|Much More Heat!
So much for those soft-cycle bows with lazy IBO Speeds. Bear goes all in with the new H13 Hybrid Cam system. The stroke is reasonable, with smooth transitions and plenty of useful let-off, but make no mistake - this is an aggressive platform. If you need your bow to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling ... this is not the bow for you. This bow is ferocious!
|Here's something different for 2014. We don't normally buy bows in special camo patterns, but our staff went nuts over the new Bear Motive 6 in Realtree AP Snow. We can't really say how or why this combination is so striking, but clearly this pattern looks incredible on the Motive 6. We simply had to get some for our RTH program! So for 2014, we're stocking the incredible Motive 6 in both Realtree APG and Realtree APS (All Purpose Snow).
If you click on the bow (at right) and zoom in on the jumbo image, you'll see the muted snow-colored base, mixed with overlapping hazy effects of pine, weathered hardwoods, and the last few leaves of the season - all designed to melt into late-season northern terrain. With so much industry hoopla over the usual green-based patterns, we've never really taken time to appreciate what a thoughtful and useful pattern Realtree AP Snow really is - until now. VIEW PATTERN SWATH
Of course, this bow isn't just sporting a fancy paint-job. This is one of our most devastating bows ... a brutal 350 fps menace, in fact, Bear's FASTEST BOW EVER! And it's for real - at exactly 70# peak weight, 30" draw length, and with only a single brass nocking point on the string, our demo Motive 6 spanked a 350 grain test arrow to the tune of 346.2 fps. That's CRAZY fast! And with its dual string suppressors and beyond parallel limb geometry ... noise and shock are so low they're just not worth mentioning. The Motive 6 is an honest big-gun for 2014 and it's ready for action - North or South.
Of course, we've loaded this great bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.
The integrated twin string suppressors are fully adjustable - for those who like to tweak the notes their bows sing. The suppressors also affect the arrow release timing at the shot, so tinker if you will. You may find a sweet spot worth a few extra fps or fewer dB's.
|Bow Press Note
Due to the high deflection limb angles, this bow requires a specific type of bow press. This bow must be pressed in a finger-style press only. Never let anyone press this bow who doesn't absolutely know what they're doing. Return to HF for service if possible.

|BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
|PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
