A lifelong commitment to archery.
I am a lifelong resident of beautiful Dahlonega, Georgia, sight of America’s first gold rush in 1828. Dahlonega sits at the southern tip of the Appalachian Mountains. As a boy, I made my own bows out of hickory and arrows from sourwood sprouts. As I grew older and my archery skill improved, I purchased a Ben Pearson Hunter recurve bow and killed my first deer at age 15. My friends and I would practice for hours after school and on the weekends. Sunday afternoons we were in watched Curt Gowdy and “The American Sportsman” show, hoping it would feature Fred Bear.
I always had a love of the outdoors and worked for the U.S. Forest Service thirty-one years. Having owned a number of bows, Pearson, Bear, Wing, and finally custom-built bows by Black Widow and Bob Morrison, I decided to build one of my own. I wanted a short riser with a long working limb. By building a shorter riser and longer working limbs the result is a smooth drawing, hard-hitting bow with no stack. Drop Tine Custom Bows was born, known for their stunning beauty and great performance.
All bows are built by hand, one at a time to the customers’ requirements making them truly custom.
