Bear Archery; A True American Success
Companies come and go. It’s a fact of life and business. Most businesses will flash in the pan, and experience short-term success in whatever their field. Few companies withstand the test of time. Companies like Winchester firearms, Remington firearms, and Oneida traps have withstood the test of time in their respective markets. Similarly Bear Archery
has provided top-notch archery equipment for nearly 80 years.
Initially founded by archery legend Fred Bear in 1939 after several years of making bows in his spare time, Bear has been at the top of the top archery manufactures ever since. After several moves Bear has landed in Gainesville, Florida today, and spits out quality bows made in the USA. Today it’s hard to browse the Bear product lineup and not find what you are looking for. Churning out compound bows, traditional bows, and also offering youth bows, Bear not only makes these bows to last, but produces them at an affordable price.
One product that has been around for a very long time is the Bear Super Kodiak
. Initially designed and manufactured in 1976, Fred Bear himself used this traditional recurve bow on many of his hunting adventures. It has undergone very few changes since the early days and maintains its classic traditional look. Available in a variety of lengths and draw weights, anybody looking to own a piece of archery history should take a look at this historic bow.
Though this company sticks to its roots, Bear archery also pushes the edge of bow design today. One bow that represents the height of bow technology is the Bear Motive
. This two-cam bow nearly melts arrows, pushing them down range at a blistering 350 fps. Speeds like this prove how capable the engineers at Bear are and their commitment to offering their customers products that rival any other produced today.
Fred Bear probably couldn’t have imagined the innovations his company has made over the years. From one man’s dream to a top bow manufacturer in the United States, Bear Archery deserves a look from anyone considering purchasing a bow in the near future. Not only will you own a great bow, but also own a piece of Papa Bear’s dream as well.
