With so many good bows out there I’m curious to know what are favorite bows they have or what would be your dream bow to acquire?

I pretty much have my dream bows. Still looking for the right J.D. Berry, Jack Harrison and Fred Anderson longbows.

My favorite bows are Hill style bows. I have five from HHA and two from Northern Mist. All are 68" long and all but one are in the range of 50-65# draw weight. The odd one is 40# draw weight.

There are some others I would like to acquire such as something from Berry, and I also would like to get a Ramer from Steve Turay.

The bows I have are nothing special but I often dream of shooting them better.

I have a couple favorite bows but my Dream bow is ILF BB, 25" riser too many to pick just one, with long limbs. But it's going to have to be just a dream bow for now.

I have had a bunch. Liberty Chief, Tall Tines recurve, JD Berry Morningstar, and a Blacktail. I liked each one.

My dream Bow? I guess it's a Stickflinger. I am waiting on one to be delivered. I am trying to cross over to all longbows.

Kind of tough as I used to think I was recurve guy. I felt more confidant when I hunted with one. If it doesn't work for me I'll pick up another Tall Tines recurve.

I have two of the three dream bows. My Toelke Pika and my original Schafer Silvertip recurve. The bow I have always wanted is a 68” HHA Wesley Special. I just don’t know what grip to get, so I guess that’s what has always stopped me from ordering one.

posts like this make me want to go out and buy bows [Big Grin]

my favorite ones right now that I shoot the most also are the tt titan and the unfortunately out-of-production whippenstick.

not sure what to dream of that would shoot better than the above two. But I will follow this thread for inspiration [Wink]

My favorite is my present Silvertip, my dream bow will be my next and last Silvertip.

Lefties are the only ones who hold the bow in the right hand, and my fletching is about as left-wing as I get.

I like Hill style bows. I have two JD Berrys, one I made and one Sunset Hill that all are superior to any other longbow that I have ever played with. If I wanted another bow, I cannot imagine what it would be.

Mine is a Saluki Sycthian, I had 2 in the past and man they're sweet. Second would be the S-tip with camo limbs like bldtrailer.
