The caliber of a grizzly bear hunting rifle is important because it needs to be powerful enough to take down a large animal. A caliber that is too small may not kill the bear outright, and a caliber that is too large may damage the meat.
A good caliber for grizzly bear hunting is between. 30 and. 375.

Just as Bear claims, It quickly became my go-to bow. Fantastic for instinctive shooting. Really amazing! It seems to just kind of know what I’m aiming at! Also it seems very forgiving: When I let my form get sloppy arrows still usually come off nice and straight.
Very low hand shock for a long bow. Performs well with atypical handling such as inverted (3 fingers over) draw style which is useful for speed archery. Some bows really do not like this, but this one seems to be holding up very well.
Its also extremely light which is great for the field archery course. Though I have used recurves that seem to have slightly more power for the same draw weight,(emphasis on slightly) I still feel like I can reach the further targets with this bow.
The general handling and ultra smooth draw are just so pleasing that I have never been out on the course wishing that I had brought a different bow!.
I have been shooting traditional archery for many years. I have custom made bows also. I received this bow and have been very happy with the craftsmanship and the way it shoots and how it feels in your hands.
Draws smooth and no hand shock and little noise. I am 56 years old and 6’2″ and 30″ draw. This bow draws very comfortable for me. I got a 40lb bow for target shooting and am surprised how fast it shoots compared to my 50lb longbow.
I definitely will tell anyone looking for an affordable longbow of great quality to get one. Made is USA!!.
This 58 AMO recurve with its brown hard-rock maple one piece riser with limbs overlaid with clear maple both backed and faced with high strength black fiberglass. There is a crowned and cut on center arrow shelf that includes leather side plate and bear hair arrow rest above the grip that is cupped with fiberglass.
Really nice bow. love the grip. The grey glass is really nice. Limbs are straight. tiller is good. Shoots arrows fast and accurate. And fairly quite. String quality not so good. loops are the same size really small.
Top loop should be bigger to slide down the limb while stringing. Looks like the limb tips where the tip over lays meet the fibre glass was sanded a little to deep as you can see in the pictures. Almost back down to the wood core.
Excellent for beginner and more advanced archers. Great for both hunting and target practice. Features:Superb accuracy and durability,Great arrow speeds – Resistant to all types of weather – A work of art, has been in use by thousands of archers worldwide for many years – Ready for shooting out of the box – No need for additional accessories.
I was excited about getting back into shooting archery after 20 years But I wanted to challenge myself. So I decided traditional archery was what I was looking for. I decided the bear super grizzly recurve 50# was the bow for me.
After receiving it I went right to shooting it. Shoots smooth and pretty quiet. 50# might be a bit heavy for a beginner like me to start with but I am getting better after a few weeks. I’m excited to see where this takes me shooting again.
I really like the smooth clean look of the bow. Excellent craftsmanship. Great feel in the hand.
I have been into traditional archery for about 10 years now. I have shot a bunch of different recurves, both borrowed from friends and of my personal collection. I’ve owned my Super Grizzly for about 6 years now, 55#.
I do not claim to be an expert, just a guy with a little experience with different bows. I am comparing this bow to to the ones I’ve shot, which are Bear Grizzly, Bear Kodiak, Bear Kodiak Magnum (I do not recommend this one for guys with 30″ draws), Samick Sage, PSE Coyote, and a Hoyt take down (don’t remember the model, it was a friend’s).
Compared to the rest, the Bear Super Grizzly felt the smoothest to draw, very quiet when tuned, durable, accurate, and the finish wares well and reveals a beautiful finish. Specific comparisons: -The Bear Grizzly: The Super Grizzly is more forgiving and smoother on the draw.
My Old Grizzly suffered a little limb twist in the same time and conditions that I have owned my Super Grizzly. I think the glass on the belly of the Super Griz helps prevent this also. It’s still as straight as it was out of the box.
