Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by plumbercrackus very impressed,initially had a mc phearson eliminator since 94. with bursitis in my right shoulder I had to hang up my bow 6 years ago. I wanted to get back to archery so I started researching single cam bows. the first time I pulled this bow back at 70 lbs..i was amazed at the smooth draw and 80% let off. this bow was extremely comfortable to shoot ,and lightning fast. I had a 2" group at 20 yds. the first two shots!!.this don't seem much ,but for not shooting for 6 years this was fantastic for an un fine tuned bow. I purchased the bow only,and will use my drop zone rest and toxonic sight.on this bow. will post more reviews later March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Liketohuntalot Best purchase ever This is a good quality bow I was nervous when I bought it because it was my first bear bow but it turned out to be the best bow I ever bought every time I go hunting I take this bow February 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GWfordeer New vs Old I was pleasantly pleased with the craftsmanship of this bow. Having owned one of the first Bear compound bows some 30 years ago, I was impressed. Bear still makes a great product! Haven't shot it yet but I am sure it will be great. Looked at a lot of different bows and I don't think you can go wrong with this one. You don't have to spend lots of money to have a good bow! December 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by burntmedics Great bow, great price! I researched a lot of bows before settling on the Bear Encounter. My Bass Pro bow shop had one left and I snatched it up. The smooth draw and lack of "creep" make this bow a pleasure to shoot. My friend was amazed at how quiet it is. The bow tech worked very hard and did an excellent job with the set up. I'm transitioning from a recurve to a compound and Bass Pro made it easy. Buy this bow; you won't regret it! November 11, 2012

A:hopefully you already figured this out and got in the woods in time to smoke some whitetail, but your arrow depends on your draw weight. Arrows will say on the box 300, 400, 450 etc. those grains are different to accommodate different draw lbs. If you're pulling between 55 and 70 lbs use the 400's otherwise lower or raise your grain accordingly. Happy Hunting. P.S. Carbon, Carbon, Carbon!! stay away from aluminum arrows for durability sake
A:There's no such thing as a 'practice arrow' so any arrow will be good for hunting. Just make sure you practice with the arrow first so you're used to the way it flies, aka, the weight. Make sure the arrow is appropriate for your draw & draw weight as well. Other than that, it's the broadheads that will make the difference.
Details:I'm looking for my first bow, but don't want a youth bow...
A:With three draw weight ranges to choose from, you should be able to find one that suits your purpose. I've got a bad shoulder and went with the 50 to 60 pound draw. Believe me, it will do the job.
A:i think the encounter by bear is a good choice for a first bow. its super easy to draw back and its cheap enough that i wont break you
