Never shot one but always liked the looks of them, I'll try one sooner or later......like I need another bow. [dunno]

I am posting this picture for Steve Carpenter from Indiana. This is his three piece Pronghorn takedown. All Bocote Longbow.

Talking about natural camo; this is it.

Thanks for posting the picture Matt. It's Herb's short handle with his 60" limbs but makes a 58" bow on the short handle. 49# @ 26" it shoots great like all of Herb's Bows. Has to be my favorite bow! I just ordered a one pc to match it. Herb is a very personable Man and easy to work with. Can't go wrong with a Pronghorn!

agreed,,, one of the best 3 pieces I personally shot! I wont say if it was faster or quieter but I know after I shot it I really wanted one....accuracy was dead nuts for me..

I remember 25yrs ago in TBM nearly 1/2 the success photos used pronghorns..

I have a 3 piece that I bought three years ago at the Colorado Bow hunters. Jamboree.
It is a great bow. Quiet, quick and beautiful.
The first season I hunted with it I shot a mule deer, and two white tail. The second season I got a coyote and another 2 white tail.. And the third season another white tail.
yup, I like my pronghorn. 62" and 54#
This past season I hunted with my Black widow but have put it away and have been shooting the pronghorn since the season closed

I had a 3 peice for a while, don't remember why I sold it , but have often wished I hadn't. One of the only bows I have let go that I keep wanting another.

I love my 3-pc takedown!!! It is extremely forgiving and sends the arrow right where I'm lookin.....can't ask for anymore than that!

I've always liked the looks of them and wanted one. That bocote bow posted above is gorgeous. I think I could just sit and admire it for a bit before taking it out to shoot.

Someone on here has one in GREEN GLASS. Talk about beautiful....oh my. If I would get one, it would be very difficult for me to stay away from that all green bow.
Maybe the person that owns it will post it again so everyone can see how nice it looks.

Let me tell ya Larry , from the time I opened the box I have had a grin that sometimes hurts my jaws from looking at my Bacote bow! It is Awesome in every way. Herb's wait time is 3 to 4 months. For anyone wondering.
