I'am looking for a longbow,made of wood with out fiberglass backing prefer#35 to#45 lbs at a 28-29"draw. I will use it for mostley targets as in reinactments of the fur trade era 1800's.I know there are all kinds of places to buy from,but am hoping someone might have a good one at a decent price or be able to tell me where to get one. Thanks all for any help. By the way I'am in the ANCIENT ONES OF MAINE if anyone interested :thumbsup: Thanks,Terry

Check your local pawn shops. I had a guy come in the other day that bought a recurve from a pawn shop and paid 20 bucks for it. He paid more for the string he needed than the bow. :rofl:

bailey boy,

Go to the Tradgang.com and ask there. You'll get tons of responses.

Or you can start learning to make them your self. Read up on my site. You can make your own arrows too. :thumbsup:
