    I don’t know of anyone around the OKC metro but if you called H&H Shooting Sports https://www.hhshootingsports.com/shop/ they have an extensive archery department and even hold archery tournaments. I’m sure they could guide you in the right direction.

    Making a longbow (and even laminated reflex/deflex if you're handy) is a fairly straight forward process with a few tools and some spare time. Can even make your own flemish twist jig and strings with minimal effort. Youtube is a gold mine for great tutorials. Of course, spare time is the limiting factor for most of us.

    To answer your question directly, Archery Traditions of Oklahoma is a great archery shop and indoor range in Yukon, OK that occasionally has custom made recurves.

    Thanks for all the information guys. Turns out there's a bow making class here in Okmulgee at the tribal complex. It starts with picking the tree all the way to finishing your bow and making arrows. It's a free class if anyone is interested. The contact info is John Brown 918-549-2435 with Cultural Preservation.

    I make long bows. I've got some oak bow staves ready to go.
