Default Oregon bows?

Does anybody know as to what happened to the Oregon bow co. Checked the internet and can't find anything.

RH36,
They are done. I think it was either due to some quality or $$$ problems.
I think they went out of business 1-2 years ago, but I don't know for sure.

I am pretty sure that it was even longer than that. Rumor has it that there was some severe mismanagement of the company which led to their demise. There are several folks who frequent these forums that could give you more info I am sure.

Bowtech is in a small way.........Oregon. I heard Bowtech's top engineer came from Oregon, but cannot confirm that.

My nearest pro shop carried Oregons and had a lot of limb problems.

Nope...BowTech is NOT Oregon, Top engineer only licensed his cams to Oregon. Hope to clear things up. Thanks [8D]

Yep...Strother licensed his cams to Oregon. He lost quite a bit of moolah (as did all the Investors) when they went under.

Oregon folded nearly 10 years ago (1995).
