Looking for info about Bear Bow

Recommended Posts

Seeing all the Bear archery posts last week reminded me that I had this hanging in my garage.  Have no idea how old it is or anything about it's value.

Any help greatly appreciated.899442897_bearbow1.thumb.jpg.3c2963500511d9522922dfcf861271f1.jpg

I believe you have a 1969 bearcat looking at the serial number.  It appears to be in very nice shape and typically sell for about $150-$200

You can't pull a 40# bow?

I shoot a Matthews compound bow, the Bear bow was just hanging in the garage.  I would probably still struggle to pull a 40# bow the way the shoulder is right now though!!!!!!

The bearcat is what is referred to as a "school" bow because they were bought is large quantities for school and club training programs. I see them for sale usually for about $50.

I believe you are thinking of the “bearcub” bow (1969 red fiberglass backing).  This was a similar bow that was offered as a school or club bow.  The “bearcat” (1969 black fiberglass backing) was the affordable option to own a bear bow back then.  You can sell that bearcat for $150 all day long to collectors
