Glady Fork Archery in Weston. The owner can be a little grumpy at times, but the other guy is great. They both do excellent work

I think that the Sportsmans Refuge in Morgantown is one of the best around. The people there are super nice and are willing to work with you and your equipment personally. They have an awesome indoor range facility with 3D targets, Spots, and a Techno Hunt. I drive from Mingo County just for the service. I'm sure a pass up around 20 other bow shops on the way.

I agree with Hunters Haven in Elkins. An awesome place to go. I just wish I lived closer.

I just went all out and bought a pro-shop kit from apple.Great package they put together; comes with press and stand,saw with dust collecter,vise,assortment of tools,screws,shrink tubing,e-clips and a nice tray that mounts on the stand with the saw and vice.I already have tuned and restrung some of my buddies bows with no problem.

I like going to Gary's Sporting in Spencer, WV. I also take a couple trips to the Great Outdoors in Fairplanes/Ripley.

Addingtons Bowhuntershop in Winfield/St. Albans. They have been in business for around 30+ years. Frankie wrote some articles here.

My Top Two Picks
#1) Spring Hill Rod & Gun---Great bunch of guys there, friendly atmosphere most of the time Terry knows his bow stuff and is always very helpful. There is also a younger guy that goes by "T"--He's a good boy and is learning the ropes.
#2) The Great Oudoors---Troy is very knowledgeable about everything archery and is a great shot to boot from what I hear.

Agree with Morgantown's Shops.
1) Sportsmans Emporium
2) Sportsmans Refuge
Hunter's Haven in elkins has a nice setup and I've heard good things about Jerry's in Weston!

Hunters Haven in Elkins.
Bullseye Belington has a really nice range.

In a day of big box stores, mail order, and internet sales--THANKS for supporting not just my family's pro shop but all of the pro shops you have listed. There is enough business for all of the shops---thanks to you. I am sure the other dealers will agree and thank you as well.
Good luck bowhunting this fall. If you are in the shop be sure and visit with Pop. I travel all over the country and can tell you he is one of the best in the business when it comes to tuning and solving problems. Hitting a baby aspirin in mid air is easy when he tunes my bows...

Another vote for Glady Fork Achery. Chuck is awesome, just have to be patient and don't go in there last minute if you can avoid it. Treat him well and he'll treat you the same.

There is a new bow shop and indoor range at Mad Sporting Goods(Bass Pro Shop on Rt.14 in Boaz).Very knowledgable staff that is offering a shooting class this winter.The indoor range will open mid November.I can't wait!

Well I just changed my mind on Sportsmans Refuge. They have really bad attitudes towards anyone who doesnt shoot on their range! I walked in looking to buy a new bow and i said "I am looking to buy a new bow". Only help I got was here are our prices! ***!! Not going to mention any names but they really have no salesmanship!! So I retract my statement from eariler post about SPORTSMANS REFUGE being a good shop.
I definetly reccommend SPORTSMANS EMPORIUM. Owner Mike is awsome. Even if you dont buy anything from him he will answer any of your questions, might give you a hard time about a bow you didnt buy from him, but will definetly work on your bow. He will even BS with you about anything!
Sorry but I had to VENT to someone about my experience. Never will I reccommend Refuge to anyone again.
Have a good day!
