Years ago I did an interview that ran in PBS in mid 90s on Greg Noble Spickler and his NOBLE Longbows. I ended up buying one and loved it. I was having a serious problem with target panic creeping up at time and could not shoot worth a darn for a bit and sold it...blaming the bow rather than myself.

If it is around still I would like to attempt to buy it back if it is for sale or may be in near future....it has red elm flat grain limbs under clear glass...if I remember it has shedua and bocote riser and myrtle tips which are hand carved...he also puts leather wrap on grip sewn and finished with grouse feather. The bow was 57# at 28" I think and had SHORTHAIR inscribed on it.

Thanks for any help locating...that is what I get for selling bows...i have since vowed to never sell any gun or bow I buy with intent of long time ownership. I was able to find my Jeffery Royal Hunter a few years after selling it...but still looking for the Noble Longbow. Thanks again

Hello Ron, my brothers son-in-law is a Noble, but I don't think he is a bow, muchless one you've owned.....wheres a good place to eat there? Shirley, Vinny, and I are going to Charleston to see an art gallery. A friend gave us some pictures painted by a woman named Bolton. We want to see what else shes done. Sometime this week, anyway as we are here in Leesville.

damn just saw this Fred....my email is rchermanjr at hotmail dot com

depends on what you want to eat...seafood, bbq, steak, country food. my buddy owns a bbq joint that has been in his family 3 generations...sounds like I missed you though.

when you heading back to Maryland...if you got room and dont mind I might have something I would like to ask for you to carry up with you for someone in PA...but I just need to get it up to that area...they will come to you for pickup.

well I got hold of Greg Spickler and low and behold he had an almost identical bow to my original sitting in his basement....that he built for a guy that never paid for it or contacted him about the bow. Only real difference is the limbs are black walnut instead of red elm...and weight is 2 lbs difference...otherwise...nearly identical. [Smile]

he got hurt at work and is no longer able to forge knives...but is thinking of making bows again as he is being asked all the time. Give him a call and chat a spell and maybe he will get active in the bows again.

Thanks again and hope all are doing well in storms and such that have come through recently.
