Bear Agenda 6 Review

The Bottom Line: The Agenda 6 is part of the 2014 Bear lineup. Although this bow will be found in all archery scenarios, it is accurate and has the knockdown power a hunter needs. With a 32" ATA, 6" brace height, and only 3.9 pounds, this rig is strong, but not bulky and is easy to carry into the field. This bow can be ordered in five color schemes, is easily adjustable, and can be ordered with 50#, 60#, and 70# peak weight limbs. All adjustments can be done quickly with a hex wrench and without a press. This is a solid shooting platform that will please all those who shoot it...read full review

Bear Agenda 7 Review

The Bottom Line: The Agenda 7 is part of the 2014 Bear lineup. Offering a 32" ATA, 7" brace height, and an outstanding 340 fps IBO, this rig will fit in any archery situation, and perform extremely well. Weighing in at 4 lbs, this bow is easy to hold on target for a solid shot. It is also not so heavy that it will be a chore to carry around on those long hikes to your favorite hunting destination.This bow can be ordered in five color schemes, is easily adjustable, and can be ordered with 50#, 60#, and 70# peak weight limbs.

Bear Apprentice 3 Review

The Bottom Line: Any child with desire will get along great with this bow. Along with its' ease to shoot and its' good feel it gives a great idea of how an adult bow will feel someday. The large adjustment range and light weight make it great for any young shooter. It fills a niche in Bear's line up and it's an important one as an archer is just beginning with one of their bows. Even at lighter weights and shorter draw lengths it still has good speed with its' dual cams. If there ever happens to be any problems or questions that need to be answered Bear's customer service is amazing. The Apprentice III isn't apt to leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth for the first time shooting. The bow comes standard in a ready to hunt package including a Trophy Ridge 3 pin sight, Trophy Ridge Whisker Bisquit rest, arrow quiver, peep sight, and a string loop. The MSRP is $299.99 and with it being ready to shoot it isn't a bad price...read full review

Bear Method Review

The Bottom Line: It seems that Bear has hit the right place in the market with the Method. The bow is more affordable than the bows at the top of their line for the majority of the archery world and still has great speed with decent quality. The Hybrid Cam System is another good stride for Bear engineers. The dual cams are simple to adjust with the rotating module for any draw length within its range without the use of a bow press. It is comfortable and smooth for the speed it produces. This bow would do all and even more than a large percentage of archers would need it for. The customer service of Bear/Trophy Ridge is second to none and they are starting to get recognized even more for it. The Method is a must shoot for anyone in the market for an economical bow that has a lot to offer...read full review

Bear Motive 6 Review

The Bottom Line: This may be the best overall compound bow ever made by Bear. The Hybrid Cam System is another step in the right direction for engineers. The dual cam bow has awesome speed and it is also extremely easy adjust through the draw length range without the use of a bow press. The Motive 6 is well balanced and it is comfortable to shoot. The newly designed riser has a unique look yet it sports Bear's dual string suppressors that they have been known for. The bow will fit many different sized shooters and hunters with multiple weights available along with its draw length range. Many have been very impressed with the Bear/Trophy Ridge customer service that has been reported to be extremely helpful. The Bear Motive 6 is an impressive bow for those who are able to spend the money...read full review

Bear Motive 7 Review

The Bottom Line: Bear has produced a sweet shooting bow with the Motive 7. Their engineers have made another great move with the Hybrid Cam System. This bow has good speed and changing the draw length is a snap on the dual cams without the need of a bow press. It has a great feel and is forgiving. The riser gives it a new look of its own yet it retains the dual string suppressor look of Bear. There is a large size range of archers and hunters that this bow will fit with all the different weights and draw lengths available. The Bear/Trophy Ridge customer service has received some amazing reviews in how accommodating they are to their consumers. For those with big enough pockets, the Motive 7 will not fail to enthuse...read full review

Bear Domain Review

The Bottom Line: This is a good hunter's bow for a decent price. It is smooth, quiet, comfortable, and shock free with decent speed. For a new bow it comes in strong for 2013. The development with single cam technology from Bear is improving along with everything else from the company. For a single cam it has decent speed and with the brace height comfort at 7" it is nice and forgiving. The lack of hand shock also contributes to its comfort. The riser style and string suppressers make this bow a great looker and on par with the rest of Bear's bows. The Domain will fit a large range of shooters with all of the adjustable draw lengths and available weights. It would even be perfect for some youth. It has a MSRP price of $599 and would save some money for those looking at higher end bows only to hunt with...read full review

Bear Empire Review

The Bottom Line: This is a very underrated bow by many especially with the press that the Motives get from Bear. The technology from Bear engineers is still improving as it has been for a while now. It has good speed for a single cam bow and the brace height is very forgiving. The Empire is nearly shock free and is comfortable to shoot. The new riser is unique and attractive while still sporting the dual string suppressors that Bear is known for. It can handle a verity of shooter sizes with bows available from 50 lbs to 70 lbs. It also has a large range of draw lengths that can be adjusted with ease without a bow press. Bear/Trophy Ridge has amazing customer service and they show a great deal of concern for each individual. Any serious hunter or recreational shooter would truly appreciate the new Bear Empire if they want to pay the money it costs...read full review

Bear Anarchy Review

The Bottom Line: This is an amazingly smooth and fast bow combined. The single cam technology and engineering from Bear is continuing to climb the ladder over the past few years. It has excellent speed for a single cam bow and has very comfortable brace height creating a nice package. The Anarchy is dead in the hand at the shot and fun to shoot. The sweet new riser combined with Bear's unique dual string suppresser style is attractive. This bow can handle a wide range of shooters with all of the available weights and an adjustable draw length with ease. There are many that claim Bear/Trophy Ridge customer is outstanding. The new Bear Anarchy is ideal for anyone who doesn't mind a longer bow and can afford the price tag...read full review

