:hi: and Welcome to HR! The condition of the bow is a factor on value. A very close inspection for cracks or other potential defects should be done by a Pro Shop before using it.
A quick review on eBay shows a large price range on Fred Bear bows and using the pictures on there you might find what model you have.
eBay link :idea:

A picture is worth 1,000 words.
Can you post a link to that bow that looks like yours?
Realistically, a model name would be most helpful.

I'm not familiar with that model. But, given the camo pattern and green bubble logo below the handle, my guess would be somewhere in the late 1990's to early 2000's time frame. It would have been considered an "entry level" bow by the cam style.
I would contact Bear directly with the serial number to verify.

Not sure on the year but it's a G32 for the model and they renamed it and stuck the buckmasters logo on it to sell in wally world I know this because I own the buckmasters one. I've had it about 5 or 6 years now to give you an idea on the age of your's mine still shoots good too. Unless I had money for a new one I couldn't sell mine. Probably with the original purchase price being about 250 with an included whisker biscuit and cheap truglo sight you can't get much probably about what you paid for it.
