That's a shame Matt. Do you have another bow to shoot? If not send me a pm. It's not much but I can send you a bow and some arrows.

Had some bows stolen from me in a burglary a few years ago including my Rocky Mountain Recurve with 2 sets of limbs, a beautiful one piece Bruin, a '70 Super Kodiak, several other Bears, a Pearson 2-piece recuve, and worst of all, 3 self bows built by my father in the 1930's. They stole 2 really nice Herter's bows, and 2 great Herter's leather quivers, both stuffed with finished aluminum arrows etc. Just thinking about it fills me with rage.

I have never found any of my bows and would love to have them back---would also love to remove the thief from this planet or at least make sure he will never be able to reproduce.

Sorry for my rant, and I hope you recover your equipment and that the thief is identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Steadman-thanks for the offer, luckily I have a couple more bows, lucky thing is my Mohawk was hanging right beside it in a bow sock and they didn't touch it.
On the bright side(if there is one) I have a dozen raw shafts waiting to be finished, I guess I have some motivation to get them done quickly.

Leave the garage door open and place a trail camera up and see if the thieves come back. Heck I would place a trail cam facing the street and see who looks suspicious, thieves are like arsonists they always return to the crime to see whats going on.

I would start looking in near by pawn shops!
As soon as they realize they can't pull the bow they're going to sell it.

I second the idea of checking around in any woods nearby, etc.. I had something stolen out of my car one night that the thieves ditched in some tall grass in an empty lot. The police came, checked around the area and found it.

Hope your stuff turns up. That is a bummer. Can't hardly leave anything open or unlocked these days.

I like the idea of checking the local woods, creeks, empty lots etc. If it was kids, they might think it looks cool but, won't be able to shoot it so they may stash or dump it. They probably don't want to take it home to Mom and Dad either. Very few people would know the value of a trad bow. Good luck. Theives suck.
