Thats a neat piece of Bear History for sure. Maybe Bowdoc or Wade that have nore knowledge on Bear bows...

Re: Kodiak - Identification Guide 1950-1966

Wade, great idea,I pulled the sight window off and its not purpleheart, way to brown not even a hint of purple or red at all, its just a shade or two lighter under there so I am assuming its rosewood. The grain on the riser is tight almost like babinga but is almost blondish in color. Thanks . Ron.

Re: Bear experts what do you think?

Wade thanks for your reply, that was a great idea, it is rosewood under the strike plate maybe a shade or two lighter in color. Wade what type of wood do you think the bottom part of thr riser is on this same side? Its such a light color, I have never seen any rosewood such a blondish color. Ron.
