Hi 74, you have a Fred Bear recurve. That will never be an antique. They’re like old vintage wine. I’ve always had a bow since I was a kid, and started out shooting wood arrows. I’m not into the new bows but I like to shoot. They’re the ultimate quiet weapon in the woods. This is the time before the weather changes to get out for some practice. I’ve got a Ben Pearson hunter model about 45#.
