The Whistler

The Hoary Marmot, often called a "Whistler" for the whistle they make to alarm each other.
Here a "Whistler" watches over his high country home in Glacier National Park where Dan spent many summers working with his family as a boy.

The "Whistler" longbow
   Toelke Traditional Archery has always tried to cater to archers of all draw lengths. Since the introduction of the Pika we have had many requests for a longer Pika type longbow. 

   We are proud to announce the "Whistler" reflex deflex longbow. It is now offered in a 58 inch to accommodate up to 30.5 inch draw lengths and 60 inch for archers pulling up to 32 inches! The "Whistler" has proved to be smooth drawing, quiet, soft in the hand as well as being forgiving and easy to shoot. We are very excited to add it to our great line and are now taking orders on one piece and two piece take down bows. $825 for the one piece, $1075 for a T/D

The Whistler design allowed us to create a grip just like the Pika's

Our bows are known for the silence that comes after the shot and the lack of shock in the hand.  A smooth draw that offers ease and comfort shot after shot. Forgiveness of small shooter errors and comfortable grip that places the hand where it needs to be. 
The Pika puts these factors into a 54" or 56" package that is wildly handy in the field.

Whip R/D Longbow


Since its introduction nearly 14 years ago the Whip has remained our #1 selling bow.
Regarded as one of the smoothest, quietest, most forgiving longbows on the market there's no question why.  Time tested performance from the back yard to the field and on target ranges.
Fit, finnish and customer service, the Whip is for everyone.

Linen Micarta

    We have been using linen micarta for years now in our two piece bows. Recently it has become a popular option in one piece bows as well. Linen micarta is heavy, tough and lets be honest, we make it look good! 
   We use hardwood accents to complement the black micarta and your limb veneers.
