When it comes to backing a bow or stiffening a riser, you simply can't beat Fiberglass. The Fiberglass backed maple limbs of the Martin Hunter provides exceptional consistency shot after shot. You wouldn't expect a youth bow to shoot this good.
The Martin Hunter Recurve Bow has carved out a legendary reputation among traditional archery enthusiasts. First manufactured over 50 years ago, the design of Damon Howatt's "Hunter" remains largely unchanged. Needless to say, this is one tradition worth holding onto. While the availability of exotic woods has resulted in variations of aesthetics, the core of what makes a Hunter remains unaltered.
From the first time we picked a Martin Hunter up and shot it, it became obvious that there's something special about this design. The bow becomes an extension of your arm. Martin Archery's Hunter Recurve isn't mass-manufactured and it really shows. These bows are built by hand, one at a time, by someone who cares. If you want to see what goes into making one of these beautiful bows click here for a peek!
The Hunter is among the fastest recurves you will find, offering impressive speed without sacrificing brace height. With cores of eastern hard maple, the Hunter's limbs are designed to store great energy while allowing a smooth, stack-free draw. The riser is shaped from Shedua with a broad beam of Bubinga through the center. This smooth drawing, fast shooting Hunter will hit the mark with serious bowhunters, and should receive serious attention from those with longer than average draw lengths.
Of course, we've loaded the Martin Hunter Recurve Traditional Recurve Bow Package with everything you need to get started: rest, quiver, arrows, arm guard, field points, your choice of a glove or tab, and all the other little trimmings to take the guesswork out and get you on the range. We take it all the way from setting the initial brace-height to final tuning so that this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. All you have to do is string it up and hit the range. Stock of these awesome recurve bows can dry up in a blink. Get yours while they're still available!
|Hard Rock Maple
When it comes to bow materials, Hard Rock Maple is pretty hard to beat. The Martin Hunter's black-dyed rock maple riser combines the warmth and feel of real wood with toughness exceeding some modern materials. This is the best of the best for beginner traditional bows.
We take the guess-work out of your setup so that you can spend less time tinkering and more time shooting. Every bow is set-up, tested, and fired 50-60 times to ensure the best combination of brace height, tip weight, and arrow spine.

|BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
Each bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The brace height is carefully set and tested, the nocking point is crimped on, arrows are tested based on your draw length, draw weight, and release style. Any hardware is carefully installed and carefully adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to match the ideal setup for your configuration. Finally, the string is waxed and the bow wiped down. Each bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws or damage. If the bow isn't up to standards, it doesn't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is carefully tuned by one of our staff shooters to ensure the earliest possible arrow stabilization . Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow flies clean and true, indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean minimum-contact launch. Be advised that additional tweaking may be required as traditional bows are extremely sensitive to individual shooting form.
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes an exact fit for your shooting form difficult to achieve, we are certain that you won't find anyone who performs a cleaner out-of-the-box tune on traditional equipment. Only minimal fine-tuning for your individual form should be required.s
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
