Riley Savage of Hillsboro Oregon and owner of Archery Past got a complete pass through on both the Kudu and the Wildebeest with a Shurewood Shafts tipped with an Eclipse Broadhead.  Neither animal went more than one hundred yards.  His bow was made by his Dad, Surewood Shafts' Steve.  The camp that they were hunting in South Africa can be seen at Grootplaats Bowhunting Safari's.  This was one of the first traditional kills in this camp.  The Kudu Bull measured about 50" which is equivalent to a 300 P & Y bull elk.
Congratulation Riley.

Hey Steve, check it out. Pig #1 for 2015. I stained these Surewoods Shafts to match my Toelke.  They are really great shafts.
Doug fir shafting is top notch!

Thanks, Dendy Cromer from GA.

Steve!   Look what I got! My very first turkey EVER.   My brother called him to within twelve yards of us and I thumped him with a Surewood Hunter.

Have a Great day, Dendy Cromer from GA.

John Kauss took this spring gobbler with a Kaiser Custom arrow made from a Surewood shaft. The finest raw shafting available today. Keep up the good work guys.

Got him after work in the cutblock behind my house.  Still got a few arrows left of the last batch I bought and putting them to use.

Steve, I found another pig that is allergic to fir!  We had another awesome hunt this past week, when are you coming down?

Take care, Dendy Cromer down in GA.

Got some venison to go along with the Pork.  Well guys, the combination of JD Berry “Morningstar” longbow, Surewood Shafts and Grizzly broadheads has me starting off to an unbelievable 2015-2016 season. I got these two this evening, Thanks again for the great products and service.

Surewood Shafts Photos 2015 Hi Steve, Bob, and Rourke,

Your fine Surewood Shafts have done it again. This year I have had your Surewood Shafts fly through a deer in Nevada, a deer in SE Oregon, and a spike elk in NE Oregon.  Both the SE Oregon deer and the Spike elk were single shot pass-thru’s and they lasted less than 10 seconds before expiring.  Your arrows fly straight and true.  Thank you for making a great shaft!
Oh, for specs, these were shot out of a 61# Blacktail recurve, 145 gr Eclipse Broadhead, Surewood Shafting.
All shots were 20 yards or less.

Hey Steve!  I had a pretty good opening day here in GA.  I put two of your Surewood Shafts in the air and ended up with a nice buck and doe.
Thanks for the fine shafts!

Bob and Steve, thought you’d enjoy this picture of the bull that I killed this year with a Surewood Shaft.  I got him at about 4 feet (from my bow to the elk).   Watched him go down within 100 yards. Hunting in Eagle Cap Wilderness.  Was fortunate to have friends, mules, and my horse to get him out.  I’m still not able to lift much due to my medical condition. Please pass on to Rourke. Thanks.

Nothing beats the Surewood and Grizzly Combination.  Steve and Bill, I can't tell you enough, how effective the Surewood/Grizzly combination has been for me.  All I can say is a big “THANK YOU!”

Surewood Shafts, Wilderness Custom Arrows and Eclipse Broadhead continue to be a great combination. I used a Liberty Bows 50# Classic to harvest this late season Blacktail.

Hey Bob.  Shot this guy at about 15 yards with a Zwickey and Surewood Shaft, perfect heart shot and he went about thirty yards after I poked him.  Its all on film too!

This evening I took my 20th traditional big game with my JD Berry “Vixen”, Surewood Shaft with Badger Broadhead up front.  I can always count on my Surewood Shafts to get the job done.  Thanks for all you guys do to produce an awesome product.

Hey guys!
Thought the whole hunting season was going to pass me by without ever getting to let an arrow fly at an animal.  I finally got a shot opportunity this Saturday at a small buck and made it happen.  Hope you guys had a great season in 2015. Merry Christmas and here's to a healthy, prosperous 2016!

I just thought I'd share with you the Wisconsin gobbler I took this morning with my Bear 59' er 45# recurve, Surewood 45-50# Premiums and Zwickey Eskimos. The arrow blew through the wing bones and lodged in the offside slightly forward. My buddy and camera man Kyle and I caught up to him in the swamp under a blow down.
Thanks guys at Surewood!

Finally drew the coveted tag.  I shot this bull on opening day a few miles into the Wenaha Wilderness (Oregon side).  Greg Bogh called this bull into four steps, then I shot him at 20 yards.  Ron French made the Surewood Shafted arrows with Dave Smith's donated turkey feathers. Some real mojo in that arrow I shot!
The bull is an 8x7 and scores 352" gross.
Oh, and I used a Norm Johnson Blacktail bow with Abowyer heads.

Couldn't be more thrilled.

Howdy Bob, Steve, and Rourke!

While sitting in a treestand over a wallow on Sept. 8th, had this 6 point bull come in at 5:05pm.  Using my Blacktail Bow, self made arrows from Surewood Shafts, and Wensel Woodsman heads...I made the 8-9 yard shot through both lungs. The bull went 30 yards and stopped, then simply fell over as I watched.

Thanks for a superior shaft guys!

Hello guys!

Just wanted to first say thanks for rekindling (pun intended) my love of good wood arrows.  I built some really fine hunting arrows for my solo hunt in Alaska this year.  On day 12 of my 15 days luck finally found me.  I killed this bull with one shaft from my longbow.  The shot distance was 4 feet...the closest shot I've ever made on any game animal in 40+ years of hunting.  Sincere appreciation for providing me with the best wood shafts I've ever used.

Hey Steve! I hope ya’ll are doing well.  I Wanted to show this guy off.  After watching him chase a doe for over twenty minutes, he finally gave me a shot that I couldn’t turn down.  My Surewood Shaft did the trick again!

I was able to take my first traditional animal with a Surewood Shaft this Christmas Eve.  I've ordered a few dozen shafts through you guys over the last couple years and have been 100% satisfied.   This doe was taken with a 11/32 shaft, custom by Ron French.  I used a 1967 Blackwidow and a 190gr Cutthroat Broadhead.
Happy new year and happy hunting.

Hi Bob,
I just placed a shaft order and thought I would share my first buck with a traditional bow.  Took him on Nov. 10 with a pass through shot using one very special Surewood arrow that I made myself.  I have retired that arrow and need to make some more!  Thanks for the best wood shafting on the market. Oh, and that stuff wrapped in his antlers is temporary polywire fencing, apparently he wasn't paying attention when he crossed a divided pasture.
Thanks again and Happy New Year.
