Dating bear recurve method for relative dating
Based on the dating procedures listed below we determined that this was a Fred Bear Kodiak Recurve bow from 1965 in excellent condition. After we got the bow to our store we noticed that inside the big quiver was a smaller single quiver.Based on a light embossed marking on this smaller, leather quiver that we pulled out we were able to date it to the late 1940’s.Im totally amazed at how good everything has become for all of us traditional bowhunters.We have some of the most liberal hunting seasons here in the U. and most bow seasons are during the most beautiful time of the year to be out in the fields.Even on this site, most of the discussion is about Kodiaks, with occassional digressions about the Grizzly.Is there a person or website that can give us "odd balls" (maybe I'm the only one) help dating our Grizzly?In honor of our 60th Anniversary we are offering a version of our most popular model.
I've only got 3 Kodiaks, and at least 1 of them is headed down the road soon, I won't even bid on one.
None of us could ever thank enough the early pioneers of the sport that through their tireless efforts put bowhunting on the calendar for all of us to enjoy.
Although with the relentless anti-hunters' threat, there is no doubt that bowhunting would cease to exist without the constant efforts of organizations like The Professional Bowhunters Society, The Pope and Young Club, The Wildlife Legislative Fund, The National Rifle Association and many other national and state organizations.
Since we have the opportunity to sell a lot of different items through our e Bay Drop Off Store, certain things start to stick out that seem to sell extremely well.
One item that sticks out are the vintage BEAR Recurve Bows.
