I have an old Fred Bear Grizzly bow.
It is serial # 7614, and is a 44# draw.
Has the "Pat. applied for" sticker is still
Any Idea how old this bow is?
What it might be worth?
Any help is very appreciated.
If there are no separations in the laminations or longitudinal cracks in the limbs, it probably is. I'd start by just pulling the bow back 1/4 of the way a couple of times; then 1/2 way a couple of times, and then 3/4 way a couple, before I come to full draw. Only use a dacron string on the bow and only shoot heavy arrows (10gr/lb of draw weight or more).
