Made in the USA, the SAS Scout Compact Takedown Survival Bow is the smaller brother of the Ranger Compact Takedown Survival Bow. Designed by experienced engineers who have designed it to withstand many decades of use, this is one of the fastest deploying compact bows on the market. Unlike its bigger brother it does not stores takedown arrows inside the riser. This option allows for a more rounded grip and is meant for users who either shoot full length arrows or are storing takedown arrows elsewhere in greater number anyways. Both the Scout and the Ranger bows use a push style longbow grip, so they are comfortable, but the Scout's grip is more comfortable to carry.

Converting from left to right hand by simply flipping the limbs around and restringing and the fact that no special tools are required for operation and maintenance, makes this bow easy to use when shared between multiple archers or unit members. Also capable of accepting accessories such as sights, quivers and screw in arrow rests, look no further than theScout for a compact and accurate weapon for your backpack.

(Note: New archers should err on the side of caution and choose lower poundage bows - 55# bows are definitely not recommended for new archers and we have numerous new customers requesting to purchase lighter limbs shortly after the purchase of our 55# bows. A 55# bow is equivalent to about a 70# compound bow in perceived draw effort as you hold the full 55# at your anchor point.). The lowest legal poundage (and possibly 5# upward of that) for hunting in your area is generally recommended if you are a new archer. You will be better able to develop proper form and will be more accurate.
