The one Grumley Deerslayer I have followed by a Dogleg Kodiak Mag Type one.
Both in excellent condition.
Another very interesting piece is a Belgium Carriage bow from the mid to late 1800's.

I have posted pictures of these numerous times and at this point it would be a bit redundant..... [knothead]

Jon, I had a '69 K Hunter, one of my all time best shooters.

I have a pair of 67.5 Super Kodiaks. One is 60" and 48#, the other 64" and 48#. Both in "perfect" condition. I'd post pic's if I could ever figure out Photo-bucket.

I have been pondering the question of which bow is my favorite for two weeks now, and have come to the conclusion that my bows are like my grandchildren, I really do not have a favorite. But I can say that I catch myself gazing at the rack that holds the 1959 through 1962 Kodiaks, Kodiak Specials, and Kodiak Deluxes the most. The 62 KS with the lively glass color and deep brown rosewood really grabs the eye. And to think, at one time I could not understand what Fred was thinking when he chose that color.

Brad, if I had a penny for every minute I've spent scanning the boards for a 62 KS in hunting weight, I could buy it if I find one. [Big Grin] A truly distinct and handsome bow and a thoroughbred shooting machine.

I've adopted too many bows that needed a good home.

Middle: 1960 Northwoods Quiver with Hood
Bottom: St. Charles quiver owned by the late Sterling Harrell and signed by Glenn

I'm a quiver fanatic. I love the old NFAA patch that adorns Sterling's quiver.

Very cool stuff here. I used to own a butcher block 1959 Grizzly that very well could take the cake for me.

I think the coolest bow I own is this 1967 62" Wing Thunderbird that I have learned is likely a prototype futurewood bow built right before Bob sold Wing. This bow absolutely smokes arrows. Nothing classic I have owned compares. I am going to have it refinished a bit and hunt it.

Most guys would thing this should be my prize. I am the second owner of this bow. I bought it locally here. It's really a dream bow for sure. I have an original stabilizer and the catalog the original owner got when he bought it. He bought it in 1970 though and the catalog is a '70

Mangonboat - that BP is very cool. It looks like a shooter for sure!

Hopefully some other guys will post soon and they are just trying to determine the coolest of the cool bows they own!

an osage selfbow with slight flipping of tips made by Joe Mattingly and given to me as a gift just before he passed. RIP Joe.

Colin, bow porn is bad enough, but LEFTY bow porn! You're killing me! Those two are as good as it gets.

When Head Ski took over, did they run production on a 62" Futurewood T-bird? I've never seen one.

Ron,
That selfbow is priceless. It too would be my prized possession.

Mark,
This thread talks about the Thunderbird I own. It's not in the best shape, but man it shoots and Kelly described it as likely a prototype and "one rare bird"

My goal is to hunt that bow this fall

Here are some of my bows that are readily available for pics. I have been collecting for awhile, I have 35-40 bows. I have been cherry picking them, many were never shot pieces, not anymore! I really like bear Tijumins, Wing archery, pearsons, hell I like em all! I really like target bows. Hope you enjoy
the pics
