    Hey guys, is anyone able to help with identifying this recurve? On a few markings on it. Nothing obvious. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Looks a lot like the recurves we shot during the archery session of P.E. Sweet looking recurve. How does it shoot!?

    I actually just found out a couple days ago. It’s from Indian archery. Sometime from the late 60s. [​IMG]

    Cool find! I shot my first deer with an Indian archery bow in 1968. Mine was 35#. I still have it.

    This is the bow. The camo is masking tape colored with magic markers.

    I had to edit my post as I can see that my bow is a different model.
