FRED BEAR PURSUIT Opinions Please
I am looking for an inexpensive good shooting compound bow... they have a good deal at the local sporting goods store here on the fred bear pursuit $149.00 new... is it a good deal? stay away from? I will be using my traditional bow more than this bow.. just curious if its a good starting point
Stay away from the bright light!!! Starting point for what?
hunting, not target shooting or anything. I use my traditional recurve for target... and now hunting this year....not planning on trickin it out with a ton of stuff just a quiver and maybe a sight and arrow rest but thats about it...
back to the top, any help would be appreciated
If you're just hunting deer, it should be fine. You don't need a $700 bow for deer. My dad took his deer with a "buckmasters" bow he bought at wal mart for $200 last year. Even todays cheapest bows far surpass the speed and accuracy of early compound bows which killed countless deer.
In summary, I say go for it. You'll do just fine with that bow.
Not sure on the Pursuit, but I know a couple of guys who have Fred Bears and they like em.
As long as it is set up right for ya (draw length, peepsight etc.) and you are shooting well then go for it.
I bought one on sale for 99.00 bucks and put the smackdown on a doe opening morning!
thanks guys any negatives about the bow?
Iused a Bear Pursuit bow for 5 years. Iused it for deer, hogs, turkey, small game and just about everything you can legally huntfor with a bow.
The bow is fast, acurate and quiet. It is not as smooth drawing or shock free as my mathews but it certainly gets the job done.
using a 380 grn arrow I got 270 fps @ 70lbs with a 28" draw legnth. The Pursuit will get it done.
