They seem to have a decent marketing presence. Realtree, Whitetail Properties, and Major League Bowhunter shoot their bows. Are they good or bad? Why don't people talk about them?

Bear has been making a bow for a VERY long time. There is not a discussion about the evolution of bow hunting that can take place without mentioning Fred Bear. To this day shooters are compared to him and his bows. You do not make it the archery business this long making junk. And the biggest reason you probably don't hear a lot of talk about bear archery is that they are like a lot of other companies out there, when you make a good product you don't need millions of dollars spent in advertising.

I understand the legacy. I have my dad's old Bear Whitetail 2. I just don't know anyone who shoots one, and I don't hear them mentioned when bows are brought up (talking about new bows here).

I like them I think they shoot pretty good and I think the are an overall very good bow. but for me personally I just fell in love with hoyt they fit me the best and 2nd the elite. but I like the bear line just for me I found others that fit me personally better. i would shoot them and see how they feel to you.

Here's my opinion and it's just my opinion on why you don't here much talk about em. Bear has long been a meat and potatoe bow for the working people. They don't have the celebrity exposure as most of the big names do, and we pay for that. And, I'm not downing any bow maker, have you notice how some such as Matthews and bowtech make what is considered lower end bows but under a different name, but bear doesn't. And I wonder about those who make something for the working people and for what ever reason do not put their name on it.

Cool. I'm not in the market for a new bow. I'm perfectly happy with my Monster. I was just curious.

I know around 5-7 years ago they were having alot of quality issues ,
But I have to say I was really impressed with the agenda models and wouldn't think twice about shooting them . Really good shooting bow and built solid .

I like a lot of their bows, the Truth 2 is one of the top 5 bows I have ever shot. I have a Bowtech now, but my first compound was a Whitetail 2, wouldn't hesitate to buy another Bear.

I first had an Attack, Excellent shooting bow. I am now shooting a Carnage. Great Bow. Bear top of the line series are great bows. Shoot one. You will see. I was a Mathews man but Bear Bows shoot better for me.

I had an Attack as well and to be honest it was one of my fav bows I've owned over time. Shot great and handled well, and i was very consistent with it. Liked it better then the hoyt and mathews bows i had after it. Had a good draw cycle and a good back wall. Customer service was very good as well. I had the draw stops wearing out 2x on it and when i called they just sent me 4 new ones for free no questions asked.
