Another Happy Customer

I really enjoy hearing from my customers and getting feedback about their purchases.  I had a recent customer mail me a real nice letter that I’d like to share.

“…Thanks for sending me your hand made bamboo arrow-I like it’s looks a lot.  And it shoots fast and clean, real nice…Thanks for your help.  Glad I phoned you.”

Robin Hood Arrow

I had a fine day out at Tomahawk Archers, last Sunday.

Toward the end of the day, my last customer gave all of us a quite unexpected and spectacular show of skill.  Bruce Gray, of Saline Michigan, was interested in my fir tapered shaft arrows.   We talked about their specs and I encouraged him to try shooting a few.

 Bruce shot a few fir arrows and I suggested he try out my bamboo arrows.   After Bruce shot his 3rd bamboo arrow, we heard a loud crack noise.  I wasn’t sure what happened…I thought he broke one of the knocks.

Bruce said, “Well, I think I have to buy these.”

We all looked up and couldn’t believe our eyes…he shot a Robin Hood!

Wow, everybody in the club had to come over and check out the Robin Hood arrows.  I think it’s pretty rare to Robin Hood wood arrows.   All the guys were impressed and came over to talk to Bruce and see the arrows.

It was the coolest thing and made my day to see it…first hand.  All, I could say was “Wow!”

It was a fine way to end the day.

My 2014 Schedule

Summer is finally here and I plan on going out my local archery clubs for their public shoots. It’s a great way to meet new archers and sell my archery equipment in person. This summer, I’ll be going to Tomahawk Archers.  They’re located in Temperance, Michigan.

They have a real nice club and the folks there are top notch. So if you live near Michigan or Ohio, it would be a great way to try out my longbows and arrows. I always encourage everyone to give them a try…with no pressure to buy!

New Hickory Bamboo Backed Medicine Longbow with Arrows

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.

I just finished a couple of dozen arrows for one of my customers and he stopped by my workshop to pick them up.   While he was there, he snapped a picture of me, proudly displaying my handiwork.  I really enjoy working in my little shop.  It’s always nice to chat with my customers and explain how I make my archery equipment.

Lincoln Bowmen Public Shoot May 2013

My family and I had a great time at Lincoln Bowmen for their public shoot in May 2013.   They invited me back to set up my goodies for sale.  We had a beautiful day.  I debuted my custom bamboo arrows.  Boy, they went over great.   I sold a bunch and even sold some bamboo shafts and feathers for those who like to make their own arrows.   So, now I’m making up more bamboo shaft arrows for sale.  The archers who have tried them, comment on nice they fly.

One of the best parts of my day is shooting with my granddaughter. She’s seven and a real good shooter. She has great form! She’s very serious and competitive. It feels good to pass this sport that has been a part of my life for so many years… down to my family.
