Bear Status EKO Review

The Bottom Line:The bear legend series of those instills a boost of confidence just from association alone. Fred Bear is often noted as the founder of modern day bowhunting, and the legends series is the lineup dedicated directly to his legacy. Bear did an amazing job with the Status EKO bow, and it is going to be a... read full review

Bear Paradox HC Review

The Bottom Line:For a strictly designed hunting bow, there is a lot to get excited about with the Bear Paradox HC. Potentially at the top of the list of things to love about the bow is the price tag of only $499, with the Ready to Hunt package only being an additional $100. For those just starting out, or shooters needing... read full review

Bear Paradox Review

The Bottom Line:Bear Archery has always been dedicated to offering a wide range of different models at every price point. Bear Archery also offers bows for large box stores, but also have models sold only from archery pro shops. The 2020 Paradox is available at box stores, but is a really awesome hunting bow on paper.... read full review

Bear Divergent EKO

Bear Divergent EKO Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Divergent EKO is a limited frills hunting bow, which does everything it is designed to do. Shorter axle to axle bows are not for all bow hunters, but those on the market for something a bit more compact are already aware of what a smaller bow performs like, and should have no issues with the... read full review

Bear Perception Review

The Bottom Line: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.... read full review

Bear Divergent Review

The Bottom Line:The world of compound archery equipment is amazing.

Bear Kuma 30 Review

The Bottom Line:Bear Archery deserves a lot more love than it has gotten recently, especially with the Kuma lineup. The Kuma bows flat out shoot, and the newly added Kuma 30 does not disappoint either. For shooters wanting a shorter, more maneuverable treestand or ground blind bow, the Kuma 30 may just be the best available... read full review

Bear Species LD Review

The Bottom Line:Bear is one of the few archery companies that produce a bow for every single shooter on the market. The Species LD is an adult version of a hunting bow specifically designed to give shooters an entry level price without the sticker shock of a high end flagship model. Almost every adult shooter will fit... read full review

Bear Limitless Review

The Bottom Line:The Limitless may be the perfect bow for transitioning shooters through the phases of becoming an archer. The Limitless allows shooters to begin in the world of archery, and the bow can grow with them a long while before they are interested in a higher end model with a bit more speed. The MSRP of $199... read full review

Bear Kuma LD Review

The Bottom Line:The Kuma LD has everything shooters could possibly want in a long draw bow. The 330 feet per second is fine enough, the axel-to-axel measurement is long enough to be accommodating and short enough to be maneuverable, the 6.5-inch brace height is a mixture of forgiveness and performance, and the feel... read full review

Bear Salute
User rating:
out of 1 review
Bear Salute Review

The Bottom Line:The Salute has some flaws when compared to a flagship model, but those rigs are not in direct competition with the Salute to begin with. The Salute is designed for those wanting to get started with archery without wanting to spend a ton of money on a bow. For comparison's sake, the Salute is the price... read full review

Bear Approach Review

The Bottom Line:In an industry that is becoming increasingly dependent on advertisement telling shooters what they like, it is refreshing to see a bow like the Approach that steers away from all that, and simply performs well. If the Approach was designed several years ago, when single cam bows were at their peak of... read full review

Bear Approach HC Review

The Bottom Line:Bear claims the Approach HC breaks all the "Get what you pay for" rule, and that is an understatement. The Approach HC includes some of outstanding high-end features, has great performance, and feels outstanding for any bow. When considering the $449 price tag, this bow could be fully rigged with high-end... read full review

Bear Sole Intent Review

The Bottom Line:The Sole Intent is geared towards shooters with a shorter draw length in the 22-27-inch range. The silky smooth draw cycle of the single cam system on the Sole Intent is outstandingly smooth and easy to manage from the start of the draw cycle to the arrow release. Along with the limited draw length comes... read full review

The Bottom Line:The 2018 Kuma is the flagship model for the Bear Legend Series, and does not disappoint.

Bear Moment Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Moment is a high-quality, high-performing compact hunting bow backed by the legendary Fred Bear name. The specifications scream hunting rig, and shooters on the market for a high end hunting bow will surely love the MSRP of $899, which is on the low end of the going rate for an upper end hunting... read full review

Bear Cruzer Lite Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Cruzer Lite really shines with the ability to be adjusted basically from a starter bow all the way to a flagship model. This could be the only bow a shooter needs from early on all they way through being a teenager. With a fully setup bow for only $399, parents will be thrilled with the ability... read full review

Bear Threat Review

The Bottom Line:The Threat is a heck of a bow for $600, and the ability to add some accessories to get started straight from the factory for an additional $100 is a nice option as well. The ES cam system is a nice shooting cam offering some decent performance for such a smooth option. For shooters wanting a bow with... read full review

Bear Cruzer Review

The Bottom Line:Those looking for the adjustment of the Bear Cruzer elsewhere will have difficulty finding it. The draw length range is a massive 18-inches, and the limbs can be adjusted for 65-pounds. This bow will fit just about anyone, and coming in with a ready to hunt package for a low price of $399 makes the... read full review
