Well I thought to myself that I would never do it, but I bought a traditional bow. My friend had this bow for a couple of years and asked me last night if I would like to buy it. Couldn't refuse the offer. It's a Dakota Longbow made by Rick Welch. The riser is made of Bacote wood and the limbs are made of (Zebrawood)? I think. It's a thing of beauty and I always liked shooting it in the past. Hopefully with enough practice I'll be ready for the season next year. Compound guys take note! I'm NOT going totally traditional, I still love my compound, but I need a little diversity in archery. If you guys never had shot traditional, give it a try. It's a blast!!! It will make you a better shooter and make those bow shooting muscles stronger too!! $200 bucks for a custom longbow!! Darn right I'm buying it!!!:wink: Here's the pics.
