Resurrection Longbows

Introducing what I call resurrected longbows.  These are longbows that I find at garage sales that are broken and in need of “resurrecting”.  I made a little video talking about them.  They are pretty neat and well worth the time to make them new again and give them a second life.

Deer taken with her bamboo backed hickory longbow

Pat Mitchell in South Dakota

With hunting season upon us, I wanted to share some pictures of deer taken with a traditional hickory longbow. This is Pat Mitchell with her traditional harvest taken with a bamboo backed hickory longbow.

My good friends, Harry Mitchell and his wife Pat live in South Dakota and only hunt Pope and Young deer.

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.
