Default I inherited a nice target bow

Due to some family deaths over the last few years, i have wound up with a Bear Archery Tamerlane HC300. It is an absolutely beautiful specimen. This is the bow my uncle used to shoot target tournaments with. It is the bow he used when he first took me and my brothers to the range and introduced us to archery. Somewhere around Belton back in the mid '60's. I plan to get a new string, some appropriate arrows, and give it a go at CCR when the weather is nicer. I couldn't be happier to have wound up with this bow.

That’s the Shelby Cobra of vintage Bear archery. Beautiful piece, keep it in the family and enjoy it.

I have a Bear Grizzley that was my father-in-laws that still have the paper warning label on it. It's a display piece for me.

I had one for several years shooting field archery. A stepparent trashed it when I joined the service after college in 1970.
The panel above the arrow rest is a built in sight.
I loved that bow and still miss it tot his day.

What's your uncles name. My dad helped start up the archery range between Belton and Salado right off I35. I shot out there alot back then as a kid. Just wondering if I know your uncle.

Several trees died in order to supply the wood for that bow. I bought one just to see what they were all about. Not something that I would want to tote around for long. The Kodiak Specials are just about as big, from 1965 to 1967. The Tamerlanes were the pinnacle of beauty in the Bear bows. Some of the wood combinations and intricate layups were the work of artisans.

Can't put a value on a treasure and keepsake like that.

Can you give me a short tutorial on how to use the sight?

I believe that is a blanking plate. If you want the sight installed you have to first remove the blanking plate.

What a beautiful bow! My mom has one, she has it hanging with several other special bows. I've always wondered about that plate over the rest, and now I understand why it is there.
