My 1972 Ben Pearson Ambusher. They were only made for two years, I saw another for sale on ebay...once. Its a 48" AMO 56@28. IIRC it weighs a mere 18 ounces. AND, i took my first "trad" buck with it on the family farm.

That bow looks like a shooter... is that your "go to" bow? Stacy Groscup liked bows just like that--- he wanted a small sight window and short bow.

I'll bet that bow is pretty fast.

Here are some of my stage bows... these range from 1985 through the late 1990's... I'm guessing. I have one model of every bow I have ever used on stage. I am working on getting them all in pne place on display.

My father has been in the retail archery business since the 1970's. In 1985 he built a 5500' pro shop/indoor range and has full mounted game, etc on display and there I have a Rev. Stacy Groscup display started we are doing and will eventually have some of his buckskins, etc on display... and I have many of my show bows on display.

He also has vintage Bear bows and others around the shop.
