Mr. Jacobson,

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy the bow you made for me. Ever since I purchased it, my shooting skills have improved. I have to confess, I put it down for a day, and shot a couple of my other bows. I have to say that your bow out performs the others HANDS DOWN! Your bow is quieter, faster, and has little stacking. I love it. Thank you very much. I just wanted to inform you that I harvested a giz with it on September 2nd and my moose on September 17. Here is a picture of my moose. Thanks again.

I am the guy that just bought two of your bows, through Dustin, Here in Whtehall. Let me exp;ain something. I am a traditional bow collector and I own over sixty bows, with only 20% of those mass production bows. All the rest are from custom bowyers. With that said, you should know that I am no stranger to shooting them all and it is a joke with the local traditonal club as to what bow I will show up with for our friday evening get togethers. I have been known to shoot three different bows over the course of the evening.

Well tonight I shot the take down long bow I got from you. A full twenty eight targets and in the pouring rain. A few of my long time archery friends were with me as well as Dustin. Getting to the point, I got this bow at 1:30 in the afternoon, shot it at the shop about ten arrows worth, and then just jumped into the eveing shoot with a strange bow. In the rain I shot very well, in fact damn well, and I have to admit that although I am not easily impressed by any particular bow....I was with yours....It shot fast, forgiving to very wet feathers, and to a hastly thrown togther batch of ash and maple arrows that really aren't exactly matched to this bow. My congratulations on your bows for their beauty and craftmanship, their ease and comfort to shoot. and especially this bow's performance. (in adverse weather). You sir, build one fine bow and I will highly recommend you to anyone I shoot with or hunt with. Feel free to use me for refference as to the quality of your bows.

By the way, the other bow I bought, the purheart recorve, is now my wife's and she loves it as much as I love the long bow.

"I have been shooting both a Bears Paw longbow and recurve for several years now. I love them! Neil Jacobson is truly one of the finest bowyers in the world. Neil's Bears Paw bows are outstanding. They are beautifully crafted one bow at a time. My Bears Paw bows are extremely shootable, they are fast, smooth and hard hitting. I normally shoot very heavy bows in the 70' and 80 lb range. What I really notice about Neils bows is how smoothly and easily they pull even at the high weights I prefer. I consider Neil to be a good friend and hunting partner. I highly reccommend a Bears Paw bow to anyone interested in owning one of the best traditional bows available today!"

I have known Neil ever since he started grinding laminations to build bows. Got some of the first bows that he ever built and I am still shooting his bows to this day. I remember talking to Neil on numerous occasions about his bows and what type of design etc. he had in mind for his bows; his idea of what a bow should be like, shoot like, feel like.... his own personal signature if you will.... on his bows. I clearly remember that he stated that he did not want to try to build the fastest bow in the world " however, his bows are extremely fast" , he wanted to put his efforts and design ability into producing a very accurate, stable, quite bow designed for the hunting archer first and foremost. So, I can honestly say after owning and shooting most of his bows thru the years that he has achieved his initial goals. I have owned alot of bows the last 25 and Neils bows are in the top two recurves I have ever owned. Let me add here that if you are considering a new recurve from Neil to do your self a favor and check out one of his finger grip contoured risers. You will be very pleased. Another thing his grip has helped me with is enabling me to shoot a bit stiffer weight and still achieve total control with my bow arm. If you have release problems like I have fought for years you might consider going up in bow weight a few pounds. With Neils riser I truly believe you will be able to control the weight and forget about your release. I know it has worked for me. Thanks again Neil for a tremendous bow. Sincerely, Butch Wilks

Deer MAster-Bower Niel,

WOW!...Once again,the masterpiece/one-of-a-kind ,longbow you artfully created,preformed as it was meant to..2nd shot at 10 yards...thru the heart...on this superb 6x6 bull that came into my wallow/mineral lick at 9:10 A.M. on sept 11,2006...He had about 30 cows with him. He came in a,bugling and swinging his head/rack back and forth..Ewe know the "drill"! I don,t even remember getting off the 2nd shot,all I remember was seeing him spin to the right after my first shot over-shot him ( I had put on a new/higher rest and forgot to move my "dental" floss up abit ) and seeing a white-fletched arrow appear where his heart laid,low in his chest.It was truly "magical"....Thanks for all the memories that you helped create! Celebrate Life...with Graditude! ...Go Elk hunting!

Dr. Chuck Williams
