Today I attended the annual Wild Horse Creek Bows Customer Appreciation Shoot at the home of Mike and Susie Dunnaway in Perry, KS. I had placed another order with Mike at the UBM Festival in February and hoped that there would be a chance my bow would be done by the shoot. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I walked into the greeting area and saw this sign.

Woohoo!!!! I ordered this bow specifically for my 2020 Mexico ocellated turkey hunt because I wanted a short little recurve for blind hunting. Now I get to practice on our Easterns first!

Bow info: The bow is a two-piece takedown recurve. It is 54" long and pulls 53# @ 28". The limb core is maple and the limb veneer is spalted maple. The riser, limb tips and overlays are cocobola. The handle wrap is beaver tail. I shot it all day on the course and it will flat sling an arrow! The photos I show here just don't do it justice.

Look out turkeys!
