Bear Perception
Editor review:

2019 is a great time to be an archer. Every company is producing great shooting rigs, which allows shooters to choose a bow that fits their personal preferences. For bow companies, it has to be a bit frustrating as well, because everyone's a critic, most of the time without ever shooting the bow themselves. Just a quick google search of the Bear Perception will show many polarized comments related to the price of the bow, and the shoot through riser design on a hunting rig. A deeper look will more than likely reveal the same people complaining about a lack of innovation in the archery industry and manufacturers producing similar rigs year after year without anything new. It is hard not to get sucked into those conversations. The Bear Perception is an awesome bow. Is it for everyone? Absolutely not, and thankfully we live in a time when every major bow company is making more than one flagship model to accommodate different shooters. Those wanting the most innovative bow from Bear will be thrilled the Perception exists. Those not wanting to spend more than $1000 on a premium bow, for a giant like Bear Archery will complain about the $1499 price tag. As a hunting bow, the Bear Perception checks a lot of boxes. It has a unique riser designed to minimize torque and flex, while still only weighing 4.3-pounds, is smoking fast at 350 feet per second, and has what many consider a perfect hunting bow length at 33-inches axle-to-axle. The Bear Perception is a great hunting bow, and should get a lot of love and respect for those willing to give it an honest try. With limited production of this rig, if shooters are interested in one, they should make the jump to purchase quickly because the opportunity may not come again... read full review
