22647Looking for longbow
- Apr 13, 2007Hey group,
I am looking for a longbow to use in our SCA Archery events. 70 or so
inches long, and a draw weight of 50lbs or so, with a 30 inch draw. I
wish to also hunt with this bow.
I have been shooting for years, but a Compound bow, and aluminum arrows
are not allowed at sca events.
So I have been scouring the web looking for something more period. I
have seen bows made from Hickory costing a mere hundred dollars on ebay
and one other website, to Yew and Osage Orange bows for 500-1500
dollars. Being on a limited budget I am looking for something more in
the 100 dollar range.
I do have 2 compound bows that are also for sale. They are older
models, I am thinking one is a Bear Whitetail Hunter, and another is a
PSE, left handed model.
I am keeping my compound bow for hunting, and I have a junior compound
bow my daughters use.
Also a good source for cedar arrows will be needed. I live in
