This is a quiet, smooth shooting bow, too.
Michael J. Edelman
I purchased the bow in #40, even with a 32"DL there is no stacking (feels like about 50#) and the draw is very smooth.
Jessica Graney
Overall a nice shooting bow that will bring a lot of fun.

Size Name: 40# Verified Purchase
Not too long ago my interest in archery was rekindled by the impulse purchase at a yard sale of an old 33# Wing Archery recurve for $20. The bow sat in my basement, untouched, until I discovered one day that I hadn't sold all my gear after all. I still had gloves, tabs, a stringer, and most importantly, a half dozen cedar shafts. I bought an inexpensive target stop and started shooting a few arrows once or twice a week. And eventually I decided I need a proper longbow, like the Saxon I foolishly sold several years back.

Custom bows were beyond my budget, and for a while I was tempted to buy a Bear Montana, believing it to be the lowest US-made longbow. Turns out the Montana is an import, as are an increasing number of low-end and even mid-range bows. That led me to consider the much cheaper Samick Red Stag, as I'd heard a lot of good things about their recurves. The Red Stags are in short supply, but then I read some positive reviews of the bows from OMP, which are supposedly from the same factories making the Samick bows. Given that, together with the fact that if I bought it from Amazon I knew I'd have no problem with returns if it turned out to be a dud, or defective, I ordered a 40lb Ozark Hunter . I picked that bow and weight because I'm 6'2" and I draw 30", which means the bow will pull 45# at my draw, and for almost all North American game there's really no need for a bow that pulls more than 40 or 45 lbs.

The bow arrived two days ago, and my first impression was that while it's not as nicely finished or detailed as a custom bow, it was very well made and very attractive. There are a few flaws- the carving of the grip could be smoother, for one. The tip reinforcements end rather abruptly, rather than being blended into the limbs as they were on my old Saxon.

The bow is excellent. It shoots as well as other more expensive longbows that I have bought. There is one problem however that would make me hesitant to recommend the purchase of a bow from this company. This is the second bow that I bought from them and both bows came without a string. If I had not had extra strings for my other bows I would not have been able to use the bows until I could get a string, and if you are new to archery you might not know the string length you need. I have never heard of a company shipping a new bow without a string.

I purchased the bow in #40, even with a 32"DL there is no stacking (feels like about 50#) and the draw is very smooth. There's a great early weight to the draw and the grip feels good in the hand (I wrapped the wooden handle with some 3R leather)

Visually the quality is very good, I can't find any blemishes anywhere. I have only shot a couple dozen arrows through it so far but the cast is good (the D-longbow design is not going to be as efficient as a reflex/deflex or recurve) and the handshock is low, its has a great sounding "thrum" on release.

Excellent value for the money and a really fun bow to shoot!
