youth are not toys, but a lethal piece of archery equipment that
will propel an arrow capable of doing potential damage and
should be used only with adult supervision. For those that will
be new to archery, the archery experience can turn into a
lifetime of fun and recreation.

Since the 1970's, Chuck Jones of
Okaw Valley Bows LLC has produced fine custom bows for
traditional archers. Over the years, meeting families at trade
shows and archery competitions, he saw there was a
need for good quality traditional archery equipment for the
Their interest in traditional
archery and the desire to introduce the younger generation
(which included his grandchildren) to the sport influenced his interest in the Black Rhino longbow. This
line of bows was developed, tested and then marketed in the
year 2000 by Joe and Janice Furlong with great success.
Joe and Janice went on to other things including making the
worlds best broadhead!
http://www.vintagearcheryco.com/ In 2003, Chuck began helping to build
these fine bows. Since the early beginnings Black Rhino
archery equipment has found homes not only in the U.S.A, where
it is manufactured, but also throughout the world.
Okaw Valley Bows LLC, took over the operation of Black Rhino Bows in early
2005. We have added more bow models to our line to better
serve the needs of archers. Improvement in the quality and
performance of our products is a never ending goal.
Traditional archery is a great sport
whether a person is interested in target shooting or is
involved in traditional bow hunting and is a family sport that
can be shared by all members. Through traditional archery,
young archers learn disciplines that will continue through
their adult life.
Longbow archery has a history that
can be traced for hundreds of years. Over that time it has not
changed significantly. The longbow simplicity may be part of
its mystique and allure. While materials and construction
methods continually change the longbow still remains just a
stick and string!
Okaw Valley Bows LLC encourages all
newcomers to the sport of traditional archery and hope that
Black Rhino equipment will make their entry into the world of
archery easy and enjoyable. back
