Fred Bear Grizzly Recurve Bow
My father an avid bow hunter had been telling me for two years not to buy a recurve bow that it would be a waste of money and I would hate it. I am glad I waited and found a bow I enjoy and this bow is great!!! fun just for shooting and I hope to get it out and get my first recurve bow kill this archery season. so far I have been shooting in the yard and I love it.
the only reason I wouldn't recommend this as a gift is that recurves are a more personal type of bow the a compound. They express the owners character and style and because of this need to be selected by the person who is going to own and use it.

Bear Grizzly Recurve bow
I bought mine at a pawn shop in Clovis NM in 1980. still in box. It has given great service, I believe I'm on my 3rd bowstring. I'm not sure how many deer it's accounted for- I quit counting after 5. Ih has a few javelina and coyotes, and without bragging, beheaded quite a few upland game birds, It has taken Oregon rain and Southwest heat with no apparent damage. I do recommend storing it reverse-strung, as this keeps the arms from warping. I have owned a few compounds, but age and severe arthritis won't let me break over the cams. The old Bear, though, is still an easy pull , and deadly accurate. PS I've never used a bow- sight in my life!

I bought the Fred Bear Grizzly after a bad experience with a lower priced recurve. ......You can buy this bow! It's smooth...shoots straight and won't break the bank!

best bow i have had
this bow is amazing, it is very light, shoots fast and accurate, and above all the service i got at the Rossford bass pro was the best i have ever had they knew what they were talking bout, told me that the arrows i was a bout to buy were bad so i did not waste money, and i give them a A+.
