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.

My new favorite bow is from BK it's posted here some where, I don't know how to put it here! I don't think BK'S vintage yet?? high mileage maybe, but 20 30 years from now this bow will be a conversation piece! IT maybe 6 feet under with me though Jeff W
