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. I was informed (misinformed- see comment below) that the Montana is an import, as are an increasing number of low-end and even mid-range bows (the Montana is in fact made in the US). 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.

As others have said, this is a well-built bow. The finish, however, not so. The notch finish is shoddy at best and quite rough. You'll likely need to grab some fine sandpaper and sand it smooth.

So, why the one star? Simple! What you're looking at in Amazon's photo is NOT the bow you'll be receiving. The photo up right now shows a riser of maple, purple heart, and a thin stripe of walnut. This is a PREVIOUS model. The current model as of September 2015 is a riser made of almost entirely walnut with a bit of maple and possibly ebony? Not sure what it is, but it's a letdown. Until OMP changes their listing, my intention is to reduce their sales as best as possible. This is a $170 bow being sold at $235 as if it were still made with purple heart. That's not okay.

Otherwise, this is a fantastic bow. There's no stacking whatsoever, and it has a lovely draw. Little handshock as well, but remember this has to do with your string and the weight of your arrows, too. I've got some heavy arrows, and they work phenomenally! Overall, I'm quite happy with this bow, but beware that you will not be receiving the bow in the picture. Check OMP's catalog for the most recent Ozark Hunter model.

One last thing: the bow DOES come with a string. Make sure to check the shipping tube for it, as it'll likely be in the very bottom.

I have shot some other longbows before, but never one that shoots as beautifully and true as this one. My husband calls it "authoritative" which is about right. I put a traditional bear hair rest and plate on the arrow shelf, measured 7" for brace height, added a nocking point, and can shoot with ease at higher than normal longbow speeds, using 28" aluminum and carbon arrows. We are both LH archers and thought 45# might be a bit much, especially for me who shoots a 34# compound bow normally. Surprisingly, we can still shoot it and imagine it as a decent hunting bow, with practice. The craftsmanship is also excellent. Those who do not have a longbow stringer should get one as it doesn't come with the bow and recurve bow stringers might not work. I am not complaining because I had a longbow stringer already. This bow is very easy to string and take down with a simple longbow stringer. It is a beautiful, reasonably priced bow that we will be proud to show off at club events. Thanks Amazon and OMP!

This is a great starter bow! It's beautiful and well made. Just a good learning bow to really start off on though is key, though it can handle itself in the woods if needed of course. I highly recommend this bow and it's price if your interested in venturing into the longbow world. I do recommend that you buy an extra string and some bow strong wax for the string it comes with wears out fairly fast if you use it sufficiently every day or so like I did and wax will keep a bow string going 10 times longer then what would without it. Stay safe and good hunting!

I got the 40# one for my girlfriend for her Birthday, and she loves it; I even like it myself. It is very nice looking. Out of all the traditional bows I've shot this one is pretty good for the price. It isn't an $800 bow, but that is to be expected.
Things to consider:
You will notice this bow has a lot of hand shock. This has a lot to do with it being a long bow, but I suggest either getting some conventional rubber string silencers. (For a more traditional look use fur). I put some rabbit fur strips on hers and it reduced the hand shock by at least 50%. Never is also a well used fur. Along with reducing the hand shock it done a good job dampening the string sound.
This bow also needs a shelf and strike plate. Look on YouTube at doing your own with Velcro. Yes Velcro, trust me it works great.
Overall a nice shooting bow that will bring a lot of fun.
Have fun, good shooting!
