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.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
