    My first bow was a Bear Grizzly in 1970. First deer with it was a nice 8pt. The Bear hunting broadheads are now a collectors item and I have seen them for $10+ ea. I always stop in Grayling on the way deer hunting. Also, have taken the canoe float down the River about 30 miles. I recommend that for everyone.
    10.00 each, you can still buy them cheaper than this new crap. Now if only they where still around.

    There isn't. Hoping my right hand will come back around. My shoulder did so fingers crossed. Won't ever be shooting a bow or larger caliber handgun again either. It is what it is.

    I had been coming up to deer or pheasant /grouse hunt almost every year but after my accident in September I'm not sure I'll be able to any longer as my ability to walk has been severely curtailed. Bird hunting is over for sure.

    Dewman, I was brought up in Lewiston as the only grandson of maternal grandparents, so had a great childhood hunting and fishing lakes and small trout streams in the area. Was in Jay’s several times, great place ! Do you still visit here in the state ?

    I was born there. Grew up in Perrinton. Hunted down the railroad tracks and fished pine creek from Grant road to Rainbow Lake. Bought my guns at the small original Jay's in Clare. Sound familiar?

    Before it was moved to Florida in 1985, when we summered at Houghton lake, we would buzz up to Grayling to the Fred Bear museum. Again, this was 1967-1978. I remember nearby was a miniature railroad ride that would take you around a pond with painted concrete safari animals, most with pieces broken off. I learned to bow hunt with a 50# Bear recurve. My uncle still has that bow with a half dozen wooden arrows and bear razor broadheads on the wall of his hunting camp-second home near Alma. When I got my first compound, a bear whitetail hunter, I sold him that whole rig for $10.

    Jason, I thank you greatly for posting that. I was fortunate to visit Mr. Bear and be given the tour of his small archery shop in Grayling on a number of occasions in the mid ‘50’s. He was a great person to know and I have some great memories of my contacts with him. Those times have caused me to be a devoted traditional archer yet today. Thanks again.
    Whether it be traditional or not archery would be 30 years behind if not for Fred Bear. I loved the part about the salute that was hreat.
