Buddy of mine acquired this unique ambidextrous bow, but the markings are wiped off. It,phlls about 40# maybe. Any ideas? Arrows are Browning. Two weird spiral broadheads also. Thanks, you guys are the experts. TK

Is that not a Bear Alaskan?

Not a Bear Alaskan. I have a dual shelf Alaskan and the grips are substantially different.

its a early Ben Pearson possibly the Cougar model ....... the strike plate is a dead give away as well as the shelf material .... I have owned a few of these cool old bows .... Lonnie

Possibly an early Ben Pearson "Cougar'. Had one very similar to it, (handle/grip/riser design, and the faint remains of the writing) loved it but de-laminated, flaw in back glass. Need to see the whole thing- recurve? Semi-recurve? Any more specs?

Thanks, I'll see if I can get more pics. It is not mine, but a guy I work with. I'll get more specs when I get him to bring it back in. TK

This is the latest info. from the bow's owner: "Looks like it might be Model # 964, made in 1958. That's the only year they did a RH/LH bow. After that date they were either RH or LH." (Ben Pearson). The attached picture is not the bow he has, but one he found a picture of, very similar. I'll post more of his Friday.

From the 1959 Ben Pearson Catalog.
