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.

Today, I’d like to debut my new Medicine Bow.
It’s a Bamboo backed Hickory Longbow that comes with three custom made arrows. It’s a beauty which I am very proud of.
This longbow is 60″ long with a 35 lb. @ 27″ draw and right handed. I stained the bow an Osage color and hand painted the design. For decoration, I also added a glass primitive arrow head and brown rabbit fur around the leather grip.
Included in this set are three 27″ long, 5/16″ diameter POC arrows. The feathers are both glued and tied down.
This all can be yours for only $225 plus shipping.

Since hunting season has officially begun, I wanted to post a picture of my good friend, Harry Mitchell. He lives in South Dakota and is a traditional bow hunter. Harry’s pictured here with his traditional harvest and the hickory longbow he used for the hunt.
Last weekend, I went out to my favorite archery club, Tomahawk Archers. They’re located in Temperance, Michigan, near the Ohio border. They’re real nice folks and always treat me right. I enjoy meeting the archers and talking about my longbows and handmade arrows.
We took some photos at Tomahawk Archers and put together a nice gallery to show what I have available for sale. I have traditional longbows, English style longbows, and my custom painted “Medicine Bows”. Fir and bamboo shaft arrows and custom made quivers.
I have new one of a kind throwing tomahawks for sale. Info. and pictures coming soon for those!
Just give me a call to discuss specifications and prices. Bows start at $150 and arrows start at $8 each. I accept money orders and credit cards that can be paid by invoice through Pay Pal.
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.
I’ve got many bamboo backed hickory longbows for sale and ready to be shipped for this season’s hunt.
Starting at $150, it’s an affordable way to try out traditional archery. Give me a call at 313-318-4185 for more info.
This is my personal bow and quiver that I hand painted last year. I had a lot of fun painting them. I let my imagination go and it came out really nice. The colors look great and have an American Indian look about them.
The truth be known, shots at game are few and far between, why not harvest with an arrow truly worth the value of the game itself?
Fletched with three wild turkey feathers that have been glued and tied down in a classic shape.
Howard Hill 140 gr. hunting point that will not windplane.
A fir shaft 11/32” tapered to 5/16”. Shaft total weight of over 500 gr.
Truly a special handmade arrow.
