This was my dads bow who can no longer shoot. Im pretty sure it’s a Jeffrey but there aren’t any markings except “PRO135” and the specs. The bow is 62” and 60@28. No twists or major issues. The finish is peeling up on the limbs. The bow is quiet and shoots a fast arrow. $145 Tyd USA and PayPal only.

Just got back from texas and had another skinny box waiting for me! This is jim belchers newest creation. This bow is called a hilljack and it’s basically a retro version of his famous Union Jack longbow. This bow is a stringfollow and boy does it shoot! The craftsmanship is some of the best I’ve seen on any bow. The finish is superb and it’s just an all out stunner! It’ll be with me tomorrow on the 3d course. Enjoy

Just received a 66” 55@28 Shelton from greg “a tag” and i figured I would show it off a little! This little bow is a sweet shooter! I haven’t had time to run it through the chrono yet or take it to the the 3d course but it seems pretty snappy and accurate. It’s absolutely dead in the hand and quiet. I put a new rhino string on and redid the leather on the grip and plate. i gave it a good cleaning and shined her up a bit. It turned out nice! Before and after pics

Here’s a bow that you don’t see pop up for sale too often. This is a Lofton longbow made by the late Bobby lofton. I’m not exactly sure the model name but it’s 68” 55@28 with a little backset. The limbs are bamboo and the riser is gray actionwood. The bow is in nice condition with just a little finish loss on the top limb. It’s a solid bow and a good little shooter. $250 tyd lower 48 PayPal only.

Picked up a bow the other day that I’ve been looking for since 2004. This a “gull” by archery traditions and it was designed by dan quillian. This is the bow he took his last grizzly with I believe. I’ve heard these existed but never seen one in person and have only seen a few pics.…. well I stumbled across one the other day. 72” 55@28 and wild looking lol

Here is an awesome bow by the master of the hill style longbow, Steve Turay. This American is shelfless and it’s set up to shoot righty or lefty with leather shelf extenders on both sides of the riser. This bow is 70” and 56@28. The bow is one of the very few all osage bows Steve has built in his career. It has beautiful osage under clear glass for limbs with tip overlays and an osage riser. This bow is blister fast and such a joy to shoot. It’s a little out of my poundage range so I’m going to move it along. 475 Tyd USA only

here is an archery traditions bamboo longhunter in the scarce length of 64”. This bow is 64” 59@28. The bow is in fair condition but it sure does shoot. I wonder the stories this one could tell. This bow is from Dans stomping grounds in Georgia. These are a bomb proof work horse of a longbow. I try and scoop these quillian bows up whenever I can. This one is a tad bit heavy for me. The bow shoots awesome! $225 Tyd USA only

Hate to do it but after missing over a week of work due to Covid I need to make up some ground. This bow is a 68” 57@28 Tim Meigs “bamboo longbow”. This bow is in really nice condition and I’m pretty much the second owner. The original owner had passed down his collection to one of his neighbors that was an outdoorswoman but she was not an archer so she listed it for sale. I was able to scoop this one up (after jumping through many hoops I might add). I’m a huge Tim Meigs fan and I believe that he was a better bowyer than a few others from that era that got the most attention. $400 Tyd USA only

I don’t buy many bows back after I sell them and since 2003 when I really started buying, selling, and trading I’ve maybe brought 4 back home. However, I just had one make it’s way back. I don’t know why I sold this one in the first place because I think it shoots really nice and there arent too many of these out there. This is the Dave Miller granma with the concaved convexed construction and it’s just a neat bow all around. I had this one and Dave also made me a blood which is similar to this bow but it’s laid up like normal without the concaved convexed limb configuration. I wasn’t too happy with that blood model but this granma shoots pretty good. When I owned it the first time I didn’t get to really take it to any shoots or anything but that’s going to change soon enough.
Granma came home for the holidays.   content media

A couple months back an older gentleman I work with brought in an old box of arrows for me after he found out i was in to archery. He is building a house and fixing to move here shortly after he retires so he is in the process of decluttering and getting rid of stuff he doesn’t use or need. He came across this old box of arrows and asked if I wanted them and I said ”heck yea“. These were old crestwood arrows with hilbre and ma2 broadheads. The feathers were in good shape so I kept them on and just did a little light sanding, removed the heads, cut to my length, and refinished them. There were also these 4 short shafts in the box. They spined 50-54 and these were perfect for my shorter draw length shooting Buddy. He has been wanting me to make him up a couple arrows with lighted nocks for this particular farm he hunts. It’s a rule that this farmer has for hunting his land…lighted nocks only. He’s had some issues with lost arrows, broadheads, and his cattle. Anyways, I made up two shafts with lighted nocks and 2 with regular nocks, refletched and refinished. The cool thing about these arrows is that they’re marked 49 cents! I had to leave that stamp on there so I finished over the top so it’ll never rub off. They turned out pretty good. Here are the 4 short arrows I made for my Buddy.

Made a great trade with a fellow member for one of the bows I posted on the classifieds earlier this week. I was able To pick this all osage shelf-less northern mist american up. This bow is 70” and 56@28. I talked to steve and said it’s one of there very few all osage bows he’s ever built. The bow had a little leather shelf extender under the grip to shoot off of. The bow was set up to shoot right handed. I shoot mostly right but I do switch hit so I peeled the old grip off and put new leather on with leather shelf extenders on both sides. She’s ready to shoot both ways now. I’m definitely having fun with this bow!! The new grip turned out great!

Well boys, she’s finally here. My carbon classic from northern mist showed up on the doorstep this afternoon. This bow is 67” 53@28 with a laminated riser, carbon back, bamboo limbs, and a vintage white glass belly from glass I had sent steve last year. (I came across some Old glass via a friend out west). The bow is flawlessly crafted per usual. You can pick up one of steves bows and instantly know that he has thousands under his belt. When you site down one of these bows you can see the influences from some of the greats such as tim Meigs and louie armbruster etc. Everything is straight and symmetrical and the string grooves are perfect. The bow pulls silky smooth and I’m not exaggerating by saying that this is without a doubt the most dead in the hand hill style longbow I’ve shot. This bow Feels like you’re shooting a mass riser recurve. It’s that good! All in all I couldn’t be happier. Enjoy the pics

Here is a solid zebra by master bowyer louie armbruster in a rare draw weight for sale. This bow has a few beauty marks here and there and is missing the zebra sticker but it’s a perfect shooter and this bow straight rips an arrow. It’s right up there with some of my quickest bows. You don’t see too many of these zebras with black glass either. The bow is 70” 57@29 and made in 1981. $315 Tyd USA and PayPal only.
