU!

Wow!  That's great!  I shoot a Bear Grizzly I bought in January.  It's 50# at 28", and I think I pull closer to 29".  I have also made a self-bow out of red-oak as a first attempt at bowyery, so I reckon that disqualifies me to be in the running, but I think what you're doing is awesome. Congrats to the lucky winner!

I would like to put in the name of my son-in-law Brandon Chislom.  He works 70 hours a week in grounds keeping.  Doesn't have a computer.  And, is in the delivery room right now for his first son.  He has a passion for traditional archery.  His old bow blew up on him last year.  I doubt he ever will have a high end bow. This would be a awesome gift.  I have a string for him.  Thanks for the opportunity.  Jeff Harper

As has been said, great gesture on your part. I have too many bows already and yours is a mite bit heavy anyway. I'm sure it will go to a deserving party.   :clapper:

Wow what a gesture!  Thanks for the opportunity! I shoot a 3Rivers DAS Dalaa. Two bows I've always wanted to shoot have been a Black Widow PL and a Greg Coffee Elkheart.