-Bear Kodiak: While the Kodiak’s added length provided a more comfortable draw hand, it did not feel as fast or as smooth as my Super Grizzly. -Bear Kodiak Magnum: WAAAAAAY too short for guys with longer draw lengths.
Not a fan at all. -Samick and PSE Coyote: These two are not built to the same quality control, nor fit and finish. Again, not as smooth and comfortable as the Super Griz. I felt a big difference in quality when shooting.
-My buddy’s Hoyt: A bigger price tag for what, to me, boils down to high speed looking aesthetics. The Hoyt shot well and comfortably enough, but not twice the price tag worth.
This is my fourth Fred Bear bow and it was the most expensive. I am comparing it to a Grizzly, AuSable, and Montana. Now I know why the 59′ Kodiak is the most expensive of the four. It is a true gem of a bow.
Light weight, beautifully crafted, a pleasure to shoot, fast, and hard hitting. I suspect this will prove to be my favorite. Five thumbs up for Fred Bear Archery for bringing back this classic recurve.
This beautiful two piece riser construction is made of black dymond wood and features a red accent stripe the limbs are fascor powered and backed and faced with high strength black fiberglass. The tips are hand crafted with layered red dymond wood and black fiberglass that allows for use of today`s more modern bow string materials.
AMO bow length is 58. Crowned, and cut past center arrows shelf with the Bear hair rest and classic high leather side plate included. Comes complete with a Dynaflight 97 Flemish string in red and black included.
I bought in early summer to have enough practice time before whitetail archery season. I had months of shooting almost daily. very impressed with every aspect of this bow; from the looks, to the smooth shooting, and it was almost completely silent when shot.
I would encourage anyone to this product. I have always shot Bear products and really didn’t expect anything less.
I give this bow 2 stars based mainly on the customer service and the quality issues I had with 2 of these bows. First of all, I had the bow shipped to the nearest store to me which is 3hrs away because I wanted someone in the archery department to string the bow and check the actual poundage on it, because I know that sometimes recurves can be off quite a few pounds than what they are actually labeled.
I picked the bow up from customer service and asked an employee in archery to do this for me. He looked at me like I was stupid and was very reluctant to do it. Another employee was with him and said “Just do it for him.
” The first employee took my bow into the back room and came out with it strung. Come to find out, the employee didn’t even check it on a scale, he just drew it back himself. The employee went to unstring it for me and started to do the step-through method.
I had to take the bow from him and use a stringer they had hanging on a wall to unstring it because the employee did not know how to use it. So after this fiasco, I got the bow home and was looking it over a few days later and noticed a crack in the handle along the red inlay near the rest.
I contacted customer service and a very nice lady ordered me a replacement. However, when this new bow arrived there was a crack in the same spot as the previous bow. I did notice that the serial numbers of the two bows were sequential, so maybe Bear just had a bad run of bows that day.
The bow does look and feel nice, if you can get one that isn’t defective. It draws back pretty smooth too. I recommend this bow if you can get one without the same issues that I had. Both bows went back and now I have arrows for a bow that I don’t have.
The grizzly recurve is finished in stain gloss to protect the bow and provide a shield to minimize dampness and abrasion. A dependable dacron string makes the 58 grizzly a tough, economical working man’s bow.
The classic grizzly design has not changed in 50 years. Includes cut-past-center shelf covered in bear hair.
I own several Fred Bear bows including Grizzly, Ausable and Montana. I knew the Kodiak is a top of the line traditional bow so I wanted one for my collection. As soon as I received it, I headed off to my local archery range and gave it a go.
OMG immediately comes to mind. It shoots way above its 45# designation. Smooth, fast and really hard hitting. I couldn’t believe how powerful it actually felt compared to all of my other bows. Immediately became my favorite.
Now I know why this bow gets rave ratings. Amazingly beautiful and functional in every way.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, Bear Archery produced the ALASKAN – a bow with performance the industry had never seen at an unbeatable value. For 2022, the ALASKAN returns with a spin. This technology and performance packed 32” axle-to-axle bow comes equipped with an all-new DHC hybrid cam.
