I just got a 59 Kodiak maple heart that had been high on my list of needs. I need to "need" something else. What do you still "need"?

I'm still looking for a few to complete my '58 collection. I still need to find a 56" Kodiak, and all the Kodiak specials.

The most important part of your hunting setup is the broadhead. The rest is just the delivery system.

My most treasured is still the 50# '62 Kodiak I found at a Trapper's convention. Not the prettiest or rarest by any stretch, but it's the bow that kick started this crazy addiction for me. Good thing I have all you other addicts for moral support. [thumbsup]

Proved to myself today that the "ELDARADO BOWS" exist in more than just our dreams.

Awaiting the arrival of my recently found Jack Howard Supreme Target bow.

One of only two that I know of to exist.

Will try to post pictures when it comes in.

Do tell! Great find on that one!
My fave (took me a wee bit of searching as well) is my '69 Bear Tamerlane HC-300.
Well worth the wait!

My first HAD TO HAVE was a near mint Browning Cobra...which Palapin assisted me in finding. [Smile]

Then it was a green glass, small tipped, near mint Explorer....found it too.

I have 12 bows now...after selling a few last year. When I think back to bows I wanted over the years...a Paul Schafer, a Blacktail Elite, a Bill Stewart Double Cam Limb recurve....not same draw as they used to have though maybe a Blacktail Elite from one of Norms earlier years (not the fancy ones now) would be nice.

I think my next journey is learning to make my own hickory and osage selfbows...that dont blow up on me and are functional and a pleasure to shoot and look at. I think that is going to bring my satisfaction going forward.

Hell, been thinking of selling that Cobra recurve that still is just as mint today as it was years ago when I first got it. Who knows... [Smile]

may sound nuts but I would really enjoy owning a LH 1963 Type 1 Grizzly.

My current most treasured is a lowly 1972 LH Grizzly. It's marked "40x#" but whoever did that was either a prankster or forgot their glasses. It scales 53# @ 28".

It's treasured as it's from my birth year and my cousin showed up one day and just gave it to me. He had found it for sale locally near his place.

I found a 1962 66" Kodiak Special in legal hunting weight, so now have refocused my obsession to finding a 1962 Browning Diana. I also ponder a 1961 Gordon Custom Deluxe with royal blue glass limb backs and creamy belly, but that just might be a unicorn.

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