Default New Bow

Well, new to me anyway. I have been trying to get my hands on one of these for sometime and the stars finally aligned last week and she arrived today. Stoked is an understatement.

This is for all you vintage bear lovers...

They are a fun bow to shoot. My guess is that you bought that from Lonnie.

I sold him a 62 Kodiak last week. He got a true Robin Hood in his first shooting session.

Some of the older Bears had a 5/8" to 3/4" positive tiller. It looks odd but they shoot pretty good.
