Live Oak Archery!

If you’ve not heard, Sullivan’s Outfitters is now Live Oak Archery (located here). Talking to Live Oak owner Jeff Tolson and the bowtechs there has been very encouraging. They want to support 4-H and JOAD archery and want to work more with our club. Though there are many good archery shops in the region, I think it’s safe to say that Live Oak is our go-to local shop. If you make a trip to Live Oak, let them know you are part of our club and that you appreciate their support.

I have a friend trying to sell his recurve setup so he can get into compond. The following is what he is selling.

The riser is a “Hoyt Aerotec RH 23”

The limbs are a “Hoyt 550 carbon/wood 32# long”

this is everything else:
Cartell sight
cavalier clicker
7 ACG’s (spine 660)
2 cartel 11″ side rods
cartel extender
cartel V Bar
Cartell 30″ long rod(all the cartel stabilizer stuff matches.)
and Aurora Bowcase(the red backpack)
