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.

      Spent past 4 days (and nights till 2am) on Ottertail one wheelhouse and 4 portables. Bite was next to (0). 5 guys 4 day got 5 eye 14" to 17" and 6 perch 7 to 10". Friday -21 on the lake at 3pm. Pressure at 30.90. Did not move a lot but did some moving 30' to 9'. Saturday bit warmer day made it to 11 deg. Same result moved a lot humps, breaks valleys, 40' to 9'. Marked lots of fish in deeper water and some at 9 to 16'. Resort owner talked to half dozen other villages on west end, All having no success. Pressure never got below 30.28 but temps warmed to upper 20' on Sunday. Not a banner weekend but sometimes "that's fishing" Took a fall on slick icy parking lot week ago, found out today I have 3 fractured ribs. No wonder my right side hurt a bit.

      I've had issues with my Eskimo Z-51 reopening holes, getting caught at different parts along the hole ON occasion. Other times it ripped right though. So my answer pretty much sucks but from experience they aren't the best at opening holes.

      Very nice weather to be out chasing Walleyes/Saugers. Some extra special good news in this video wrap up
