      Well I have decided to get back into bow hunting, I have a home made bow that I bought from some one about 14 years ago from washington State, cant seem to remember who the person was, But any ways, when I put the bow away about 11 years ago I forgot that I stuck it up in the attic, and it was leaning against the wall, it now has bent limbs. I read an article here on this web page about straigntening limbs on a recurve, I shoot a 64″ wooden long bow with no fiber glass, at 60 lbs, can I use the hot water trick to bring the limbs back, or is the bow a gonner.
      I have tried to look on the net for bowers in the n/e Ohio area, but have had no luck
      Thank You
      Tom:oops:

      Welcome to tradbow.com,Tomma. You bow could go either way, but if you’re serious about getting into archery and bowhunting my recommendation would be to hang it on the wall and buy a glass-backed bow, which you can find new really cheap and top-end custom bows used at great prices if you shope around. it will be SO much easier to tune and get you to shooting well. Once you’ve climbed the learning curve, then you might want to go back and mess with it. At least that’s they way I’d go about it. Dave
