    I made a couple Osage bows. It's a bit of a task, between learning it and actually doing it.

    Cool, that would be a Longbow. The 709 Recurve is the only Ben Pearson I have right now. Taught my Nephew basic archery on it. It was my 2nd bow when I was a youngster.

    Yep.

    I also collect Fred Bear bows. I have several older ones when he was starting out in Detroit. I have one here that appraised around 700 bucks. It's an ambidextrous recurve and it "appears" to have the original string.

    I had a Fred Bear Recurve that I liked quite a bit, but it got stolen out of my car in a break in. One of my Uncles gave me the Damon Howatt Hunter I have now, & I got pretty attached to it.

    Nice pick. I have 2 hanging on the rack right next to me, I also have a Kodiak Magnum and a Black Bear. I have a third Kodiak that was made when Fred was first starting out, it's ambidextrous and (((appears))) to have the original string.. I also have 2 aluminum recurves that were thought to be experimental Bear bows.

    Old Fred always recommended a 45# pull for hunting.

    I have a Martin 45# recurve.........and my hunting buddy, a Hoyt X-200 'take down' complete with carry case.

    What is the difference between a Kodiak and a Kodiak Magnum?

    I got the Bear Grizzly and am very happy. I shot 50 times today at a large hay bale. I started at 5 yards, then 8, 10 and 15. I didn't lose any arrows so I reckon I'm off to a good start. I am interested in a bow quiver, one that mounts on the bow. Are there any suggestions?

    Length. The Magnum I have is 45# pull and about 8 inches shorter than the Kodiak just above it. In fact it's the shortest recurve I own. Some call it a brush bow, lol.

    I really like the Selway I have, it's pictured just above your post. Slides over each limb so there isn't any damage to the bow. I have the slide on RECURVE quiver, they also make them for longbows.

    I've been looking at the Selway. I might have to get me one. I have a couple of quivers coming in the mail, but I want to try a bow quiver too.
    Here are two quivers I have ordered.
