Chuck, Thanks for posting the serial numbers. I especially liked your concept on the 70", player to be named at a later date....

Your concept might be better stated as...

"Draft pick to be selected in later round"

Hey, it looks like you are in need of some replacement 1958 KS strike plates too. Trap is sending me a sample for some bows. Will let you know how they look. Trap - the pressure is on you now...

LOL Wade, Actually I hadnt given the 58 Kodiak Special much thought. I was just funnin around.

The 57 and 58 KSs are on the list of things to watch down the road but I have some other gaps to fill first.

Thanks for the offer though, Trap

Trap - With your Kodiaks you have plenty of better shooting bows than the 66" 1957 KS.

What other gaps are you looking to fill first?

Personally, I hope Chuck puts that 64" Rosewood Sight Window up for his next monthly give away, and that I win it!

Great question Wade, I'm not sure where to go from here. So many great bows out there.

I've only collected '54 through '62 Kodiaks. I've had several 62" Grizzlies but have sold most of them off or traded them to add Kodiaks.

I considered the static Kodiaks and have also considered the 63 through 66 Kodiaks.

The 59 and 60 Kodiak Specials are attractive.

I may just try to add "special" bows that fit in with the group of bows I currently have.

I'm actually quite satisfied with the bows I have which is more than I can shoot. I'm starting to appreciate the other Bear Archery collectibles such as back quivers, arrows, photographs etc.

If Chuck puts the 64" RW up for a give away, I hope you win it. You just never know. Is that a gap you are trying to fill?

About those plates, I'm trying to locate some leather that thin. . I'll find it. Just takes time.

Sorry for the Hijack, you asked so I just kinda rambled.

Trap - I'm just giving Chuck a hard time about giving away a rare bow that is in great shape. Hey, I tried offering him money (my standard offer) right after he got the 64" RW and that never worked.

Just combined Chuck's 1958 KS Serial numbers in with the ones I posted earlier. You can see the scrambled mess by lengths, when compared to the order by length for most 1959 KS...

I'm sure if more add more to this now very short list, the order will become even more scrambled...

Kodiak Specials

1958 62", 44# - YC815 – Wade
1958 62", 47# - YG315 – Chuck

1958 64", 55# - YC124 – Wade
1958 64", 33#@26" - YE390 – Chuck

1958 66", 49# - YC345 – Wade
1958 66", 57# - YF995 – Chuck

1958 68", 45# - YC753 – Wade
1958 68", 58# - YE421 – Chuck

1958 70", 54# - YE921 – Wade

Doc & Trap - Boy, I am doing anything but slackin. Up to my ears here for a couple more weeks while some of my family is on vacation. Also trying to get back to finishing up a partially completed project, updating a book that was printed 5 years ago. When things get back to normal or I take a break, will get these Special lists updated. Will try to check in everyday and straight you two out when you need it...
