South Cox of Stalker Recurves built my new hunting partner. It's a 58" 3pc takedown. He built the bow way beyond my expectations! You can check out his work at www.stalkerrecurves.com South is a talented bowyer and a great guy to deal with.
For those of you who guessed Fox, Wallace and Blacktail, all of those bowyers and Charlie Bisharat (the founder of Stalker Recurves) all mentored under Jim Brackenbury. That is why all of the bows have similar lines. Great guesses guys!
Ferret WYO is the winner of the 180 grain silver flame!
Congratulations Randy! You really are one lucky dude...lol

Thanks bruddah JC! I hope I have time to chase some hogs this weekend.
I also want to mention that South has a Schleyer Model, named after Bart Schleyer. Here is the info from his website.
The Schleyer—Limited and numbered edition
A couple of years ago, I sat down and watched one of the best outdoor dvds I’ve ever seen, Primal Dreams. If you haven’t seen it yourself, I strongly recommend it. At the end of the movie was a dedication to a man named Bart Schleyer. A short time later, I read Mike Mitten’s tribute to Bart in Traditional Bowhunter Magazine and learned about Bart Schleyer, his life and how it was tragically cut short. Though I never met him personally, his story resonated with me. Bart possessed all of the attributes I believe every bowhunter should strive for; he was humble, selfless, an excellent woodsman, conservationalist, athletic—one who’s wealth was measured not in financial terms, but in experiences and friendships. To get a true perspective on who this man was, I strongly encourage you to read the passage Mike Mitten, a close friend of Bart’s, wrote after his passing. I have included a link to it, http://www.brothersofthebow.com/html/solospirits.html
When Bart passed, he left behind a four year old son, Artyom. Bart’s sister, Claudia, set up a fund to help put Artyom through college. Thought it has been almost two years since I first read Bart’s story, it has never been far from my mind. I’ve wanted to give back to a man that so selflessly gave to others and exhibited such high moral and ethical standards. I wanted to do more than just contribute financially to Artyom’s future, I wanted to help in what little way I could to make sure the story of his father was not forgotten; that more, hopefully many more hunters and non-hunters alike would read of him and be inspired by his life, as I have been.
After much ruminating, I decided the best way I personally could honor Bart, would be to build a limited edition bow in his honor. The Schleyer will be limited to 100 bows, all signed and numbered. Each one will be built to the bow length and draw weight specifications of the shooter. The handle will be a Striker handle, with ebony and snakewood. The limbs will be backed with ziricote and faced with leopard wood. From the proceeds of each sale, $100 will be donated to Artyom’s college fund.
Enjoy it Ryan! Are ya gonna put 1 of your custom strings on it, or did ya all ready??
