My Motive 7 and My Agenda 7

I love getting a new bow. I suppose I love the fact that I get to set it up and then I get to shoot it in. I love the excitement that comes with a new bow and the thrill of becoming one with it so that when the moment of truth arrives, I will be ready. I have had the privilege of shooting many new bows in but this last year was especially fun.

As an avid hunter I always set my bows up strictly for hunting. I shoot the exact set up that I am going to hunt with from day one. I shoot only broadheads all year round and even do so in my initial set up. My first Bear Bow was a Bear Archery Motive 7 that I sighted in, in what I thought was record time. I had taken that bow out of the box, set it up, and shot it in from 20 to 80 yards in 45 minutes. This all was done with a hunting set up. This bow was whisper quite, shock free, fast as all get out, and accurate to a degree I had not before experienced.

Setting up and sighting in a new bow is a great way to get to know the bow before you take it into the field.

When my Bear Archery Agenda 7 arrived a few months ago I could hardly wait to get it out the box, set it up, and shoot it in. I eagerly went to work getting it set up. As soon as it was done I walked out to my range at my house and began to shoot. I could not believe what was happening. I was almost expecting that there was no way this bow could be as good as the Motive 7 but I quickly found out I was wrong. I sighted my Agenda 7 in from 20 to 80 yards in 40 minutes. This was a full 5 minutes faster than the ridiculously fast time that I had done so with my Motive 7.

Bear Archery has set out to make the best bows on the market. These two models have proven to demonstrate that they are there. Both bows had absolutely no hand shock, were smooth all the way through release, were extremely quiet, and shot with pinpoint accuracy. I have never picked up a bow and had them ready so quickly. Bear Archery has excelled in its production of these two stealthy bows.

“The first time you draw it back, you’ll feel a grin stretch right across your face. Blink-fast Agenda speed plus a forgiving 7-inch brace make this bow as enjoyable as it is deadly. And it’s got a features list as long as your arm: smooth H13 rotating-module cams matched to Max Pre-Load Quad Limbs, new stronger, lighter riser technology, advanced vibration and sound damping, tight Zero Tolerance limb/pocket fit, versatile 32-inch length, and more. You get the idea. Now try the bow.”
I would highly suggest that if you haven’t shot a Bear Archery bow recently that you do so and do so quickly. These new offerings from Bear Archery will amaze you and will look good doing so. I am convinced that Bear Archery has raised the bar in the archery world and once you shoot one you will quickly agree with me.
