I took a bunch of shots, 12 or so, at one critter at 18 or 20 yards. Clean misses every shot. It got to where I would have felt bad if I hit him. I tend to get a little personal sometimes. I strained my shoulder and elbow fighting with my larger combination ladder and was advised to not do anything like paint my house or shoot bow for a couple of weeks. My critter friend will be safe for a while, But bunny and dove season is coming, I will lay off my 300 arrows a day ritual, but my injuries are lift related, not the bow pulling tendons, so I will get after those on cooler days.

I just gave up the best right hand only bow that I have ever owned, my 60@27 68" custom lay up yew/bamboo Hill blank. I found someone that could shoot it.

Let's get this back on my the first page where it truly belongs. Shooting lots lately with my Chek-Mate yew golden hawk given to me as a present from my wife back in the mid 80s have had many. asls over the years but there's just something about this bow,I can't explain it.its way heavier than I like to shoot but it seams Ido shoot it well.its way to hot up here in Sask right now and still so many crops standing.hopefully cool weather is coming and we can get hunting.

Steve an odd request, if you don't mind. Years ago I had the chance to shoot a Chek-Mate recurve at the Sioux City trad shoot. Guys were standing around talking about how good the Chek-Mates shot. This particular one was like a longer version of a Bear Grizzly. No Grizzly ever shot that good, they were right. I am not familiar with a yew longbow Chek-Mate and am curious what they look like.

Hey Pavan.I used to live in Abbotsford BC where Chek-mate was located.a real good friend of mine owned an archery shop in Abbotsford and was a very close friend of the original owners Dorothy and Larry .I spent many evenings with Ron in chek-mates shop watching them build bows.I think over the years I owned every model they made.For the price they built the best bows ever rivalling all the top names.They made 3 models of longbows the only difference being the handle configuration.The golden hawk was their true Hill style bow ,that I have.My wife ordered it through my buddy for a Christmas present 3 lams of Yew with a pres. Bubinga riser and clear glass.Man that thing shoots.Back in the late 80's I got a Hill big 5 at 71#s my chk-mate is 64# ,the chek-mate totally outshot the hill.Now I have a little trouble with that much weight but she still shoots lights out for me.There recurves came in many styles and even their lowest price bows were excellent shooters.There 3 piece Hunter and hunter 2 and 3 were as good or better than the top end bows being built today at 1/2 the price .Its a shame they retired.

Hmm I wonder if Mark will still make a golden hawk. I was just talking to him the other day. Maybe a Hill bow with foam imagine that.

Hey Ari, I'm sure Mark has the forms,you,d have to ask him. Mine was built before Mark worked at Chekmate.

Negative, just talked to Mark. Him and Larry cannibalized it longtime ago for a different form.
Apparently the demand just died down too much once the r/d design came out.

You talking about Ron Boormnan by chance?

The bow Pavan is talking about might be the "Falcon" which is supposed to be ultra smooth.

I haven't posted in a while, but I was blessed on our season opener on Sept 9th, with this rear 10pt still in velvet. Normally by opening season they rubbed it all off
