Up for auction, a 66” Jack Harrison Black Wolf Takedown longbow. The bow is 70#’s @ 28”, has the Harrison sleeved takedown, Black Glass, and what I would guess is a Rosewood Riser (but don’t hold me to wood species). The Bow was donated by author Don Thomas to the Traditional Bowhunters of Montana Banquet, where I won the auction. According to the information presented at the TBM banquet, Jack made this bow for Dr. Don for giving him a Heimlich maneuver and saving his life when he was choking at a banquet. I rate the bow a 9.5/10 structurally (only because it is not new) and 8/10 cosmetically. There are a few scuffs and scratches but nothing major. As anyone who has shot a Harrison bow can tell you, these bows are solid. Look at the pictures, if more are needed let me know. If you have questions post them here and I will answer anything I can, posting them here might save me numerous responses to the same question.

First Question: Did Don or Jack hunt with the bow?

Answer, from a portion of an email Don Thomas sent me regarding this bow:

"Walt—Good to hear from you. We are in Montana right now, after doing a lot of travel over the last few months. Good to be home, despite the gloomy weather.
I’m happy to help as much as I can, which may not be much. I received that bow from Jack in Alaska sometime around 1984. I have no paperwork on it whatsoever, and haven’t seen or heard from Jack in years. I did hunt with it, killed a few deer as I recall and have one picture of me with that bow and a cougar back in the day. It’s an old color print, and I don’t have a digital version. It eventually became one of a number of bows that I could not shoot comfortably because of shoulder problems."

I will cover shipping to whenever it is legal to ship.

The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.
