Uploaded on 8 June, 2017

Jack Cramer, 77, of Gold Canyon, Arizona, was never told how to build and shoot with bows, yet after 30 years of doing so, he is making some of the most beautiful and high performance bows sought after by top shooters who appreciate the engineering and the beauty of his bows. This film gives a glimpse of a passionate, dedicated man for his craft who nonetheless keeps a perspective with what life throws at him and knows what is truly important.

Absolutely marvelous!! Thank you for sharing this story.

Dear Mr. Cramer,
You are a true Robin Hood with an amazing gift for the art of bow making. How can one order one of your amazing bows? I remember my archery class in high school being the one thing sport that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Suzanne Bird

Mr. Cramer is an amazing bow artist. I wonder if he should be dubbed the Robin Hood of the Superstitions instead of Sherwood Forest? Please tell me how one contacts him to place an order?

Sincerely,
Mrs. Suzanne Bird (who always wanted to be like Robin Hood
and not Maid Marion)

I am a recurve shooter and have a custom bow made by Brackenbury Custom Bows out of Washington and would like to know how I could get my hands on one of Jacks beautiful looking bows.

What brand and model of spindle sander is Mr. Cramer using in the video and does he like it?

Thanks, Art
