Default What was your 1st. Hunting Bow you bought?

My first hunting bow I bought was in 1981 and it was a Darton WH-500.

Bear recurve 45 pound, in the 60s...

First compound was a Bear Whitetail in 1975...I still remember the first time I pulled back on that bow, unbelievable...

I remember those bows Hawkeye, it's amazing how far bows have come since then. Back then, those bows were special.
