My Robertson Stykbow Wolfer is 58" but uses bow bolt...and I was able to easily break apart and stick it in side pocket of my pack and strap in place for a 4 mile hike out after shooting my bear in Canada. Very compact and solid design. He also now has a CoyWolf which is the same riser setup with more of a hybrid longbow limb design.

He is developing something that will pack even smaller too.....he hinted around to on the TradQuest Pod Cast he just did.

You might be chasing a unicorn. 48-50" are recurve dimensions. Longbows of that length are short-draw bows (paddle bows). String angles are pretty wide at those dimensions, which creates stacking and extra stress on the materials (inducing set). If you want to short-draw, then you're good to go with a longbow design. But if you're drawing somewhere in the 26"+ range, you're going to need a longer bow. Or, make your peace with the recurve.

Where abouts are you packing in Israel? Up in Yehudian NP? Most of what I remember was pretty rocky for stump shooting -- except up north.
