A buddy of mine picked up this bow a couple years ago at a yard sale I believe. It's his only bow and it's seen better days. But he loves shooting it and hunting with it. I have always been curious as to what it is? I always assumed a Ben Pearson since we live in Arkansas. There are no identifying decals or stickers on the bow limbs. And all it has on the riser is "wt@28" 50#. Which I assume is 50#s @ 28". And on the other side of the site window in the riser is stamped "blemished". Any idea what this bow is?

I have to agree with Bob, looks like a Pearson. I also have seen Ben Pearson bows stamped as "Blemished" on the riser.

My wild guess would be a Pearson Palomino.

Agree it’s a Pearson. Riser looks my old Pinto but it had white limbs.

Might be able to narrow down further if we knew the length. How long is the string used on it?

Looks like a Pearson Cougar to me...the "longhorn" silhouette while strung is what makes me think cougar...I had one years ago and looks like the same bow.

I'm at work, so I can't measure it at this moment. But I'm pretty sure the string I made for it was 58". I want to say it is a 62" bow. I will double check when I get home. Thanks everyone, for the help

Whatever it is--and it does indeed look like a Pearson--I like it![thumb]

So it’s a 60” bow and every Ben Pearson model mentioned so far are longer than that. Sorry am not familiar with their shorter models.
