Used archery stuff?

3 posts in this topic

I want to buy some used stuff; old long bow, maybe a few arrows, arm guard etc. Can someone tell me if there is a shop in MSP or Fargo that would have used stuff. I'm not talking top dollar stuff here fellas, less than $100 bucks for all of it. Just want to fool around a bit, shooting milk jugs etc. Would really like an old wooden longbow etc. Don't really trust what I might find on the big internet auction market. grin.gif

watch the classifieds, or check a pawn shop

My suggestion is to look around at estate sales, rummage sales, and classified ads. Last summer, I found a nice lemonwood longbow for $1, a Ben Pearson Mustang recurve for $5, and another as yet unidentified recurve for $10. They all shoot great. I build my own arrows, which isn't as cheap as one would think.

Another option is to build a longbow. I've done a half dozen. I'm no expert, but it's not as tough as it seems at first.

There's a place called B&B Supply in South Minneapolis. He has a bunch of traditional archery stuff.

Good luck. Hunting for a cheap bow requires some luck, but it's more just about keeping your eyes open and always looking.

And yes, you're probably right in keeping away from the auction giant.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
