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.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
