    Compound Bows

    Compound bows are hand-drawn, hand-held bows with a mechanical component that reduces the draw weight and increases the speed of the arrow. Cables and cams (or pulleys) ease the draw and reduce the bow’s holding weight (called let-off). These vary from traditional bows in that they have these added mechanisms, and are often heavier. Depending on your skill level, shooting interest, capabilities, and simple preferences, a compound bow could be the right type of bow for new shooters. Not sure? Just ask our helpful associates or rent a bow and try it out in our shooting range.

    Bows we carry: Mathews, Bear, Bowtech, Diamond, Mission, Fleetwood.

    Traditional Bows

    Traditional bows are those that do not use a mechanical element, but instead rely entirely on the shooter's own strength and capability when it comes to drawing the bow. Additionally, traditional bows are typically lighter in weight than compound bows. Deciding which kind of bow to use--traditional or compound--really depends on your personal preferences and shooting styles. Some archers use both! Hunting and target bows available in both recurve and longbows. For both youth and adults. Featuring the newest from Fleetwood Traditional Archery.
