We install and service all of the accessories we sell.

We can also arranged contacts for taxidermists, guides and outfitters in this area. If you need advice on equipment selection, hunting strategies or just want to talk archery, we do that too!!

At Big Timber we provide the one on one attention that all customers deserve. We like to take the time to explain, discuss, or demonstrate the little things that people want to ask but sometimes feel they shouldn’t. At our shop, there’s no sales pressure. We know that choosing the right equipment is not an easy task, so we encourage you to try it out before purchasing. We have an in-store shooting lane that you can use in order to get the feel of the bow – very important when buying archery equipment.

These are some critical things to consider when buying archery equipment:

  • The “feel” of the bow when you handle it or hold it
  • The draw cycle: how smooth does the bow draw
  • The release cycle: what does the bow feel like when you release the arrow – hand shock, vibration, balance
  • Does the bow fit you: correct draw length, correct draw weight

You can’t get this information without shooting the bow first!  “Try before you buy!”
