Bear CarnageBear Attack
Summary review written by our editors.

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...

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...
