Got the new bow about a week ago. Custom TimberHawk takedown Talon Hunter.

Went short at 56”….thing handles like a dream, draws easier than it should and is accurate. I shoot this bow better than any I’ve owned this far. Came in right at 50-51# via the scale.

Waiting on the strap on Selway quiver to arrive and then will start hunting with it….I’ve not had time to make any shots but hope to change that in the coming weeks.

She's a good looking bow. Is that Bacote?
New bows are always a nice addition. Enjoy that new shooter. Looking forward to some dead animal pics.

Bubinga riser.

They have another line of higher end bows they offer with all kinds of wood blends. I hope to order one next year

Randy builds me some pretty bows. Then I go bump, drag, ding and scuff them up hunting and competing with them. Pretty woods are nice. Doesn't make the bow shoot any better. Denser wood does add stabilizing weight though.

Looks very stabile. Bet it feels great. Recurves made me a better hunter. Two tears in my rotator cuff forced me to compounds for nearly 30 years. All better; just old and weak now.

Unfortunately it's on the menu for all of us who don't die young

I can’t say for sure but I think I will get on HGH or TRT when I start to slide.


I can handle a lot but the thought of not being able to be physically strong terrifies me.

TRT is definitely on the menu. I would be on it already if I didn’t think testing is a waste of time. I just don’t think mine has dropped enough that a doctor would give it to me, I am only 43. But I can tell the difference vs the energy and vigor of my 20’s. Big big difference.

buddy of mine has lifted weights his entire life, is in great shape at 41 and felt fine. He went and got tested and low and behold, he was low. Got on TRT and now really notices how low his levels were.

Only issue I have is once you get on, you never get off it. I'm turning 39 next birthday so I want to stave off taking it until I'm at least in my 50's if I can help it

This one is more of a “ working “ bow than a show piece.

I’m really liking the 56” length. And it shoots great. This is the best shooting bow I’ve had yet.

My 59’ Kodiak wins for pretty points but my hand and the bows grip don’t get along as well as a high wrist set up.

My strap on quiver is supposed to be in tomorrow so I’m waiting to see if it comes in. If it does I plan on hunting with it this week.

I've just grabbed 2 or 3 loose arrows and went and sat before.

TRT is definitely a game cha ger for me.
Ss far as working bows go I wouldn't buy one that wasn't. However life is to short to be hunting with just ugly bows.

This one seems to be a shooter. Strapped the Selway on it today and went and flung some arrows. This bow is just a natural. I really, really like the shorter length. Much easier to handle and shoot


Its not an ugly bow (at least by my standards) but it isn't a blacktail either. Those things are works of art. Scott at Timberhawk builds some really nice higher end bows. Thinking I may have to place an order here before too long for a 55-60# bow.

Broke in the new stick today…kinda.

Was hunting with the daughter today and had a buck come in at 12 yards minutes before legal shooting light ended, but was too dark. Drew back and anchored and shot right over it.

Not upset about it as it really was too dark to shoot and we both were reminded a lesson. All three of us made it to meet again another day.

Maybe tomorrow !
