hi, my name is joe mahoney, two years ago i was interested in traditional archery but did not know where to start. i found out about the whittingham shoot trough websites. i went to the shoot, and talked to the vendors who were very helpfull. i tried several bows, i then saw an older gentleman from tanj i asked him for advice, and he helped me choose a bow, while giving me free archery lessons. i went to this years shoot and i brought my friend who also wanted to get into trad archery, he bought a $ 1000 bow! anyway we had a great time. this is a fantastic event, next year we will camp, cant wait! there is one shooting station that is a charity fund raiser for sick kids called the texas whackem, naturally being a sportsman i donated, just like every other sportsman at the event. a couple of weeks later i received a call from "doc" the presedent of tanj telling me " you won the bow" the bow, a buetifull hand made custom bow, from the allegheny mountain bow co.! i could not belive it! the bow looks awesome, and even though im new to trad, it shoots awesome! THANK YOU! i hope to send a pic. of a harvested deer with my new bow. see yas at next years whittingham.

Now we have two things in common, Joe. Whittingham and Allegheny. I just bought an Allegheny a few weeks ago. Picked it up at a local shop one day and shot it. First 10 arrows at 15 yards went right where I was pointing.
It's a lighter bow than I am used to (43# @ 28") and a real good shooter.
I will wait until the season is over before I get to tuning it, though. Should have it ready for next April's shoot.
Anyway, congrats on the win.
