The New Horseman Model of bow here at HuntPrimitive is both a more Primitive yet Artisanal version of the popular SpeedGoat Models. Themed after the iconic horsebow, this bow is not just for hunting on horseback. It is a powerful and formidable hunting implement and can be build to take down the largest of North American Game whether in a tree, spot & stalk, or yes, even on horseback! The Horseman is a shorter rawhide backed osage bow with the classic gullwing shape for both fashion and function.
Traditionally this style of bow was quite short and drawn and shot with a very short draw. This model is meant for a 24″ max draw length
Simply put, there are strict limitations as to how far short bows can be drawn and must never be drawn passed their marked draw length of 24″ so do keep that in mind when ordering. These come in around 52-54″ long
Grips are wrapped in Braintan leather and have no arrowshelf. These are specifically designed to shoot off knuckle.
The Horseman model aesthetically features snake skins of your choosing, Red dyed tips, white dot work along the sides of the limbs, a Rawhide wrapped handle with no arrow shelf, and a simulated rawhide string that is cordage twisted along its entire length. The only customize-able features of this bow are the snake skin, approximate poundage, and draw length/bow length ratio. As with all my custom bows, this one comes with the turquoise inlay arrowhead makers mark, which also signifies it is part of my lifetime series of bows with the absolute best warranty in the business!
Note: While we do not apply the horsehair tufts here in the shop because of damage during shipping, if you would like to add your own horsehair tuft upon arrival, just leave a note during checkout that you would like to have a horsehair flute channel carved into the upper tip of your bow. If “None” for snake skins is selected, it will be left the natural rawhide on the back. If you have a snake skin you would like to use, or a skin that is not currently listed on the selection field, ie: bullsnake, or red rat snake..etc.. feel free to email your questions and concerns to email@example.com Email is the best way to get a hold of Ryan Gill.
