    Pse Nova, snuck up on a whitetail doe and shot her with a 4 blade muzzy at 44 yards! Good memories!

    1968 Bear Grizzly 57lb recurve. Only thing I ever got with it was a porkypine. Got a Black Bear compound next.

    For me it was an Eddings semi-recurve that I got from my Dad back in the late 50's. I got good with that bow shooting instinctive with fingers.

    I started out in archery with getting a 25lb Bear bow when I was about 9 for Christmas. I had so much fun hunting rabbit and squirrel with that around our house. When I turned 12 and was old enough to deer hunt, I graduated to a 45lb Black Bear bow. I got my first doe with it behind my grandparents house when I was 14 and then my first buck with it in the same woods when I was 15. A few years later I convinced my dad to get a bow. We now go archery hunting together for a week almost every year.

    Shakespeare fiberglass long bow @20# paid for with money from my paper route. All my friends learned archery with that bow.

    A 40lb pull recurve I think it was a black hawk. I remember the controversy of legalizing compound bows for use during archery season. Amazing how history repeats itself.

    First and only one I had & never had. Dad bought a Fred Bear Kodiak and shot a few deer with it. He quit using it and stored it in a closet. I told him I would like to have it. I was leaving for the Army (was drafted in 1963) and Dad said he would save it for me. When I got back we looked for it and ...no bow. Seems like my twit brother-in-law took it and sold it at a yard sale. Wish I had it just for a wall decoration!
