Very nice !
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.

That '64 looks really close to original except the glass colors are wrong. The '59 Kodiak with the maple sight window looks fantastic. The "Super Kodiak" looks a little like a 59 Kodiak Special, but nothing like a Super K.

The guy does some nice work! Nice looking bows.

Those are beautiful! Never heard of these guys before, but those are about the best looking repro's I've seen. Do they make a 1960 Kodiak?

Here's my email from Scott-
Hi Steve,

I build several Bear bow models. The 1959/1960 Kodiak in 60” & 64”. A 1959 Hybrid in 60”(shoots a bit faster w/less hand vibration). The 1961/1962 Kodiak in 60” (This model has somehow slipped under the radar of Bear enthusiasts. It is a fabulous shooter). The 1964 Kodiak in 60”(Great bow). I will attach a couple of photos. If you would like more I will gladly send. ($500.00 – 60”and $550.00 – 64”). I am currently in Ohio bowhunting and will be back in Colorado mid-December.

Thank you.

I can't tell you how impressed I am with shooting this bow. I'm a little slow but the light bulb finally came on. I guess there is a reason why some bows are considered classic in design. Back in the late 1970's and early 1980's, I just had to have a custom bow(s). I shutter to think of how many of these old classics I overlooked. I know it's not an original and still a custom bow but it is a sweet shooter.
Kodiak, maybe I screwed up on the Holcomb model, not sure now.

WOW those are awesome-looking bows, especially the 64! If the craftsmanship is as good as the pictures look, I think they are a steal at $500 to $550. Jim
