Got this from a guy off E--y. It was a 1963 jennings recurve bow rare and very collectable. He advised in an email he was trying something different cause he had a hard time finding bow boxes. Last I heard,, imagination and brains was something we all have?

Can you say baseboard heating boxes, flourecent tube boxes, dumpster boxes, making one out of 3.. I thnk you get the picture.. Luckily the bow was ok. Came all the way from California.

WOW! I get a lot of stuff mailed to me from sellers that make me shake my head. I never thought to take pictures though. I keep getting vintage Bear arrow boxes where the seller uses that great old box as the actual shipping box and they cover it with tape and postal stickers and packing slips. UGHHH!! Now I give clear instructions to place the arrow box in another box and to put no tape on the arrow box.

I just got a bow (Not a straight bow either) in a small round tube. They prebent (weakend) the cardboard tube so it took the shape of the bow. Some people are dumb.