Bear Outbreak Review

The Bottom Line: This bow can be used by any beginning archer from young youth to adult. It is fairly smooth and comfortable to shoot. It is a step above the Apprentice 2 in Bear's line up and seems to better for older youths with the Apprentice 2 more ideal for younger or smaller youths. It has good speed with the dual cams at all weights and draw lengths. The quality of Bear products keeps getting better. Although it lacks any color options there are many kids that still want a camo bow like Dad's. The Outbreak's gigantic range of adjustability makes it appropriate for a larger variance of archers than nearly any other bow. With an MSRP of $299.99 one can't really go wrong and it is a great price for a bow that will go up to 70lbs. in draw weight...read full review

Bear Legion Review

The Bottom Line: This is a great budget bow. It is the faster, smoother brother to the Strike with several improvements made. With a new grip and updated suppressers, among other changes, it has taken one of Bear's most popular bows to a new level. The single cam technology and engineering from Bear is continuing to climb the ladder over the past few years and their entire line is showing it. It has decent speed for a single cam bow and has a very comfortable brace height creating a nice value package. The Legion has some hand shock, but not enough to make it uncomfortable to shoot. The alluring dual string suppresser style is unique to Bear bows. The Legion accommodates a wide range of shooters, including youth, with all of the available weights and an adjustable draw length with ease. With an MSRP price tag of only $399 this bow should fall within many budgets and satisfy the majority...read full review

Bear Apprentice 2 Review

The Bottom Line: Any willing to learn youth will fit into this bow just right. It is forgiving and gives the realistic feel of shooting a "big" bow. It is light and extremely adjustable to fit any sized youth archer. It a great starting point bow in Bear's line up with it being a little smaller than the Outbreak. It has good speed with the dual cams for shorter lengths and lighter draws. Bears customer service is second to non for any questions, problems, or warranty work that they are more than happy to help with. It is fun to shoot and shouldn't scare any young shooter away. The range of adjustability makes it even easier to like when it can be fit just right. It comes ready to hunt with a Trophy Ridge 3 pin sight, Trophy Ridge Whisker Bisquit rest, arrow quiver, peep sight, and a string loop. The MSRP of $279.99 is pretty good when considering everything that it includes...read full review

Bear Encounter Review

The Bottom Line: If you are a hunter on a budget or at the entry level stage of archery this bow is ideal for you. With it being new to Bear's line up it is probably their most practical bow available. The engineering from Bear, including their single cam technology, is still increasing over the past few years which is evident on the entire line. The entire bow is light and comfortable making it an even better value. The recoil isn't significant enough to make it difficult to shoot. The Encounter would please many shooters with its range of draw weights and ease to adjust. For the price you can't go wrong with a MSRP of just $299. The RTH package is only $399...read full review

Bear Siren Review

The Bottom Line: The Siren has been field tested by women, for women, and delivering what they asked for in a cam, grip, draw cycle, and release. It is designed to work ideal in the hands of top-tier female hunters. Bear technology continues to improve like it has for the last few years now. It's speed is impressive not only for a single cam bow, but for a bow that is built for women makes it even more awesome. It has a good look with the riser and dual string suppressors combined. The subtle pink accents look great and should be attractive to many. It will handle a wide range of sizes and strengths with draw weights of 40 lbs. to 60 lbs. and lengths from 22" to 27". With the ease of adjustment it can be done without any extensive tools or technique. The Bear/Trophy Ridge customer service department is second to none and they really take their time to satisfy the owner. Any serious female archer would love this bow and would be making a mistake to not give it a shot if looking for a new bow...read full review

Bear Mauler Review

The Bottom Line: While the Bear Mauler is without a doubt a bow hunter's rig, it would be good for the recreational shooter as well. Whether you opt for the "ready to hunt" package or you choose to put your own custom accessories on, the Bear Carnage is a very fast, smooth, quiet and nearly vibration free bow with a very affordable price tag. The "ready to hunt" package includes everything you need on the bow for you to just grab your arrows and sight in on the spot. To buy all these separate and put them on this bow, it would cost a considerable amount more. Overall this is one of the most shootable, adjustable and high performance bows for the money of 2011...read full review

Bear Carnage Review

The Bottom Line: With great shootability characteristics and excellent performance, the Bear Carnage is one of the best hunting bows manufactured in 2011. Bear seems to have hit a homerun with this rig. It has all the attributes and features that the modern bow hunter/archer is looking for. With an easily adjustable draw length, excellent shootability characteristics and a low mass weight, the Carnage is capable of yielding fast IBO speeds without generating nearly any noise or vibration. It is a definite upgrade over last year's Attack model. With a draw length range from 25.5 to 30.5 inches and a draw weight range from 40 to 70 pounds there is virtually a set up option for almost anyone...read full review

Bear Attack Review

The Bottom Line: In all the Bear Attack is a very solid option for the archer, which is probably a big reason why Bear kept it in their bow line up for 2011. While being very similar to the Carnage, this rig has a smoother draw than the Carnage while only giving up 5 fps. The Attack can be held at full draw for a good amount of time without arm fatigue which is very helpful on stubborn game while hunting. Speeds, smoothness, accuracy, adjustable draw length and being very comfortable when shot are all very good reasons that make the Attack a very viable choice...read full review
