Martin--  I'm out in Oregon now, but guided from the thick woods of Wisconsin to the Sierras
of California (Cal has some of the best hunting I ever was involved with--- but I miss the
whitetails-- Oregon has whitetails, but tough to draw the tag)

At any rate, the Liberty One bow is just plain dandy.  I have been a magazine writer for more
than 20 years and I have a wall of bows that manufacturers have sent out (free) for years.  
The Liberty One is the first bow I have purchased after a field test.  Howard could not afford
to just give bows away to everyone, and I liked this bow enough to break my own rules and
purchase a field test product.  This bow is great for treestands, thick brush, and you can sit in
any blind and shoot without the limbs bucking against frame or fabric.  I shoot the big sage
country of both Oregon, Nevada and California, and this bow is perfect for the long open
shots also.  Every hunter that has picked up my bow and shot it, saw an instant improvement
on their arrow group size.  Always smaller!   The angle of the riser (handle) and the shoot
through, makes it unnecessary to have an arm guard on-  even with large, bulky cold weather
jackets.  Although I have been a great fan of the Hoyt 'slave cam' bows since they came out,
and the PSE Vengeance is a dandy also- I would recommend the Liberty One bow over
anything else on the market.  Period!  Very fast shooting, quiet (very), comfortable- no hand
shock shooting.  Nice flat arrow flight and tight groups.  Get past the obvious shock of how
tiny the bow looks, and it is certainly the heart of a killing beast.  Need any further
recommendation than that?  Here it is--- an Outdoor Writer spent money out of his own
pocket to buy one----whoooooooaaaa- now that is shocking.  

Bear claws were capped in silver by soldering a flat band in the dimention of the base of the
claw and then soldered onto another piece of flat silver to form an oblong cup of sorts.  Drill
through the side of the glued claw/cup with a very tiny drill bit from a "tip drill" set that is
available at a welding shop. You can also just drill through the keretin and bone of the claw
and string with beads.  The claws will hold up longer than we do.  Don't hesitate to contact
me with further questions on any matter.   Most humbly yours-- Frank Medicine Wolf Springer

Allow my introduction.  I am Outdoor Writer Frank Medicine Wolf Springer.  During the
season I guide buffalo hunts on the expansive Bar-YRanch in Central Oregon. I recently had
the pleasure to guide a young hunter who wished to use your bow on his hunt.  As I have
had a bow in my own hands for 51 years, I looked forward to fulfilling this hunter's desire to
kill a huge buffalo bull with the tiny bow.  I was able to put him in killing range and he placed
a fatal arrow, which transversed the entire body at a quartering angle and stopped only at
the thick hide on the off-shoulder.  Being prudent with these deadly beasts, I had him shoot a
follow up shot- which proved to be totally unnecessary. I wasimpressed as to both feel and
performance of your bow.  It certainly was up to the task of effectivly killing this buffalo bull.  
I am most
humbly yours; Frank Medicine Wolf Springer

Howard-  I wished to post you an additional photo of Brad's bull taken
with your bow.  In this view it looks small than some other photos, but
it was fully 1750 pounds and tough as any buffalo gets. It was a
pleasure to guide him on this hunt and I was very happy to be
involved in taking the largest American animal killed with your bow.
You certainly deserve grand accolades for the accomplishment of
manufacturing such a fine product.

Arrow sticking out of buffalo on buffalo hunt
Dear Liberty Archery,

Congratulations on making
one hell of a bow. Early this
fall a friend of mine drove 2
hours to order his Liberty 1.
When he got it he asked me
to set it up for him and try it
out. I usually keep up to date
with current technology and
was shooting a Bow Tech
just purchased in 06. He
wanted me to let him know if
it was up to snuff with my
Bow Tech. At first I looked at
it and thought it's cute but
didn't expect much from it. I
figured you'd have to give up
a lot in order to make a bow
that small and light. I WAS
MISTAKEN. The first shot
out of the Liberty 1 was all I
needed to start wanting one.
There were two friends with
me at the time and none of
us could believe how quick
and quite the bow was. I took
turns shooting the same
arrows from my bow and
then from the Liberty1. The
Liberty one was consistently
quiter and faster than mine
with no more hand shock and
that was with
out a stabilizer on it.
That was all it took. After
giving my buddy his bow
back I started on a mission to
get a local shop to become a
dealer. After a couple of
weeks it happened and I
ordered mine. I recieved it the
week before PA whitetail
archery season started so the
race was on to get
comfortable enough with it to
responsibly take it into the
woods. After a couple of
days, 50 or so shots, 2
busted arrow shafts and
countless vanes being
destroyed by stacking shots
on top of them I felt I could
comfortably hunt with it. I was
consistently smacking arrows
at 20 yards, putting them in a
snuff can at 30, and in 4-5"
groups at 50.
After hunting around my job
schedule I took time off and
worked around my hunting
schedule. It paid off! I passed
up 4 or 5 different bucks
waiting for a shot at one of
three that I had been
watching. On Nov 3rd it
happened. One of the three
picked up the scent trail I left
and followed it all too well
right to my stand. He stood
directly under the tree and
sniffed the climbing stick
when his rack hit it made a
nice "tink!!" it scared the hell
out of him and he bolted out
to 15 yards then slowed to a
walk. He was moving straight
away so I couldn't get a shot.
He walked to 20, then to 25.
he had no intention of
stopping or giving me a shot
so at 25 yards I grunted. He
stopped at 30 yards and
looked over his left shoulder.
Already at full draw, from
when he startled himself and
ran, I saw a window behind
his left rib and hit the release.
The arrow entered right right
where the 30 yard pin was
aimed for and exitted his right
shoulder. He ran less than 80
yards and dropped. He is my
widest spread buck to date.
His inside spread is 21" and
he is a 10 point. He hasn't
been scored yet but I'm
guessing right around 140.
His dressed weight was over
200 lbs. He is quite a trophy
and I'm glad I had the Liberty
1 to take him with.
Check out the pics I've
Thanks again for a GREAT

