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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
