I bought a new instinct this year since it was in my price range and it is a very smooth shooting bow. Bear sometimes gets a bad rep but they have excellent bows for decent prices. Shoot until you find one that feels good not just a name. Mine could have had any brand on it and I would have bought it.

I am not going to buy a new bow for a few years but I know they will be my first choice.

If I shoot one I would want to buy it so my wife forbids me to shoot anything but my bow, I like her so I have to listen for a few years at least... grin.gif

Just read a review in Field and Stream and they had the Fred Bear Instinct in their line-up.

Here is a quote taken from the article:

Quote:

This is a good choice for the crackpot few who want a bow to hunt deer with rather than to show off in the parking lot.

I have the Bear Truth and like it a lot. It's very fast and has little hand shock. I found a great deal searching craig's.

I just got back from shooting the Instinct at Gander. I like it, and for the price you can't beat it. I'm new to bow hunting so I'm really watching price.

The one thing I need to know is does the axel to axel length really make a difference? I like the short ones but they dont look big enough. Do you know what I mean?

I bought a new "Bear Code" in September. Hunted 25 minutes, one shot, one 7 pointer. Shoots great, very happy with the bow.

I'm almost 6'3", and the axle to axle lenge was a concern for me at first, too. But after I shot the Truth at 33", all my concerns were eliminated.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
