Free to good home (bows)
« on: July 19, 2013, 12:50:00 PM »
As some of you know i'm an amateur bowyer. As we bowyers prototype new designs we sometimes miss weight, dont like the performance characteristics or create some flaw in the bow we just dont like. These bows fit one or more of the catagories. I have 3 bows that I built that I dont shoot and I want to give them away to someone who will appreciate them. All are in good working order and will last a long time. I would like to give them to someone who needs a bow and cant get one for whatever reason. If you have multiple bows and want to try something new on the cheap these arent for you. If you  cant allocate money to a bow because of other more important obligations (family and such)you are an ideal candidate. I dont want you to prove your level of need, thats on the honor system. So heres the deal. Put your name in the hat if you want for 1 individual bow only. If there are more than one name for each bow I will put all the names in a hat and draw for the winner. If you win PM me a shipping address and I will send it to you. I dont want to see these bows in the clasifieds, If you no longer want the bow give it away to someone who needs it, please dont sell it! So all you have to do is choose the bow that fits you best #1, #2 or #3. here we go...

#1
 
 

#1- RH 56" 57# @ 28" Will be good for a draw of 28" or less. Mac ebony with curly Black Limba limb veneers.
#2
 
 


#2-RH 62" 56# @28" Will be good for a draw to 29"
TX ebony with curly maple limb veneers and beaver tail grip.

#3
 

#3 RH 62" 55#@28" good for draw of 29" or less.
TX ebony with curley maple limbs. Leather grip.

ok GOOD LUCK! remember all I need is the bow #. You can only choose 1 bow. I am leaving town for the weekend and willcheck this when I return Tuesday. If there are enough name Ill draw then.

I'll put my name in the hat for #1. Been bringing a few more people around to trad. Beautiful bows. I would happily pay shipping if my name is pulled.

What a great man! There still truly are good people in the world. Very generous sir.

I will put in for #3. New to trad and would love to get my father into it with me. He passed down hunting to me and I'd love to pass down traditional hunting to him!

Thank you Mr. TX.

Put me in for #3. Those are some fine looking bows, and as a poor bow-less student needing a new one I'd be happy to own any of the three. Thanks.

All are beautiful bows! I'm new to trad and I am hooked. I sprang for a light weight bow to learn on. Now with fall season coming on I sure could use some more kick to ensure a clean kill.

If you would, please consider me for #3 or #2. Prefer #3 for the style.

You are doing a great thing. And even if You don't choose me the whole idea make me smile. Choose me and I will pass my current bow on to yet another buddy who has taken interest.
