- Custom Built Longbows since 1978 -

about lIBERTY bOWS

​From Roseburg, Oregon in the heart of the Umpqua Valley, Liberty Bows are "Hand" crafted the old fashioned way one bow at a time, for the traditional archer who demands the best possible quality and performance in a custom longbow. From the time I built my first longbow in 1978 to the present, my bows have evolved over the years, through a labor of love, into my current designs.

Liberty Bows are designed to be stable, accurate and enjoyable to shoot. From the contoured grip of my R/D bows to the traditional straight grips of the Hill style bows and out to the sculptured tip overlays, my bows are handcrafted for the most discriminating archer in mind. 
I specialize in custom longbows with yew, bamboo or myrtle core wood in the limbs, a variety of exotic wood choices for veneers and handle risers, along with complimentary handle and tip overlays. Each bow is finished with durable satin epoxy finish and comes with a three strand flemish twist string.

Over the years I have developed and field tested numerous longbow designs. My current line of bows represents years of refinement. Whether you are a hunter or a target shooter, my goal has been to offer a selection of traditional longbows that will meet your individual preferences in design, beauty and performance. 

I am fortunate to have successfully harvested my share of big game animals and also been rewarded with a couple of first place wins in Oregon's Pope and Young Shoot, a competition which pits together both longbow and recurve shooters alike. The Pope and Young is a competition unique to Oregon and dates back to 1936.

 At its inception, the Pope and Young Shoot was established to be both entertaining and a test of archery hunting equipment for the coming archery season. Day one consists of the Clout (180 yards) and Wand (100 yards) shoot and the second day is a fifty round animal shoot with targets set at realistic hunting distances. This is a true test of an archers overall skills. The original Pope and Young trophy, which has all winners ascribed, is now the property of Traditional Archers of Oregon and can be viewed at www.taoregon.com.

 So whether you are headed out for that once in a lifetime hunt or for a day at the range, shoot a bow that has proven itself in every conceivable arena; enjoy the freedom of traditional archery and shoot a Liberty Bow.
