The bow that got away
« on: July 14, 2018, 12:49:20 AM »
I hurt myself and thought I was done shooting trad. I sold my beloved bear recurve. Well just 4 yrs later I'm gtg and can shoot again. Now I want that kodiak mag back so bad. You ever done something similar. Btw if you know bowarkie, I will make him a hell of a deal

Oh yeah. I sold and gifted everything 8 years ago. Including some light bows I used to teach others to shoot that would be great as 'rehab' bows now. But, I had to drop bow weight enough that only one is really missed, a bow Mike Treadway made for me from a juniper log I cut in one of my hunting locations at 9,000' and humped down the mountain, and I would need to build up to it.

Hope you're fully recovered. I'm overbowed with my new bow, but shooting is improving. If anyone has 35-38#@28" (target weight is 40-42@29.5") 64"+ that you're ready to move on, Black Forest Longbow, Wes Wallace Royal, Alan Boice, Abe Penner, Big Jim, Herb Meland, ... (so many great bowyers, so little time and budget!), please drop me a PM!

Just updating on the thread...  It was too much bow for me and I sold it to a dear friend of mine on here, deadsilence...  I’ve got them connected and we shall see what happens!

So looks like a reunion is in the makes. Bowarkie and deadsilence were totally understanding and worked out a fair deal. Thanks guys. Cant wait to shoot that bow again.

I love this kind of story! When I got diagnosed with my illness, and thought I'd not ever be able to shoot again, I sold off every bit of my archery equipment. Now, 3yrs later, I am actually able to pull and shoot a lightweight bow again. I miss a lot of my old stuff! :banghead:

That's exactly why I started reducing weight on my old bows...40-38#@28 from 60# and under.  They shoot great once again!  tippit

 It's kind of a dilemma for me, too. I like to try other bows, but feel I need to sell one to buy one.

Over the years I have collected a few that I like and want to keep but I have to admit I would have liked to have kept a couple that I sold.
