    Wow

    I've only seen 1 person in my shop that was a true 33" draw.

    I'd betting your uncle was mis-informed.

    If he really is a 34" it's gonna cost him to get a custom bow made.
    unless someone on here knows of something else.

    Wow! How big is this guy? If that's acurate, I'm afraid he's going to have to get a custom made bow.
    But really, if he's that big, he doesn't need a bow; find a tree big enough to support him and he can jump on and strangle anything that comes by.

    If he's that big and wants a Hoyt I'd recommend getting an AM 35, cutting the string off of it, braiding about 2 feet of logging chain to it, and adding a sting loop made out of dozer cable. Wow, that's a lot of draw length. He must be shooting arrows the size of fence posts.

    Horton has a bow that will go to 33 DL and a bow that tops out at 36 DL.

    Lol, why do so many post to tell him he's probably wrong, instead of giving real answers?
    I'm wondering for my son as well. He's 12 now, and has a 29" dl.. well, 28.75. 72" wingspan. He's only about 5'-10, and is no where near done growing.

    Since kids are growing so much bigger these days, are bow manufacturers going to keep up?

    Vantage Elite and Vantage Pro both will adjust to 34" with the Cam 1/2 Plus.

    you should be able to get a hoyt that long and dont forget that a loop will add a 1/2 inch and he SHOULD use a loop, my draw is 32 with my protech and at 38 inch AtoA i get a good amount of nock pinch. look for a long AtoA bow and remember a 8 + inch brace height bow at 34 inch draw is like a 29 inch draw guy with a 6 inch brace height bow.when i bought my protech in 04 i went with the most forgiving bow i could find because speed is not a concern for us long draw guys

    Hoyt definently makes bows for draws that long.

    He definently could have a draw that long.

    I met a man at Lowes once when looking for wood for a longbow.

    He was about 5'11" or 6'1"

    I am 6'1" and have a long draw length of 30.5" (at the low end) for my height.

    His draw length is 35.

    I admit, that the first thing I thought was "Yeah right!!" But it's possible I suppose. I think I'd make sure to have the guy measured a few different ways just to be sure, but if it's right, then more power to him.

    As for finding bows that will go to 34" good luck. There aren't alot of them out there, so finding the right bow for him may be a bit of a challenge. Tell him to be patient and don't settle for anything less than what he's totally comfortable with.