The DHC hybrid cam system features a relaxed 80% let off without sacrificing Bear’s signature draw cycle smoothness. The ALASKAN was designed to deliver increased stability and class leading performance for the hardcore bowhunter.
The new KillerWave in-limb dampeners assist in eliminating vibration and improving accuracy in each shot. The 2022 ALASKAN offers respectable arrow speeds up to 335 FPS and an incredible amount of adjustability in draw length from 25.
Purchased this bow after not shooting about ten years since high school. Has the same feel as my older Hoyt Xt2000 from 2001. Does have a smooth draw and flat backwall. has been quiet for the time being.
The most convenience from this bow is probably the option to change draw lengths easily. The rth package is okay. Can’t do much with 4 pins, the stabilizer is real basic and needs an upgrade, the strings are frayed already after 2 weeks, the peep hole is extremely large so there’s no consistency with shooting, the hand grip is fairly small and awkward to hold steady, the d loop is really thin which made me switch releases.
Although Trophy Ridge products make this bow a good looking package it’s not quite the package needed for ready to go into the woods. Going to see if Cabela’s will take back as easily as they force you out the door with it.
For the money I rather buy a bow with nothing and create my own build.
The Refine EKO is my favorite bow to date. The Refine is built with top-tier specs for a really reasonable price. I got my Refine on a Thursday and took it turkey hunting on Saturday. I have literally never done that with a bow (owned less than 48 hours and taking it hunting) but the Refine tuned exceptionally well and with the Trophy Ridge React technology, I had it hitting where I was aiming in no time.
Although I didn’t get a turkey within 48 hours of owning it, I did knock down my second bird of the spring with the Refine. I’ve shot 3D with it and scored well (won the Advanced Bowhunter Class in it’s first shoot of the season) and will have it in the Iowa timber this fall.
The 33″ ATA is perfect – it’s easily maneuverable while hunting but very forgiving for long-distance practice or 3D. It shoots flat and consistent – I can’t recommend this bow enough. If you’re in the market for a bow, shoot this one and you’ll likely be taking it home with you.
Before I bought this bow I have owned two hoyt bows. The Faktor 30 and the Ignite. I decided this year a couple days before season it was tile for something new. I was looking for a mid-priced bow that had a good quality and feel.
I did my research on Bear bows and looked at their new 2022 lineup and saw this one. Had good reviews so I decided to give it a try. Ordered it through Amazon on sale for $391. Paired it w/ a trophy ridge one pin & 6” stabilizer, along with a QAD dropaway.
Just got back from the shop getting everything set up and shot it for the first time. This thing is dead quiet and it shoots quick. I love this bow. More than both of the Hoyt’s I have owned in the past.
The Faktor was a 1000$+ bow. If your thinking about getting this one, you should. The only very slight complain I have is the paint finish. I have a few super small spots where it has chipped a little but you can barely tell whatsoever.
We will see how the finish does in the future. I’ve never owned a bear bow but I am utterly impressed to say the least. I may stick with them forever.
WizKids Deep Cuts Miniatures come with highly-detailed figures, primed and ready to paint out-of-the-box. Fully compatible with Acrylicos Vallejo paints, these fantastic miniatures include deep cuts for easier painting.
I was long discouraged by one of the previous reviews, which says this is “medium size creature with a large base”. Mainly, because ‘large’ or ‘medium’ are categories that can include a whole lot of different sized creatures, and I was afraid this minotaur will come too small.
But I decided to give this miniature a try, and was not disappointed. Firstly, I am going to use this miniature in various D&D games. In 5e, the listed height of a minotaur is 6-7 feet, a bit higher than a human.
Monster Manual gives ‘large’ as a size for NPC minotaur, while both Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica and Mystic Odysseys of Theros gives us ‘medium’ as the size for PC minotaurs, likely for balance issues.
