I thinks there is one up that way, but not sure where at. One of the best around is about 5 mi outside Bloomfield, that would be abouta 1 hr drive for you. Hoyt, Mathews Ross and PSE Dealer with 18indoor lanes. Full service proshop. Great folks to deal with
Tom Rothrock is doing business as "Lonesome Elk Archery".
In case you don't know, Tom owned the Wilderness shop in Terre Huate for many years. He closed it in about 94 or 95. He ended up selling so many bows out of his garage at the house that it became a business again. No retirement for Tom! I think anyone who has met or done business with Tom will tell you that he is one of the most knowledgeable bow mechanics in the country.

The only trouble Tom has with any bow companies is that he can't get their bows fast enough.. They are out the door set up and ready to shoot faster than they can ship them to him.. Again, great service and excellent selection.
Had the pleasure of visiting with Tom one afternoon. He gave me a tour of the home place and he has some really nice animals that he and his wife have put together. I think he told me they take about a month in the late fall to do their hunting and so the shop is closed then. He also said his wife is the better hunter of the two.
I believe he is also certified as a Pope and Young measurer.
Haven't heard anything about him having problems with the manufacturers, unless they think he should put up a fancy new building.

Can you point me toward the target, please?
Do you have any FACTS to back that up or do you just like to flap your jaws?
I'll be sure Tom sees this. With a little luck maybe he'll sue you for slander.
I just met Tom Rothrock last Saturday. Don't known a damn thing about this finances or his relationships with bow companys, but I'll tell you this...he was personable, very helpful, and very nice to this stranger. Tom took the time to show me his shop, even invited me into his home to show off his wife's trophies. In fact, Tom took the time to research a problem I've had with my AM32, and then went the extra mile to look me up later and tell me what he had found out. All this for a guy who didn't, and never has, spent a dime in his shop. I spent about an hour with Tom on Saturday, wish I could have stayed all day. Anyone within a couple hours drive of Terre Haute should check out Toms shop.
I had not seen Tom for years and wasn't aware that he had a shop again until recently. I went over today to his shop and it was so good to see Tom again.He's not changed a bit! He's an awesome bow tech. and just a great person to deal with and visit with. He'll have ya laughing before you leave with some of the things he says. He put an arrow rest on a Alphamax for me and wow, he had that thing tuned and shooting great right from the get go !
Proud Hoyt Vector 32 shooter and Dirt Nap Gear DRT broad heads !
Even prouder Christian,husband,and dad, and grandpa !
Resurrecting an old thread, anybody know offhand what the hours are for Tom's shop?
All I know is he opens at 9 and is open every day but Sunday. He also closes doors periodically during hunting seasons. Hes a greatt bow mechanic and has a wealth of hunting knowledge. This man has taken alot of game in his day. I bought the first bow from him a couple yrs ago on here through Boonerbrad. I have since bought three more and soon to be four. I call the guy about once every couple months just to shoot the s#!t. Heck of a guy !!
He is open 9-6 Monday thru Friday and 9-4 on Saturday . I would recommend anyone who now hunts visit his shop. Ignore all the rumors you hear, I don't know where people get their info...

Thanks buck. A buddy of mine used to shoot with him a few years back and frequented his old shop. We've been meaning to pay him a visit, but we couldn't find his hours anywhere. And some people will believe whatever they hear or make their own stuff up just to make themselves look better. Got 2 good shops in the Terre Haute area now (that I know of) Tom's shop and Cornfed Archery in Brazil.
Thanks for the compliment. It's not my goal to be the biggest but to be recognized as one of the best shops in the area and one that everyone likes to come to.Thanks buck.
