cacciatore - If you read the text in the 1957 Catalog, for the three bows mentioned below, you will see that Bear made reference to three types of recurves....

Working recurve - Kodiak
Conventional recurve - Grizzly (static recurve)
Semi-Recurve - Polar

Guys,

Sorry about the photobucket images. Not sure what happened as I haven't been using it much for over a year.

I'll see if I can get them re-posted. In the meantime you can email me and I'll try to email the images to you.

Could a '53 have a running bear decal? Possible? Normal?

Possible.

1953 could have either an earlier small running bear decal or the later,and larger standing bear decal commonly found on Bear bows of 1954 and 1955. I believe the patent applied for decal changed to Canada 1953 when the standing bear decal began showing up.

Nice bow!
I have been on this site for 5 years and have owned a couple dozen Grizzlys...and never knew this thread was out there!

Thank you

I hope I'm not contributing to any potential marital discord, but there's a 1954 that appears to be in very nice condition currently listed on the auction site as a longbow. (I've sent the seller a correction.)

I'd be bidding but it's just 40# and i'm not interested at that weight. I suspect that some of you might be among the 23 currently watching ... [saywhat]
