The link below is what I started in a wrong section of the forum trying to gain some insight on the Bear Bow I received in momery of a friend. I would like to get what I need to shoot it: a string and find out what was mounted on the two holes, Also any recommendation of the "rest", if it need one and the items on the strings to make it quite. I am new to archary hence poor terms for bow components. Thank you

Your Kodiak Special is a 1962 model. The limb glass should be a mint greeen color under the finish that has yellowed over time. The holes were non factory for some type of attachment like a fishing spool which has already been suggested. They can be plugged and color matched to help hide them. You should use a dacron string on a bow of that age and always use a bow stringer while stringing and unstringing.

Nice memory of your friend, you have a classic bow there. Bear bows from that era are very popular, both for shooting and especially for collecting. I didn't read the whole thread in the link, but it looks like yours might be a '62 (look at the photo in the second post). Lots of information on Kodiak Specials here:
