greetings from N Wis and the UP,,,,, looking at a Owen Jeffrey longbow, made in your state, anyone shoot these bows, or have any opinion on their bows..... thanks in advance
I don't use them , but did meet the guy this season in a WMA , he was out of business cards , older guy , and he was using a stickbow , that's the second person in ten years I saw in the woods with one besides me .
responded to SC thread about Jeffrey Owen, met him twice , but not fimular with his work
says he died at 91yr in march 2016 , not sure who is running it now , or who I met now
Really great man worked c Fred bear in the formative years of the sport I have a recurve and a longbow, both are quality products. sad to hear of his passing
Went to the new shop in Columbia last year. About 99% compounds and no traditional arrows or accessories. The only traditional bows were relecated to a back corner. When I inquired about ordering a longbow or recurve I got an attitude of "why?" We have lots of compounds".Yes it's sad how his shop has turned out.

Went to their shop about six years ago. My wife and me got a personal tour by Owen's son. really cool. We were able to see all the presses and bow that were in progress.
