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 took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
