Indian Archery Longbow

Recommended Posts

I won this in a local auction,no markings of string length,draw weight etc. Just an Indian Archery sticker,looks like where the info is the labels are worn or torn off. there is a string with it and a belt quiver with some field tipped arrows. I looked it over for cracks,splits etc and didn't see any. It'll be home tomorrow,they are closed because of the weather today. It it's 35lbs or more i plan to hunt with it.

The only way to find out the draw weight is with a bow scale?

GL with it, cool bow!

Cancelled? 

Thanks,been looking for a longbow or recurve. Something that not only can i shoot but the kids can too. I have 2 BEAR brand compounds and they're too heavy for them.

I have two of those.  One i picked up for $5 at a garage sale.  I sanded it down and refinished it.  The other one an old neighbor gave me.  Poundage seems to be around 40.  I need to refinish the one my neighbor gave me.  Hand shock is harsh.  I collect old bows.  I love finding pieces of gear like these bows.

$5. Wow, i'm paying $35 for this one. Nice,i don't mind fixing things up to use at times.

 

Was the poundage marked on either of them?

Rem if ur still looking for kids trad bows i got a few you can have im in hamilton 08690

Thank you for the offer.

oldest son wanted to bow hunt but needs to have 1 that he's comfortable with. Not sure if he's still interested. He tried shooting 1 of my compounds but that was'nt working out to well. A cousin traded me a crossbow for truck tires a few years ago,He kinda wants to use that. I haven't even fired it myself.

I believe the poundage on one said #40.  It feels like more.  I have not strung the second one because I need finish sanding it.  There are no stickers or stamps that I can see.

I'm hoping this is atleast 40 but 35 is the minimum to hunt with here. I did see they were made as low as 25
