      Hi everyone new to this site long time archer

      I shoot a few recurves Martin Jagaur Elite and a Bear Black Bear

      But was thinking of trying a long bow for small game this season

      I was thinking of trying one of Rudders bushman and some of his Flu flu’s

      I was wondering if anybody had an opinon if his bows

      Thanks

      Here’s my Rudder bow. She lets you know when you’re shooting it but it gets the job done. I was shooting at about 15 yds, She’s about 48#’s.

      I put a grip on to help tame her a little. Not the purtiest sewing job but I ain’t the purtiest thing around either.. 😀

      Mountainman- Welcome to the site. Good luck with your bow project with your nephew.

      R2-First of all, I like the looks of that bow!! Second, I am impressed with your engineering to prolong the life of that target. I shoot a very similar target and I have a very similar issue, but instead of fixing it up nice, I just start shooting at the back leg after the chest is shot out of it.

      Thx about both!

      His name is now Stumpy…

      The walking bear target I had got named “Humpy” when I engineered it.

      I’ll leave that up to your imagination. 🙄

      Some targets I can extend their shooting life, some I cannot. Depends on where they fail. Lot of them the back breaks and I haven’t solved that yet. Other than quit shooting high.:D Ummmmm, maybe they’re ducking the arrow????:wink:

      Very nice – if you are up for it give us a little review of the performance and feel of the Rudderbow.

      I have about 75 arrows thru it

      I did the grip in just a thin suede but i dont feel any real hand shock which for a soild hickory bow is very good

      I got it set up quick played the nock alittle but she came into point of aim quick

      Its 65″ and pulls smooth 50#/28″ i draw 27″ so its throwing 47# or around there

      Fit and finish was excellent for a sub $100 bow i really have no complaints

      If i do my part it seems to do its part very well

      This was a project for small game hunting and i think it came out well

      I also have been using Rudders poplar flu flu arrows and 125grn field point which im very happy with,my Bear Black Bear seems to shoot them well also even being a 40# and arrows spined at 45/50#

      Over all for the money its a good piece of kit

      My cousin shot it yesterday with me and went home and ordered one

      That said he shoots 31″ draw and we saw noproblem with over draw down range

      Ill order another one for sure,might be a stave and ill try my hand at alittle tilling
