Saw one for sale. 1973 with a massive, rosewood riser. Nice looking finish on the riser with Camo sleeves on the limbs. Not a bad price, either.

But my last “bargain” bow is a make most people have never heard of because there are almost none of them left due to a gluing issue that caused many of them to delam. Not sure if I should even try to shoot it, but I’m only out $5.....

Herter’s Sitka?

That could be it...

But of course I’m having trouble posting a picture, so the world may never know!

The description with the giant piece of Rosewood sure sounds like a Herter's Sitka.
