Several years ago my father-in-law tried to give me a old Bear recurve. I didnt want to take as he bought it new in like 1960. Well he just passed away and my mother-in-law insisted I take it as she knows my love for hunting. It's Bear Alaskan, 62" / 45#, has black and orange limbs. My question. I would love to hunt with it as my father-in-law told me several stories of deer he harvested with this bow. But, if it's vintage and worth quite a bit or if being that old it may cause damage I'll put it up. Not sure?
