People buy new bows quite often, but was wondering who is hunting with the oldest bow? you may not care about "keeping up with the jones'" you may shoot/hunt (or know someone who does) with a bow that has done very well for you and just seems that you can't get rid of it; post some pictures or tell us about it; love the stories of those true and faithful bows.................rem

It's 7 years old. I got it the year I graduated high school and have done plenty of killing with it. Every once and awhile I start thinking I need a new one and then I just shoot this bad boy. I know it so well, and I'm comfortable shooting it in any position.

I honestly don't foresee getting a new one unless this one gets damaged or stolen. I tweak it now and again between seasons, and it only gets better!

I have a Martin Warthog compound, laminated wood riser and limbs, wheels, made in the mid 80s. I break it out about once a year for a nostalgia hunt. Shoot wood shafts or big aluminum shafts. I also have a couple of Bear recurves that are from the 70s. They don't get out for a hunt very often, but they're fun to shoot in the yard.

Brown Bear I bought in 1982. Easton 2216 shafts 33 inches long with a 32 inch draw. Rocky Mountain 125 gr. 3 blade broadheads. I still have my 50# Bear Grizzly recurve I bought in 1973 but can't draw it anymore.

What type of riser wood does that Grizzly have and what length is it...

There have been a few using Zebrawood over time and even fewer were 56"s...I've got both a 56" Babinga (19967/68) riser and a 58" Babinga (mid 70s) riser, both are 43#s

I'm not sure what kind of wood the riser is but I believe it's Babinga. It a two piece laminate with one stained green and the other brown. The bow is a 58 inch. I have a 32 inch draw and I'm holding 58 lbs. It's too much for me now.