In 4e, NPC minotaurs were predominantly medium, some of NPC ones were large. PC ones, again, were medium. As you can see by the picture, this minotaur is definately bigger than average human, and would be actually even higher without the dynamic pose.
I’ve decided to glue it on a 32mm base, so both miniatures on a photo are standing on top of such bases, to provide better perspective. It sticks out of base boundaries a bit, but this way, it will be still possible to pass as a PC medium minotaur and (almost) fit into one square, or actually be planted on a larger 50mm base that is included (left one on the photo), and represent the NPC minotaur of large size.
So I would not call the miniature a disappointment. To me, it is actually of a dual purpose – the size of the miniature itself is quite sufficient, and makes it possible to represent both D&D size categories using just diffrent-sized bases.
I love this mini and can’t wait to paint it. The quality of the mini itself is superb. My beef is with Home Essentials Direct Marketplace. The item listing stated “”Damaged box. “” I take damaged box to mean a damaged but unopened item.
I understand that many consumers will return a damaged but unopened item believing a damage box means damaged goods. I am willing to accept minor damage to an item if the listing states “”damaged box.
“” However, I do expect damage to be minimal at worst and that all pieces of the item will be present. The box was so badly torn it was clear the item has been opened and was in fact an open box item.
That’s a horse of a different color; if I buy something listed as open box I know I am taking the chance of moderate damage and missing piece. I would not have paid what I did for open box on an item like this.
Thankfully there was no damage to the item I could find, and all parts are present except the insert that came with the item (I have seen unboxing videos of the pre-painted version and know what was supposed to be in there).
Please list items correctly to be fair to potential consumers and ensure they are paying a fair price. For the risk I took in buying this, I actually overpaid.
The Barbarian with the bear cape has a huge problem with the mould lines. The one others talk about goes across the face, which I honestly thought was supposed to be a helmet with visor, the sort the Norse wore back in the day.
So that one I could hide away by painting what are esentially his eyes and brows as metal. While this is a relatively easy “fix”, I know my preference for helmeted characters is not the norm, which makes this a huge glaring issue on the model.
His hand, however, is completely off center. Not even mould line, it looks like a poor glue job that results in a disconnected left hand. The bare headed model (not the bear-headed one) has a few extremely obvious gaps but nothing as glaring as a head cut in two.
Reason I’m still giving it 3 stars is mostly because this model is almost mind boggingly cheap for the quality. With the exception of the mould lines the details are crisp and clean, things such as belt buckles standing out from what is around it.
Overview: In 1966 Bear introduced the bow they said could not be made, a 48 inch hunting bow proudly called the Bear Super Magnum 48. Over 45 years later it remains a proven product for those who need a short hunting bow no matter the situation.
This bow is built for hunting out of ground blinds, tree-stands, or the perfect bowfishing bow. Features: Riser made from African Paduk Limbs laminated with clear maple, backed and faced with high strength black fiberglass Tips handcrafted with layered black and white fiberglass 48 inch AMO Length Center crowned arrow shelf with Bear Hair Rest and leather side plate Draw Weight: 35lbs, 40lbs, 45lbs, 50lbs, and 55lbs Hand: Left Hand, Right Hand Dynaflight 97 Flemish String Package Content: 1 x Bear Archery SuperMag 48 inch Bow.
I just purchased this Bear Super Magnum 48″ in 50#. Wow, what a beautiful bow! This is the new 2013 model, made of African Paduk and black fiberglass. This bow, once tuned and using PROPER arrows, shoots like a dream! Very accurate and great cast / power for 50#, which when combined with a heavy razor sharp arrow, is more than enough for any big game in North America.
Unfortunately, this bow has drawn a few bad reviews, by people (most likely novices), who either dry fired it, or used ultra light weight arrows (essentially dry firing it!), and managed to brake it.
