Bear Archery Super Kodiak Recurve Review: One of the Best Bows Made to Date
Nothing has grown so fast and furious in the hobby of Archery Collecting anywhere near the growth that collecting Bear Archery memorabilia has. It doesn't seem to matter what the item is, be it broadhead, bow, catalog, or even LP record albums of Fred telling hunting stories, if it says Bear Archery on it, someone wants it bad! In this article, I will present an overview of Bear Archery, and give you just a taste of the different items which you should be looking for. Then in later columns, we can get into the details of particular items. But for now, sit back and enjoy our time capsule of the most famous archery company of all time.
After becoming fascinated with bow hunting in his early years, Fred began to craft his own hunting tools based on personal needs and experience. And they were very, very good. During off hours of his regular job, he made bows for a close circle of friends who loved his work. The demand for his skill got so high that he finally founded Bear Archery in the 's so he could hire people to help keep up.
Indeed, the Super Kodiak is no different from any other Bear Archery model in the fact that the bow has exquisite visual appeal, feel, and perfected function. An investment in the Bear Super Kodiak Recurve bow is considerable but well worth every penny if you are an archer who demands nothing but the very best. The Black Phenolic model features a three-piece attractive riser; the bow has a gorgeous accent stripe made of Bolivian Rosewood.

Nels was a fantastic craftsman, and his skills were reflected in the quality of the bows he made. Early on each and every bow which Nels made was either stamped or signed with his name, along with the words "Bear Products by Grumley" or "Bear Archery by Grumley".
