this guy field dressed a deer that my wife shot, hiked back to my vehicle for my deer cart and pulled it out for her while I was hunting.  Hunters like that are always candidates.  I offered him my 54@26 yew glass bow several years ago and he turned me down, then he turns around and buys his own.  I whipped up a really nice dozen arrows for him, six with field points and six with Ribtec 145s that I go for a very good price from Biathalonman.

This morning a hairy woodpecker is trying to knock down my cottonwood tree.  The robins finally showed themselves, the sun is shining, the flood waters are receding, but my seed crate target is still frozen solid.  So no shooting in my backyard.  No wait, the deer targets are free.

Pavan, I got the Sunset back today.  All I can say is WOW!!!  Nate knocked it out of the park with this one.  Smooth, fast and accurate. He reshaped the grip to fit my hand. The finish is amazing too. Probably the best shooting bow I've ever had right out of the box.  He's a really great guy to work with too.

That is a car over coat finish.  It really aggravates me how people get my bow and hands and start fondling it.  Very smooth.  I no longer let anyone touch my bows.

I tried to get him to Satin finish it but he wouldn't. He said this is a super tough finish that he puts on his bows and satin would soften it. Man  what a looker though. I've never seen a finish quite like that. In the mean time while waiting on the bow I bought another Sunset too. "El Cazador" Maybe you've seen it before?  I've got the fever bad.

Congrats. Sounds like the bug bit you hard. Any pictures?

I do not have a homeopathic treatment for what Bucknuts has come down with, but perhaps someone can start a prayer thread or perhaps a support circle for him.  I feel I may have a conflict because my postings of the longbow of all longbows may have added to his addiction.

Yes Pavan you may have added to the fire a bit.  Oh well.  You can't take that money with you when you die.  Might as well have fun while you can!

I’ve got a Hill Tembo from 1977(just as John was leaving), a Steve Turay Northern Mist Shelton and had a James Berry Northstar and a John Shultz Grandpa.  I’d love to try one of Nate’s bows someday.  As more readily available, James’s and Steve have ASLs that are great bows to shoot.

Nate shorted you one arrow rest, he probably charged you for two and only gave you one. This is how they are suppose to look.

Pavan, for me that extra shelf would be as useless as titties on a barbie doll. Ray, Nates bows are out there but you've got to search a bit and be ready to pull the trigger when you find one.

I wouldn't know about that, I have never owned a Barbie Doll, a Ken, or any other kind of doll.  i did have those green army men.  They made great BB gun targets when i was 7 years old.

I do Know that a lot of chores around the house got neglected this weekend due to this bow.  I just couldn’t put it down.

Can’t fault you there. That bow is a beauty.  I can see why you wouldn’t want to put it down. 

And you have two now, right? What are the specs/details on your other one, El Cazador?

It is simply amazing how much piddly work around the house does NOT need to ever be done.

I was shooting today and was assaulted by nats. I may try to bow kill a turkey this year. I got one with a shotgun last year. Time for a Howard hill kill.

EVG, yep I have 2 now. The new one is 55@27, El Cazador is 53@27 1/2 With a Black back and black center glass with a clear belly over tempered bamboo. It's definitely different looking. They both shoot great. I'm loving shooting my new one. I named it Ol' Jake. That is the name of my brother and best friend/hunting buddy. He committed suicide a year and a half ago, so that one has a special connection with me.
