    About Us

    Rick Welch knows bows. Throughout the last decade Rick has won 50 U.S. & World Championships, plus multiple state championships exclusively using bows of his own design. Besides being a devoted family man he is also a world renowned traditional archery shooting instructor.

    CUSTOM PRO HUNTER RECURVE

    Rick has designed this bow with four characteristics in mind: Smooth draw, Quiet, High Performance, and Very Forgiving.If you are looking for maximum performance in a recurve bow,you have found it.



    Base price for the Dakota Pro Hunter is $1,200.00. This model will have a carbonized core in the limbs, which greatly optimizes limb recovery, and increases speed.


    Dakota Recurve stats are as follows:


    * 50lbs draw weight


    * 30" draw


    200 FPS.


    * 400 grain arrow


    * Stack- 2-lbs per inch

      


    * Length 58"-61"-64"

    CUSTOM PRO HUNTER LONGBOW

    Unlike the one piece longbow, the Dakota Pro Hunter Longbow is a three piece take-down model. This unique bow was  built for those who had the desire to shoot a longbow but at the same time didn't like the performance, as well as dealing with hand shock, and not enough mass to hold the bow still at full draw. With the Dakota Longbow you will no longer have to deal with the lack of control of the old style longbow. The innovative design of the Dakota Longbow puts just the right amount of mass weight in your hand for a rock solid draw, and a controlled release. With the Dakota Longbow you get the best of both worlds, a smooth draw, virtually no hand shock, whisper quiet, and the most forgiving bow you'll ever shoot. 



    Base price for the Dakota Pro Hunter Longbow is $1200.00 This model will have a carbonized core in the limbs, which greatly optimizes limb recovery, and increases speed.



    DAKOTA LONGBOW STATS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

    DAKOTA BOWS RISERS

     


    * Our risers are designed and engineered with the concept of being more accurate and less critical to shoot, while being extremely comfortable in the hand.

    * We recommend a moderate brace height to allow for more arm clearance during the shot.

    * The shelf is cut 1/8" past center and designed to provide the least amount of resistance, and the maximum clearance needed for clean arrow flight.

    * All Dakota bows are designed to have take-down capability. Designed and built to put at ease the minds of those who are hesitant of purchasing a take down bow. Our take down bows have as much constructional intergity as any one piece bow.

    Advantages of a take-down designed bow over a one piece designed bow are:

    * Over all mass weight of the bow, which makes for a more consistent shooting bow.

    * The ability to purchase interchangeable limbs of different draw weights, as opposed to having to purchase an entirely new bow.

    DAKOTA BOWS WARRANTY

    ANY ALTERATION TO THE ORIGIONAL CONSTRUCTION/DESIGN TO ANY DAKOTA BOW, AUTOMATICALLY VOIDS WARRANTY

     1 Year warranty on materials and craftsmanship.


    To avoid any damage to your Dakota Custom Bow follow the steps listed below, and maintain proper tune of the bow.


    * Never leave your bow in a vehicle during the summer months. This can cause the limbs to come unglued.


    * Never hang your bow on a hook, while it is strung. This can cause a twist in the limbs.


    * Never store your bow strung or leaning against a wall. This can cause a twist in the limbs.


    * Always use a proper bow stringer to string and unstring your bow. A proper bow stringer will have the following components: A boot on one end, and a rubber limb pad on the other end. Follow bow stringer manufacturer's instructions. This will avoid limb twist.


    * Never ever dry fire your bow!