I shoot at least 5 times per
week. I have never shot this
bow and. I was a bit
skeptical, but was convinced
and sold my two there bows
(Matthews Drenaline & and
Oneida Eagle). This bow is
more accurate, lighter,
quieter, and smaller than any
other bow on the market.
There is no hand shock or
necessary. I back up this
statement by purchasing a
2nd liberty for my father with
the same results. I am in Fl
in the winter. Anyone who
wants to try this bow for
themselves, or just watch me
shoot it is welcome to come
over to the house. I read a
previous post that "you can
only use certain arrow rests
on this bow" this is not true. I
started with a Whisker
Biscut, changed to a
Hostage arrow rest by
Diamond archery, and now
shoot a full containment drop
away rest by Quality Archery
designs. All of them work
fine, as well as any other
arrow rest you want to put
on the bow. Some also say
"you need a special peep
sight" I use a Specialty
archery 37 degree standard
peep, it works fine. Some
say "you need a special
sight" It has a mounting
holes just like any other bow,
I have tried 3 different sights,
they all mount fine. Same
thing with hunting quiver.
The think that people don't
understand is that this is just
like any other bow, it's just
smaller, lighter, etc. You still
have the same draw length,
anchor point, you can use
sight, etc. as any other bow.
You don't have to worry
about this bow "blowing up"
or "coming apart" any more
often than a Hoyt or a
Matthews. If you can't shoot
accurate with this bow, you
simply should give up
archery. It is the most
accurate bow you will shoot
hands down.

I just got My new
Liberty the photo it is
next to my switchback
and My Allegiance
which are both short
bows! This thing is
tiny pulling it back the
first couple times. By
the third shot I was
hitting arrows! This is
the best I have ever
shot with a bow right
out of the box. It is
going to take a I just
got My new Liberty
little getting used to
and I am sure I will
shoot it better am sure
I will shoot it better
when I install a sling.
There was almost no
hand shock and when
I put a stabilizer on it,
the extra weight made
the bow easier to hold
and smoothed it right
out. This thing is way
to kool!!! ---Marc

Hi there,
Liberty 1 bow here in the
UK.  justice.  Superbly
engineered, kicks ass!

I am so excited by the look
and feel of the bow - what
a fantastic piece of kit.  I've
let off a few arrows in the
garden - so quiet and
deadly accurate.

Hutting by bow is not
allowed in the UK but it's
great in the field and really
draws some admiring

Well done - I'm very happy.

Please feel free to use me
as a reference here in the
UK if you have cause to
need a reference point.

Some time ago I talked to you and then introduced you to my son, Matt, (Offensive tackle for the New England Patriots)
for whom you later manufactured and set-up a bow. I was in Boston this weekend for a game and Matt and I had a chance
to do some hunting, but more importantly, I had a chance to shoot the bow. I must admit that it was far better than I expected
on accuracy and consistency. I would like to purchase a bow and all accessories as Matt's bow, except I would like a bow in
the 55-65 pound range set up at 60 pounds draw weight. Yes, I also shoot at 32-inch draw length.

I used to shoot demo archery for Fred Bear back in the 60's (flying targets), but I never would have expected to be able to
shoot pure
instinctive with your bow. I was pleasantly surprised that I could. Fred like you was a good engineer. Back in the days when
GM was deciding to use fiberglass springs on the Corvette, my brother Bob, who was an
engineering manager for Inland Division of GM, explained to GM that the technology required already was complete in
Fred's process at Grayling, MI. Fred gave the technology of linear spun glass to GM at no charge.

