Longbows  

So long as the new moon returns in heaven a bent, beautiful bow, so long will the fascination of archery keep hold of the hearts of man  - Maurice Thompson 

Over the years that I have been involved in Traditional Archery, I came to fall in love with the longbow. Its pure simplicity was what has drawn me towards it. Uncomplicated elegance. For my own personal reason I have come to make the words of Henry Thoreau my own in the way I live my life:

"For a man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone" 

Selfbows

When that first string was drawn, the bow was  all natural material. Thousands of years of history can be experienced again. The all wooden bow was the beginning....

Prairie Longbow

The “Prairie Longbow” is a straight limb  68" longbow, that is based upon the legendary Flatbow. The Flatbow design has its origin on the North American continent as well as ancient Europe. This bow reflects the honest, hard working people of the Prairies. The simplistic design is solid in hand and cast is moderate, but accurate. My personal favourite!

Dragonfly Longbow

One beautiful spring morning while doing fencing on the farm, the mosquitoes was focussing hard on ruining my day, as only these insects can do after a long Manitoba winter. To keep myself from running for the truck, I started daydreaming about this new bow design of mine. I always like to give my bows a meaningful name and was wondering what to call this one. I cool breeze lifted as the sun began to warm the earth and I noticed that dragonflies where rising out of the green pasture. Now what happened next was nothing new to observe, but always produces a great delight in me. A mosquito came and sat on my shoulder and I was watching it, hoping.... When suddenly this beautiful emerald, blue and black dragonfly snatched the mosquito from my shoulder. I let out a cry of joy and my wife, startled, asked me what was going on. I told her "I got a name for my new bow!!"

I designed this bow for hunting!