I draw 29″, and with heavy arrows at 20 yards, see NO DIFFERENCE in accuracy between this little 48″ Super Mag and my 60″ AMO and 62″ AMO recurves. Is the Super Mag a target or 3-D bow. no. It is a HUNTING bow for tree stands, thick cover and blinds.
This is why it was designed back in 1965, as a HUNTING BOW. Some claim the Super Mag “stacks”, and you get “finger pinch” if you draw over 27″ or so. BS!!! As I said, I draw 29″, use a glove and have no issues.
The Super Mag, like most ANY properly built recurve, properly tuned and with the correct arrows, is very accurate. Bear has a top of the line product here, with a full warranty. Don’t dry fire it or use light arrows, take care of it and it should last a long time!.
Well crafted and great looking bow. #1 reason I purchased this bow was its short length. Still delivers arrows downrange with plenty of punch. Strange I assumed a small bow would be somehow less powerful even if rated at 60#.
This Bear Grizzly Longbow Bow is designed to build the archer’s confidence by its pinpoint accuracy and power. The 58-inch high-performance length will comfortably handle personal draw lengths of 27/28/29 inches.
Recieved display model. No string, no owners manual. Bow wrapped in bubble wrap with price sticker on lower limb. It took over 30 minutes to remove price sticker to avoid scratching the limb finish. I gave the bow 2 stars because it looks like it is made to bear archery standards, but unable to use until I receive the bow string I had to order.
This Bear Grizzly Longbow Bow is designed to build the archer’s confidence by its pinpoint accuracy and power. The 58-inch high-performance length will comfortably handle personal draw lengths of 27/28/29 inches.
Standard draw weights of 50/55/60 lbs deliver hours of shooting enjoyment.
I haven’t even owned this bow for 2 years, and I drew it back and the limb snapped at the base of the riser. I have a 30″ draw length, and never felt the bow stack. It was purchased new from 3 Rivers Archery, and has only been strung/unstrung properly, using a stringer.
It has a 50# draw weight, and I have only shot 500 grain arrows through it. I am a loyal customer of Bear archery products, but I believe there are some quality control issues in Florida. I would not advise purchasing this bow if you have a draw length greater than 28″.
I like short bows and this new Bear super mag is a good bow. The bow was easy to tune and very smooth to draw. I have an older Super Mag and it is a lot heavier and has wider limbs plus the grip is deeper and more like a high wrist.
The new one has a grip like a medium wrist and is more open between the grip and window. The older one rides on my index finger knuckle and after a while of shooting will start to brother me, not the new one.
Overview: Nineteen sixty-seven marked the end of an era and the beginning of a new one at Bear Archery, after 17 years of production the Super Kodiak replaced the very popular Kodiak line of bows. The same craftsmanship has stayed true over the past 45 years making this bow a legend just like the man who once mastered it.
Fred used this model bow for many years on quests for African lion, cape buffalo, Alaskan polar bear and the British Columbia grizzly bear. Still to this day the Super Kodiak is one of the smoothest, finest shooting bows available.
Features: Brown and Black Dymondwood 60 inch AMO length.
The Bear Archery Kodiak Magnum Recurve is a bowhunter’s dream due to its short 52 AMO and ease of maneuverability. The nimble, versatile design struck a chord with hunters who value its blend of agility and power.
The Kodiak Mag has a single piece shedua riser featuring an inlaid black stripe is capped with black and white fiberglass and sports limbs overlaid with clear maple cores, backed and faced with high strength arctic grey fiberglass.
The tips are handcrafted and layered with black and white fiberglass for added durability. FeaturesClassic look featuring shedua riser with inlaid black strip and arctic grey glass limbs Compact designDynaflight string Cut-on center with arrow shelf and Bear hair rest and leather side plate SKU – 59420612345.
This magnificent 60″ recurve features a crowned, cut-past-center arrow shelf with Bear Hair mat and leather side plate. Matched gray and brown hardwood laminates give the Super Kodiak one terribly sweet look.
