Bringing back the 80`s! – Watch Ken Beam dust off his 37 year old bow from 1982!

Recommended Posts

Whelp I have not hunted with a Bow and Arrow since suffering that massive heart attack three years ago…….. and now I`ve decided give `er hell and have a go at it.

I`m an old-school Bow Hunter and for the life of me, I cannot get comfortable using a Bow Release, as I have always shot with my fingers. So I dug out my very first Compound Bow that I ever bought in 1982 when I was 19 years old! This relic of a Bow, has not seen daylight in over 30 years!

*Watch me re-fletch arrows and actually shoot this 37 year old Bow that has been put away since 1982!

**Click the link below to watch this cool, little Video that I shot;

Good luck to all of you this deer season! Be safe

So much for everyone telling me I need to change my string and cables every couple years :D

(Always love the hat!)

Hey thanks mazzgolf - Yea that is the original string & cables......... nothin` wrong with them at all. I have shot the bow at least 60 times in the last few days. No worries..........at all. Good to go!

I think the change of the string is like changing oil every 2 miles:-) 

i have a Hoyt I hunted hard for 7 years. Then it was just sitting there fir the next 5. I shot it last Sunday and it shoots like the first day I got it

That is cool! Good luck with it:up:

I wish I still had my  first bow, it was a Bear Whitetail II. I let someone who I don't speak to anymore use it when he was new to hunting and never got it back(over 20 years ago)
