    Default Bear whitetail

    I purchased a Bear Whitetail compound bow (left handed) when I was a teenager back in the mid 80's. It has sat in a cloth case all these years in her closet. I recently retrieved it...and had the string replaced. The bow was hardly used and is like brand new. Would this be worth anything? I have no use for it or attachment to it.

    Probably not. I see them pretty often with accessories for $50-100.
    Auto correct hates me and I don't proofread. So whatever sounds good is what I actually meant.

    I will agree with the above. I still have mine from back then. It was the first compound I bought. When I went traditional I got rid of all thing compound except that bow. It's still all set up and ready to shoot. I took a hog and a few deer with it. I got a picture of me with the bow and the hog...somewhere.

    I bought a couple of them in a local pawnshop a while back for $20 each. I set them up at 45 lbs draw weight for the grandkids and friends to shoot.

    That's pretty much what I figured. It's hanging on a wall in the garage not taking up any space so I will just hang on to it until I can find it a new home. Thanks for the replies. I'm shooting an older Parker easy draw and have taken a whitetail each year for the past 4 with it.
