A very very old one by the looks of it. With the limb pockets doesn't look like there is any weight adjustment

Worth-----nothing. Adjustments none really, hang it on the wall and forget it. Not worth the time.

They made the Bear Whitetail for quite awhile in the late 70's early 80's, this is very similar to it, but don't think this is one. The Whitetail was a 4 wheeler I think.

Yeh, I had a Whitetail Hunter (think that's what it was called) and I believe it had four wheels. Been a long time ago. But, I agree with every one else that the bow is worthless.

I had one almost just like it in the 70's and i think it was called a Bear Tamberlane. Shot at a few deer with it, but when the arrow got there the deer was in the next county. That thing was noisy as a guitar on release. Went back to my recurve. If i were you i would donate it to a museum.

If I were you, since everyone says its worthless(it kind of is) I'd go kill something with it and post pics on here just to show them it still works!

I'd confirm the draw weight before hunting with it since most, if not all, states have minimum draw weight restrictions.

Might be a Bear Blackbear II Compound. Google this and look at some of the pictures you come up with. Closest thing I can find to what you've got.

Note a Bear Tamerlane the OP has. The Tamerlane was a "top of the line" Bear compound in it's day and was a target compound (4 wheel model). I think most, if not all of them were white. You may have had a Bear Alaskan Compound. They were basically the same bow, but the Alaskan pretty much all black/gray if my memory serves me correctly.

Antique. Hang it on your wall in the trophy room, that's about all its good for. Conversation piece + whatever sentimental value it has is all its worth.

You have a Bear Denim. I sold quite a number of them back in the late 70's early 80's era. They were quite popular with women and older kids. I still have one in my den along with a mini magnum which was kind of a shortened Denim.
