Grayling, Michigan for sure. I think the Alaskan was rgt or left handed.

Lets see a pic of the Tigercat. If you are sure someone spray painted the bow, I would use the orange biodegradeable stripper.

I'm getting ready to use that stuff myself on my Ruger 44 Carbine woodwork.

Yep. Nice Tiger cat. I see that side plate is a Bear 1959 Kodiak side plate.

#49 @ 28 good deal. I shoot #49 @ 27". Have you been shooting the recurve or are you stepping into it now ?

I was you in February of 2011. I bought this Kodiak Hunter at the pawn shop and just dove in. Shot whatever arrows I had . Knowing what I know now, I read a lot of things that I think were un-necessary. I could not get it together for almost two years. I met up with some of the bb gang in Pearl River - swampsnyper, J Lemieux, etc. and I had no clue how to shoot correctly.

All of the test arrows, test points, etc. all of the charts , it's all overwhelming. Split finger, 3 under, so much. I can now Generalize some things just from what you posted :

Assuming you are in the average draw length range, you will end up with 500 spine arrows .

If you are going to shoot off that shelf, your nock point will end up some where between 3/8 & 3/4 above square.

2 years of trying everything everyone told me or I read, my poor Lil Kodiak went flying across the yard in a fit of rage several times ( just grass- I knew it wouldn't hurt it ) my 1st new custom went flying 2x.

Under the right tutor, you can cut that 2 years down a lot. I didn't have it. I highly recommend Masters of Barebow DVD # 3, and watch Rod Jenkins. I like him because it breaks down the steps A, B, C, D. That's what I do in all facets of life.

I found there is a lot of nostalgia in the hobby. I inclined naturally more toward the target archery, although no sight. A little of both I guess you would say.

Good Luck.
