Bear Instinct or Gander series (bowtech)

4 posts in this topic

My son is in the market for a new bow. These are the two he has narrowed it down to. The Fred Bear Instinct or the Gander series made by Bowtech. They are both decent bows. The Gander series seems faster and quieter to me and my brother bought a Bear bow last year and has had it break 2 limbs already. Any help would be great.

I shoot a bowtech tomkat and have nothing but good things to say about it. I bought it last summer and really like it. I don't think you would go wrong with a bow made by bowtech but I have never shot a Fred Bear either.

I have the Bear Truth and have nothing but good things to say about it. Really smooth and very little (if any) hand shock. Bear's new product line is solid for the price tag. Then again Bowtech's line is topshelf for quality and cutting edge advances in overall design. I honestly think you will be happy with either one of the bows. So like it's been said on here many times before, have him shoot both and pick which one feels right to him.

I shoot a Bowtech Tech 29 and I love it. You can't go wrong with a Bowtech. Before the Bowtech I shot a Hoyt and that was a nice bow too but it was too long ATA for me.

      True north, head true west on vermillion and find out for yourself how strong the walleye population is !! DNR stats and numbers are meaningless on that end ,and it is a shame! Oh yeah  trolloni is short hand for TROLL ONLY to catch fish ,cool guy!!

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.
