Buck Trail 60" Antelope RecurveItem Number: 87901X
Like the swift, majestic creature for which it is named, the 60" Buck Trail Antelope Recurve Bow will inspire you with its beauty.
It is called the "Antelope" because of its matchless speed, and the elegant curve of the deflex limbs, reminiscent of the antelope's gently curving horns. The Antelope is a lightweight bow that packs a lot of power at a great price.
Riser: Constructed from walnut with Dymondwood laminations. The radiused shelf is cut-past-center with rug rest installed. Side plate sold separately. The forward riser design makes the Antelope inherently more stable and forgiving, while decreasing stacking and finger pinch for longer draw lengths.
Limbs: Maple limbs surrounded by black fiberglass.
Bow String: Flemish Dyneema.
Available in right or left handed in pull weights of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 40, and 55#@ 28" draw. Please specify.

Choose from a left or right handed bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.
Minimum Arrow Weight - Do not shoot an arrow weighing less than eight grains for every pound of peak draw weight. For example: If your bow's peak weight is 40 pounds at your 30" draw length, do not shoot an arrow weighing less than 320 grains total arrow weight (40# x 8 gpp = 320 grains). Shooting an arrow below eight grains per pound (gpp) can cause damage to your bow similar to dry firing and possible injury to the shooter or others nearby. Damage caused by shooting an arrow that is too light will damage the bow and will not be covered under warranty by 3Rivers Archery or bow manufacturer.
