Every time I see this thread title, I read it as "bear compound butter" and think it should be in the food section.

That looks like a good candidate for a warfbow.

So now it will probably hang on her garage wall.

Bows are like shoes.
They have to fit the individual.
But her a bow that fits in a weight range she can handle.

It won't take long before she will be able to draw more weight if she wants to hunt.

Take it to a bow shop, have them check it out, lower the poundage, and see if she can then pull it. If yes replace the string, and buy correct spined arrows, have fun. If not maybe sell it and buy a newer used bow with good adjustability that she can change as she gets stronger/older.
That's my bow also, a Black Bear 2. It's a compound, no dry firing. I took mine to a bow shop to have it looked over/worked over. My Black Bear 2 is adjustable between 55 and 65 pounds of draw, and with me at 69 y.o. 60 pounds is plenty. My Black Bear 2 is second fiddle to a much newer Bear cam bow.

She says its a BEAR- Compound - Hunter ...are the names on it.

I will probably take it to the local range and hope to catch a member at the archery lot to look at it and give her some pointers.

What are some things for a beginner to look into? I have looked up some images and they are all different how can I ID it? Also find the draw weight as she said she couldnt pull it and saw no number other than a CC#?


I hope to get my hands on it tonight and will try to get a picture of it.
Yes this is a lot to throw out and we are just starting
Thanks
There are a lot of people here with bow knowledge and experience. I, for one, have shot compound for many years and was a member of a archery club for quite a few of them, an officer of the club for a number of them. If you can give a general indication of your area there might be a member here that might be able and willing to give some instruction.

You can always make one of these up for her in her draw weight.
