Traditional Longbows for Kids

Recently, I’ve had many customers ask me about traditional longbows for their kids.  Longbows are simple and real easy to shoot, provided they are the proper draw weight.   It’s not fun for a child to try to pull and shoot a longbow if it’s too hard.   They won’t be very accurate and their confidence will suffer.

My grand daughter just out grew her kids Bear fiberglass bow.  Her Bear bow belonged to her mom (my daughter).   It’s close to 45 years old and still works great, however my grand daughter was ready for a step up.

I had a new English style longbow in my inventory and let her try it.   Boy, she just loved it.   It’s her favorite bow to shoot and she’s very accurate with it.   It’s just the right draw weight.  It’s 35# @28″ and 64″ long.

As she grows, this bow will grow with her.   She isn’t drawing it back fully yet, so I made her shorter arrows for her draw.

Here’s the best part…as she gets stronger and taller, she can still use the same bow, but will only need longer arrows.

So, for the investment of $150, these lighter English longbows are perfect for young archers.    Watch this video of my grand daughter shooting the English longbow and see how accurate and comfortable she is.

I am so proud of her.

As you can see,  Harry and Pat have had good hunting seasons with their traditional longbows.  All of these deer were shot from 20 yards or less.  The hickory bamboo backed longbows are accurate and real good for hunting.

Different views of my new handmade bow.

Different views of my new handmade bow.

Today I just finished another handmade bow.  I sure love to make these longbows.  This one really came out nice.  I used brown leather dye on the bamboo and it came out just beautiful.  I’m real happy with the way I painted the hand rest.  The green paint looks great against the deep color of the stained bamboo.  I finished it off with three coats of Birch wood Casey True Oil.

Another fine longbow, if I don’t say so myself!  Image,

This longbow is 64 inches long, right handed, 45 lbs @ 28″ draw and comes with a one year warranty.
