Bear Bounty Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Bounty is a great packaged bow for those wanting a Ready to Hunt package for $599. For those not needing the package, there may be other options in the $600 range since the added cost of the accessories in not needed. Regardless, the Bounty is a nice bow for female archers with decent performance, and an emphasis on simplicity. The Bear Bounty will not be on the cover of magazines for cutting edge technology, but it does everything very well and should make a lot of shooters very happy...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 Cruzer a looker for anyone wanting to get started in the archery world. Shooters that are done growing may benefit from a bow that is designed with a smaller adjustability range. However, those with growing left to do will benefit a great deal from having a bow that can grow with them. The Bear Cruzer has the potential to be the only bow a shooter ever owns...read full review

Bear Arena 34 Review

The Bottom Line: Bear Archery has created another exceptional product in the Arena 34. On paper, the bow matches or exceeds what most shooters are interested in when thinking about a longer axel to axel hunting bow. When favoring in the feel of the H15 cam system and its many adjustments to give the bow some personal tweaks, the Bear Arena 34 is worth a look for anyone wanting a new hunting bow. For $899, the bow is priced with the industry's top of the line bows, but the price tag is a bit hard for some shooters to swallow. The strings are not bad quality, but they will take a few shots to completely settle down without the peep wanting to twist. After the initial break in period though, shooter should be good for a while. The bottom line is that the Arena 34 is a nice offering for those on the market for a longer hunting bow...read full review

Bear Arena 30 Review

The Bottom Line: Bear has combined performance, adjustability, and a compact design into a really nice looking Arena 30. The specifications on this bow are great, and the feel on the shot matches. The strings did seem to take some time settling into position, but the bow shot great and felt good. The $899 price tag is competitive for a bow of this caliber, but it does not make the price any easier to swallow. The Arena 30 does a lot of things really well. Those interested in a shorter compact bow, owe it to themselves to give the Arena 30 a fair shot at being their next hunting bow...read full review

Bear Tremor Review

The Bottom Line: Bear has always done a great job offering bows for everyone in the market to purchase a new bow. They especially excel at offering shooters the most for their money when purchasing their budget friendly models. The Tremor is a fantastic single cam shooter with a lot to offer shooters of all abilities and experience. Hunters will love the smooth draw cycle and forgiveness from the 33-inch axel to axel bow, and the extra couple hundred dollars saved off the MSRP compared to other models with similar specifications will go a long way in helping to outfit the Tremor with top of the line accessories. Shooters interested in getting a lot of bow for a reasonable price, should give the Tremor a test shot...read full review

Bear Traxx Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Traxx is a great bow with it being pretty difficult to find any major flaws with. Bear has always done well producing bow models that fit a large variety of customer needs. Bear designed the Traxx to be the best bang for the buck so to speak. They incorporated as many new technologies as possible while still being able to maintain a lower than flagship price tag without sacrificing much performance. Shooters needing to have the latest and greatest equipment may not be interested in the Traxx. However, for hundreds less than the Bear flagship models, and minimal sacrifice in performance, the Traxx deserves a serious test shoot. Ultimately, the final decision will be based on personal preference, but this bow should make the short list of those to try from Bear...read full review

Bear Crux Review

The Bottom Line: Bear Archery products has always offered a wide range of bows with differing price points in an effort to best meet the needs of their customers. The Bear Cruz offers a lot to shooters looking at a new bow under $500. Those interested in a compact designed starter bow may be hard pressed to find a better value. The Crux offers decent performance, a forgiving brace height, and can be outfitted for only $550. Nothing about the Bear Crux will be industry leading, nor top of the line, but at a $449 bare bow price tag no one should expect that. For those with a smaller budget, or someone just wanting to get started, the Crux really is a great option...read full review

Bear Venue Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Venue is the only higher end single cam offering from Bear, although its performance is similar to some of their dual cam models. The feel of the Venue is great, and the performance is acceptable for a big game hunting bow. The $849 price tag may be too steep for some, considering this price point will get shooters about anything on the market. The strings have also been a weak point on the Venue with some recorded twist issues. With that being said, shooters wanting the reliability of a single cam bow backed by one of the oldest names in archery, the Venue is tough to beat. The forgiveness and absolute dead in hand feel is very easy to get used to...read full review

Bear Attitude Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Attitude is a well designed bow that has some nice specifications. For shooters just getting back into archery, or those not wanting to make a huge investment, the Bear Attitude is a great option. For those shooters wanting a high end model with the latest archery technology, the Bear Attitude will be a bit of a let down. For a shorter bow, the Attitude holds well on target, draws great, and shoots a bit over 300 feet per second all for under $400. The value is great on the Bear and the bow will preform for a long time. However, this is an entry level bow, and may not meet the needs of everyone wanting a short, lightweight hunting bow. Those on a budget will be able to purchase the Attitude and set it up with top of the line accessories and have less money in the entire set up than if they were to purchase a flagship model. The Bear Attitude does everything well, but it does not lead any category...read full review

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 Finesse Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Finesse is the new replacement for the Home Wrecker. It is designed with the female archer in mind and offers her an excellent and affordable option to shoot. The rig comes in a Realtree APG camo finish with pink accents. This rig is built on a strong machined aluminum riser with Bear's Flared Quad limb and an FH1 solo cam system. With a 28 5/8" ATA and a 7" brace height, this bow pumps out an arrow at an IBO of 285 fps. The Finesse also comes in two max draw weights: 40# and 50#.The rig is priced in the lower end of compound bows, making it an affordable option, especially for the beginner or the archer on a budget. The grip for this bow has been slightly redesigned so that it puts the hand in a more natural position to prevent torque. With the addition of a stabilizer, this bow will have no noticeable vibration for the shooter and will shoot well for years to come...read full review

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 Rumor Review

The Bottom Line: The Bear Rumor is the new in the Bear lineup for 2014. It is marketed as a high-end, high-performance rig specifically for the ladies. It is smooth, quiet, and accurate, and will please all the lady archers. With a 30 1/4" ATA, 6.5" brace height, and a mere 3.6 pounds, this rig will follow the female archer anywhere she wishes to take it. The rig comes in a Realtree Max1 or Shadow finish and is a very nice looking bow. The pink accents set it apart from the rest. The bow is very strong and offers the shooter a choice of three peak weight limb sets and a dual cam system that is easily adjustable to fit her perfectly. It offers decent speed, based on test shots, but is not going to move at lightning speed. The rig is priced in the middle of the compound bow market, and is about average for pricing of all compound bows, but a little high for bows designed for women...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
