Autumn Gold Shrew
Osage Orange is an almost magical wood with a well-earned reputation as being one of the best-of-the-best bow woods available anywhere! Osage has a rich archery history in North America as one of the most reliable and hardest-hitting bow woods ever known. It’s famous for its beautiful colors and unique appearance. Osage darkens with age, the bright golden amber hues changing over time to deep rich ochres and umber browns that sometimes offer deep contrasts similar to tiger eye gemstones. Osage is strong, consistent, reliable, durable, and adds power to limbs providing faster arrow speeds and deeper penetration. For that reason, we don’t just use super thin veneer strips of Osage for its beautiful colors in these bows, we use actual laminations on the back and the belly to take advantage of the superior cast offered by Osage. Then, in the inner core, we use our lightweight high-performance Super Flex bamboo laminations. We have found that this balanced combination of Osage and bamboo results in some of the most powerful limbs of any bows in the Shrew Bow lineup. Due to the special characteristics of the Osage, each Autumn Gold Shrew is a unique one-of-a-kind bow that will impress you with its extraordinary performance, its distinct beautiful colors, and will become a trusted companion for all your target shooting or bowhunting.

We recommend our Shrew Whisper String for all of our Shrew Bows and all other traditional bows that can be shot with high-performance, low-stretch bowstrings. Don`t forget to order right away an extra string!
When choosing your bowstring, please note that due to the slim limbs for all Shrew Bows (Classic Hunter II, Super Shrew II, Lil Favorite) a Shrew Whisper String for Longbows is required. All Shrew Bows are built according to the ATA string length standard (String length = Bow length – 3″)

Ray Lyon –
I have a Shrew Classic Hunter II in the Autumn Gold configuration. I also have the Great Northern Shrew quiver and Partizan arrows produced by Henry Bodnik. Together these make as fine of a hunting rig setup as I’ve ever shot. The bow came ready to shoot out of the box, as it included string silencers and a nock point all set up to shoot. The quiver is solid, quiet and holds the arrows firmly, yet easily removed for the shot. The grip of the Shrew bows are comfortable and more importantly give you consistent hand placement for every shot. The bow is smooth drawing and well behaved in the hand after the release. All of this makes accurate shots easily obtainable. The 54” compact length is very nice for tight quarters hunting situations and the super quiet shot is fabulous. This bow is stunningly beautiful as a bonus. Congratulations on crafting a fine product gentlemen. I highly recommend it to the discerning archer!!
