Thought you might enjoy this lil video,
I love this guy ... a real craftsman. This is true traditional archery to me ...
I made a couple Osage bows. It's a bit of a task, between learning it and actually doing it.
Mid 1960's Ben Pearson 709 Hunter
58" OAL - 28" Draw - 45# Draw Weight
I have a Ben Pearson "Strato Jet" hunting bow.
Damon Howatt "Hunter"
28" Draw - 45# Draw Weight
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.
Damon Howatt "Vigilante" An indoor competition bow,
28" Draw - 32# Draw Weight
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.
My wife is giving me a Bear Grizzly for Christmas. I'm feeling like a kid again.
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?
That's nice! Sharp looking wood on it. How many # pull is it?
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.
It's a 40# pull.
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.