But don’t let its looks fool you. Fred used this recurve to take tigers, lions, Cape buffalo and polar bears. Now with FastFlight string!.
After 45 years in production the Super Mag 45 still remains a proven product. This beautiful one piece bow was built for hunting in ground blinds, tree stands or perfect for a bow fishing bow set up.
The riser construction is made of African Paduk wood and has a full fisted grip section. The limbs are laminated with clear maple and backed and faced with high strength black fiberglass. The tips are hand crafted with layered with black and white fiberglass that allows for use of today’s more modern bow string materials.
AMO bow length is 48in. Center crowned, arrow shelf with the Bear hair rest and leather side plate included. Comes complete with a Dynaflight 97 Flemish string.
This bow is much faster than my Montana and old Grizzly. It took a lot stiffer arrow than my other 50 pound bows. I find the bow real easy to torque so I have to hold it much softer than my other bows.
I had a difficult time tuning this thing. I finally had to put a weather rest on it and that did the trick (It’s the only bow that I don’t shoot off the shelf). The rest kept the quills from cutting my hand.
I really like this bow and it will zip an arrow. However, keep in mind you have to have solid form or this sassy little thing will not hit the mark. I have a 26. 5 draw so there was no stacking or finger pinch issue for me.
It’s maybe not the best bow for a beginner such as a Grizzly would be. It is very small and light, not the brute, workhorse as my Montana, but that’s what I was after.
Actually lighter that I expected. Made this purchase to replace a kodiak mag I learned to hunt with many years ago. I may buy a kodiak yet and probably would if the color choices of old were available.
Grayling green not a bad color. Just prefer a more natural finish. Won’t make a difference in performance. Shooting everyday and enjoying it very much. Not as good as I was 40 years ago but like anything takes practice.
I received my Bear super Mag 48 50# two days ago, I was shocked how light it was compared to my Sammick sage(s). It literally felt like a child’s bow when I first picked it up. Went through the standard set up,limb tip silencers, fur string silencers and a natural turkey feather rest, Set the nock point and brace height and took it out to the back yard.
I have a shorter draw(27″) and at first I was concerned with coming to full draw as the bow was so light, but Man once I saw how those arrows rocketed out of this little powerhouse I was impressed. The targets only 15 yards out and it was dark by then and I was shooting from a lighted porch, by the second flight of 3 arrows I was slamming the bulleye.
four inch groups @ 15 yards in the dark from a bow I haven’t even tuned yet? Sweet! I’m gonna love still hunting with this light little beast. I get to shoot this Baby in the daylight tomorrow and start really tuning her up.
I can see issues with longer draws (28+), shooting light arrows , or not using a stringer(the limbs have a heavy re curve to them to get this bow size down), and a High (8-9″ ) Brace height which I’m not used to.
I actually did notice minor limb warp on the bow out of the box, around 1/8″-1/4″, but I’ll see if that settles out. Reported the limb warp to 3 rivers and got an instant response on how to massage the limbs back into alignment with minor twists.
Great service as always, however we will see how it works out. All in all this is a great shooter, I haven’t felt any torque issues, stack or finger pinch (3 under shooter). The bow is the reddish brown as pictured In advert, not a black as seemingly implied, also the quiver inserts seem to be Bear proprietary, not the standard AMO placement.
This is a great bow for shooting in a kneeling position,in a blind or from a stand. I’d have rated this 5 out of 5 if it wasn’t for the slight limb twists right out of the box.
64″ AMO length Includes Dacron Flemish string. The Montana longbow was first introduced in the late 90s and has become a very popular addition to an already proven lineup. The bow’s slightly reflexed design, tapered limb lamination, and new slimmer tips make this longbow big on performance and value.
The black Hard-Rock Maple riser features limbs overlaid with clear white maple and backed and faced with high strength black fiberglass. The tips are handcrafted and layered with black and white fiberglass.
