My first bow was a Browning Nomad back in 1967. I paid 37 dollars for it at a sport shop with money I made washing dishes at the local diner. Well yesterday I bought a lightly used Browning Explorer II 62", @ 45#. I believe it's a 1973. Should be fun to mess with when it gets here.

My first was a Browning Safari II. I think I paid 30 bucks for it with money I made working at a local gas station. I think you'll like yours Ron!

I have a couple of browning bows. They are some of my favorites.

I've hunted with an Explorer II for years. Smooth and good shooting. I even have one in 62# that I haven't shot.
