Fall of 2012. I'm still hunting with my Bear that dad bought me when I was a sophomore in high school. My cousin calls it antique. I finally got my wall hanger and dad was with me. It was a top 10 day. This buck ran no more that 60 yards after nailing him at 15 yards with my antique Easton 2219 and 4 blade 140 grain rocky mountain broadhead. I still have my first Bear recurve and dad still has his take down BenPearson. OK I'm 51 and dad is 74 and still climbing the trees. God willing, we have may more memorable hunts. I came to this website after watching the Outdoor channel in search for a new bow. YES a NEW bow !!!!!
