Recently bought a '64 zebrawood grizzly from a fellow member and it will go to the woods this fall- would like to get a deer with a little bit of history!
If you think you can or think you can't-you're right.

I have a '70 Super Kodiak out at the BowDoc's.  Having the shelf cut down and radiused a bit like Fred used to do.  Will have it refinished in satin non-glare finish.  Replacing the coin with the FBSC hat pin.  I have done this in my head so often, and now I'll get a chance to see if I'm nuts or not...............Shick

When I was 12 years old I was the oldest of 4 boys and my folks just divorced.  My mom scraped up the money to buy me a Sears Flicker Longbow made by Bear Archery.  That was in 1972.  I have no clue where she got the money cause we was po! I think I got a few frogs and a rabbit with it.  My first bow.  I still have it and always will!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea, if I do my part, she will stack em in there pretty good. Just the "doin my part" is the hard part!

How you like that there backstop? It's one of those foam step exersize thingies that ole sissy boy richard simmens sells. Found it at a flea market for a couple bucks. It took a lot of shots before I ate a hole thru it, thats for sure!
