Ron LaClair "Over 75 Years Behind The Bow" audio book

I've known Ron for a number of years. Was introduced to him by Brian Cole when my son Smith was just a tot. He's been a friend and mentor and I have learned much from him. I have a number of Shrew bows...my first trad bow was a Super Shrew. Good memories...Smith and I have two sets of father/son Shrews. In fact, our first set was the only authorized Shrew Limited clone that I won in a Bowsite auction. It was made by Carl Miller (Plywood Bender) with donated materials from Ron. Even the matching knife was made.

Ron is a bear of a man with a great smile and wonderful laugh. Some of his poems and yarns can be found at the link. Enjoy.

AnnonyMouse - One of Ron's bows was high on my list that time I hooked up with you in Kalamazoo. But there was a problem. His booth was always so busy I never got to talk with him or shoot any of his bows. My loss.

I also remember when Brian was a moderator on the BS. I still think he was the best moderator the BS had.

I have a Trad Bow that I won in 2014. It is a custom made Pronghorn that was built by a Bowyer named Herb Meland. It's 62" 57# 28" draw. I haven't even shot it yet but I want to try it out. I have purchased some wooden arrows but that is as far as I have gotten. My son keeps asking me to give it to him. It is valued at $1,000.
