1967 marked the end of one era and the beginning of a new one at Bear Archery: after 17 years of production, the Super Kodiak replaced the very popular Kodiak line of bows. Fred Bear himself used this model bow for many years, on quests for African lion, cape buffalo, Alaskan polar bear, and the British Columbian grizzly bear. Few bows of any kind reward the hunter with such a classic combination of feel, power, and sheer shooting authority.
