This is interesting.!!!!
If you really look at the bow - everything about it looks like a Martin. Limbs, riser, grip, cable rigging, limb bolts/washers, wheels, cable rod and bracket, ...
Very interesting indeed!

Yes, that is a very old Martin, very similar to the first Martin Cougar Magnums. They made these bows and sold them to various companies under a different name. I believe they did this for High Country when they were starting out in Idaho, before they split and became Alpine and High Country moved to TN. Martin did this also for some models and named it the Safari for another company. Kind of like what they did for Dick's. Back then even a Pro Shop could get a similar bow with their own name on it if they ordered enough.
