Default Alpine Archery Alpine Hunter?

So unbeknownst to me my wife decided to track me down a bow to replace the Bear Flare 2 bow that I have. Well that being said she had a friend who is also new to archery track me one down on craigslist. They ended up finding an Alpine Archery Alpine Hunter bow with some accessories and a broadhead target. The only thing I can find on it was it was made in 1993 has a 70# draw weight and is adjustable from 28-31 inches draw length. They bought it from some shady guy in NC for $250! and it looks not much newer than the bear flare 2 I had, I'm enraged! and to top it off I think it's stolen, because it doesn't have a sticker where every bow I know has one with it's specs. can someone at least tell me something useful that may take some sting off my wounds if not i'll just be pissed at the fact my wife made a poor decision and i'm stuck with a bow that's worth 1/4 what she paid for it.

well one positive thing is your wife cares enough about you to spend 250 to try to suprise you with a bow. give her a big hug and thank her

I agree with longcut! At least she tried to do something nice for you. just cuz the sticker is missing doesn't mean it is stolen, the bow is 8 years old and could have been used in wet weather

Call Alpine and ask them a few questions. Alpine was my first brand of bow and I loved it!

Alpine is still alive and well, look up the Ph number off their websight and give them a call. Give your wife a hug too.

Talking Here's what I think !

Think of that bow as a pricey bowfishing rig , heck I shoot a mid 90s Martin Firecat for the taking of them underwater critters and it works great , as I never replace it with a Mathews !
