For the Bear collectors
« on: August 05, 2014, 03:03:00 AM »
I recently lucked into a 64 inch 1960 Kodiak Deluxe, maybe the very best of the Grayling Bears...coming soon to a shoot near you

I set out a while ago to reduce my herd of 40 bows...And I am finally down to 42

Nice collection!  Do you ever have much luck finding them locally?

Sorry I keep forgetting to check back...and yes I got really lucky on my pair of consecutive serial number 1960 Kodiaks...I bought them near Morningside...not a classic place to find such bows, I just got very lucky...the SK at the top of the picture came from a trade with a friend in Saskatchewan

There is really no magic to where you buy an old Bear...I have done many transactions across the border with great results...that 1962 Kodiak Magnum at the bottom of the picture came from Wisconsin, as did the Kodiak Deluxe...neither of those bows was even advertised for sale...I learned about both of them when the owners contacted me about something I had posted on here...the more you put yourself out there the more deals will come your way...I thought I paid quite a bit too much for the Kodiak Deluxe until a standard 1960 Kodiak sold on the big auction site last week for more...1960 Kodiaks are nice bows, but a Kodiak Deluxe is in a whole different realm

if you want to collect BEAR bows..there are alot more in the USA....I always talk with the prospective seller and make sure they are  on the up and up....so far ..all  except one was as advertised...the one that was not as advertised was accurate on the condition of the bow ...but not the weight ..so now I ask them to put it on a good bow scale....alot of BEAR recurves are not the weight stated on the bow...

nice bow there Dave...

the new kodiak that replicates the 1959 is nice and a real hard shooter...smooth to draw as well
