First, let me say WOW!!!!!

Second, thanks for the tour.

Okay let's play a little game. If you could only keep one item from that entire collection/museum, what would it be?

Thanks for the photo-tour. Very nice.

I will keep your collection in mind the next time I think I have too many bows that I don't have time to shoot:-)!

Trap - That is is tough question...

Let's see, it would have to be the key to the door...

If I could only keep one bow, it would probably either Fred Bear's personal Grumley or the Snake Skin Back Grumley in this photograph that I just added to the first post on this thread...