Again, I am extremely impressed with your engineering skill. Please send me a bill and a delivery date. I am getting older, so
hopefully the wait won't be too long.

Thanks, William C Light
comments = Howard.
I bought my liberty from you this past winter. I
am finally getting to shoot it outdoors and to
say it shoots well is an understatement.I
literally can not shoot two arrows at the same
target without ruining arrows, even at 40
yards.  Every time I look at my bow I am blown
away by your ability to think outside the box,
and make this jewel.I sure hope you are
successful in this venture.
Carl Jensen
comments = Fast unbelievably quite & most of all, the most awsome
bow ill probably ever shoot in my time! Thanks for a bow that fills like
it was made for me personally. All I can say is WOW! Clint Slatcoff,
Valparasio Indiana.
I love my Liberty bow!  I shoot with a inertia drop-away rest Vital Gear
HoloPino sight (you do not need a peep) and I found my bow likes stiff
heavy arrows.  They really quiet it down.  When I bought the rest the
archery shop owner’s son helped set the rest up with me ( I think he
just wanted to see it shoot).
 After 20 arrows I was hitting a quarter
size dot at 20 and 30 yards (broke 3 nocks).
 When I went back into
the shop area to pay for the rest the owner (a Mathews Dealer) (as he
held my bow) made several comments about the short piece of junk
(my bow) and it couldn’t shoot well.  His son told his Dad he better shut
up, because he just watched that junk
screem arrows into nickels at
30 yards.
 Several people were checking  the bow out before I left.  It
seems every time I take the bow out people want to see it shoot (they
think it’s a kids bow or a joke until they see how well it shoots.)  I know
a couple of people we bought a Liberty after they looked at mine, they
love theirs too.  Thanks for making a quality product.

comments = AWESOME! The one and only word
that can describe this uniquehunting instrument. At
first sight I went "WHAT?" I guess some of usold
hunters have certain concepts of what a hunting bow
should look like.his caused some apprehension on
my part, however, my local supplier
said to take it and try it. Two hours later I was back
in the store
closing the deal. Since then I have tuned and sighted
in both field pointsand broadheads. Great speed and
accuracy (some bows just won't give youboth) In fifty
years of hunting I've never carried anything so easily
through the woods and I'm hunting in some thick
Florida woods and swamps. My confidence level in
this equipment is higher than anything else
I've ever carried. The only problem I see is your
marketing efforts. Few hunters have ever seen or
heard of this bow. Although that may not be
aproblem for me because in the off hunting season I
shoot 3-D tournaments and I know this will give me
an advantage in that arena as we!ll. Once you start
an extensive marketing effort I'll surely lose that
advantage. Please keep me updated on any
upgrades (although I can't see and reason for any)
via e-mail.

comments = I saw your Liberty 1 bow today at an archery dealer in
Albany, NY. I have to admit, seeing it for the first time, I thought it to
be a promotional mock-up the dealer took it down and shot it. I have
to say it takes an awful lot to impress me. I am Impressed. You might
his draw and release is what made me realize, This bow is the next
step in the evolution of bow hunting.

This summer my son came over with a magazine to show me this big write-up
on some new radical bow. I read it and thought, hmmm, seems interesting. I
have always been one who liked to be different, and figured with the guarantee I
had nothing to lose. I figured I'd get this new Liberty thing and shoot it, and most
likely send it back, but at least I could tell people I tried it.

Well, I still have it, and it is amazing. Super light, amazing let off, super quiet,
and incredibly accurate. I can tell you right now that if you gave every beginning
archer one of your bows, you would have many lifetime archery addicts. This
Liberty I bow is absolutely wonderful. It is perfectly balanced, and very easy to
hold on target. My 40 yard groups are easily inside of 5 inches now, and my 50
yard groups are under 12 inches, and that is with very little practice. I don't get
much time to shoot.

I am so happy with how light this bow is and how easy it is to shoot very
consistently and accurately. I am leaving tomorrow to go archery elk hunting for
the first time. I am so confident with the Liberty I, that I know if I get a shot inside
of 50 yards I will have an elk this archery season. My son is right handed, and
he shot my bow the other day and couldn't believe it shooting opposite handed!
He is planning on ordering one as soon as he can save the cash.

One other thing, I took it to the local pro shop with me the other day and I
couldn't get out of there. Everyone wanted to look at it, draw it, watch me shoot
it. It was rediculous. Most people hadn't ever seen it, but some had seen it in a
magazine. One of the local well known archers said I should set up a stand and
start selling them! I told him I wouldn't need to be much of a salesman, these
bows would sell themselves if people just had one here to test out.

The price is well worth the performance and the great advantage of having a
super short and light bow. (cheaper than a lot of other top bows out there!) I'll
probably be ordering another for a backup, I don't think I'll ever want to shoot
any other bow.
