I had the good fortune to acquire and very nice Kodiak Magnum. Just put the new string on and started turning it up. Could you help me please with some history, when it was made, I know Grayling, and brace height advise. I started with 8in but concerned that may be a little much for a short bow.

You can look at old Bear Catalogs online at

http://www.vintagearchery.org/catalogs-by-year.html

or look online at The Footed Shaft's website, in the search enter Kodiak Magnum to see what they have, you might call

Terry at the Footed Shaft in Minn.

I just did a search on TradGang. If the guy is correct the first number is the year. Being it’s a green riser it’s a 1974 vintage . Color of glass on limbs, overlay on riser can also help date bows. I went about 3 pages in to find the post. You can view without having to join the site. Lots of info on old bows in that foru.

Thanks so much for the help! And I really enjoyed spending the day looking at the catalogs, brought back lots of memories, I used to get the out of date ones from the Western Auto guy growing up. Especially the Bear ones, Mr Bear was a mans man.

The first number is the year only pertains to 1965-69 years. The number will be before a letter.

Regarding the green rise red Bears I believe they are anywhere from 1974-1977/78 I think.

Kelly pretty much zeroed in on the dates.

Kodiak Magnum 52"   Bear Catalogs first offered '72. Forest Green Futurewood.   The catalog list ended in '75 so it probably continued on a few more years.
