Found a Paul Bunyan Bows
Oct 5th, 2020 at 1:33pm
 
We have a local aution in town on FB, my gf uses it. I dont have an account. Picked this up for $22. Not sure if its fiberglass or straight glass bow, from the 50s or 60s. Couldn't find much information about it, but its the 600 series, 60# draw. I already have the string off, it was old, i could only draw it like 3in. I need a new one, but i am doing some tests on it to check the integrity of the limbs to make sure i can get it back to its former glory.  It also needs a new leather handle.

What a find, fibreglass can hold up pretty well if stored correctly, hopefully for you

I am hoping it wzs stored correctly,  but not sure, due to being strung when igot it, the auction had no information about it, so my knifemaking mentor, who has been making bows for just as long. Has bee giving me tips,  and now ihave it set aside so i can test it in a week or 2.i hopetobeable to shoot it, but at 60lbs, not sure if i can manage that. Might be a while lol