The leather shoot off the shelf? arrow rest allows for clean arrow flight.
First off, I didnt buy this bow from 3R – I got it used from a private party. Mine is 50# but I probably pull a lil more at my draw of about 29. 5″. I own a samick discovery in 50# as well and while it is a fast shooter and accurate as hell, I still prefer my montana.
Does it vibrate? Yes. Is is sort of a lobber? Yes. But it is a longbow with maple limbs. I have shot longbow most of my life so these things are nothing to me but they may be a disappointment to someone coming from another platform.
EASY to dial in, i can achieve pretty much nail driving accuracy anywhere from 30-70yards with a 500spine or 400spine arrow. wood feels the best off the shelf with this bow but for durability and consistency sake i usually shoot carbons.
I pack this bow with me for a week at a time when i pack up and head out to the job, and I am never sorry to have it with me. Shooting almost daily in high winds, heavy rain, and cold conditions here in PNW does not really phase it.
I use paracord string silencers and a cat whisker below it and it is whisper quiet. surf wax on the string because i usually dont have beeswax lol and the string is fine. it is not the TRASH bear string however.
the grip is trash, take it off. Now, when I say it is not really phased by foul weather, damp, and cold, i dont mean it is impervious. I will say that if I am just getting dumped on for an extended period of time and cant find cover, i do notice a slower shot.
But that is my fault not the bow’s. probably my string being wet, and the feathers being soaked doesnt help anything, but when the weather is dry, it will shoot like normal again. I have not experienced any of the quality issues I have read about in finish and such, fingers crossed.
But those will be my fault not the bow’s at this point. Bottom line, if you want a fast shooting “longbow” dont get this bow. It is plenty powerful, but there are others out there that will send em down range much quicker if thats what you want.
This was my second bear Montana I also bought a 40# Montana for my wife. I personally shoot a 45# and a 55# I have shot compound pretty much as long as I could walk. Played with a recurve some years ago and enjoyed it.
I basically have gotten disgusted with the compound industry. I have spent I don’t know how many thousands of dollars on compound bows and all the bells and whistles. I wanted to get into trad to simplify my bow hunting.
From the first day out with the Montana I found the fun I had lost in my shooting. I wanted an affordable yet capable bow and went with the bear due to it being made in the USA. I am very pleased with the bow it does everything I need it to do.
It is a little on the slow side but fine for the Kentucky whitetails I chase. I harvested my first trad deer this year with the Montana. A year and a half old 6 point. It is now the pride of my trophy room even though it is the smallest buck.
I would definitely recommend the bear Montana for the price it is a good longbow.
I bought this bow about a year ago and it is one of the best Traditional American LongbowI that I own. I own several new and older classic traditional Bear Archery bows. The Montana shoots great, is accurate and fun but make sure you are wearing an armguard.
Only reason I did not give it a 5 Star rating is because the leather wrap and string it comes with are kind of cheap and cheesy. Bear Archery bows need to come with better quality strings like they use to for the price you pay! Otherwise swap out the string and maybe replace the leather handgrip! Again, fantastic bow!.
Bear Archery’s Legit is designed for all ages and skill levels with wide-ranging, adjustable draw length and peak draw weight. All adjustments are made using an Allen wrench, without the need for a bow press.
This package includes Trophy Ridge accessories including a 4-pin sight, 5-spot quiver, whisker biscuit, no-tie peep sight & D-loop. The Legit features a dual cam system that provides a smooth draw cycle.
The caliber of a bullet is important for grizzly bear hunting because a large, powerful animal like a grizzly bear can be difficult to take down with a smaller caliber bullet. A larger caliber bullet will have more stopping power and is more likely to penetrate the thick hide and muscle of a grizzly bear.
While a smaller caliber bullet may be able to kill a grizzly bear, it is more likely to simply wound the animal, which can be very dangerous for the hunter.
