  • Q:

    I have heard and read many different opinions about how long to keep a Montana strung. Some say...forever..some say for a week if you are shooting...some say they re - string every time. I know I will probably get different answers but if some people say keeping it strung hurts nothing then why bother other than a safety issue. That not a problem here, thank u.

    So what say ye....

      A:

      Yes, there are many different opinions. Some people claim the bow looses poundage over a long period of time. Others claim it can "set" loosing some casting ability. I have not noticed any problems leaving modern fiberglass bows strung. But if I am not shooting the bow frequently, I will unstring it and store it.

  • Q:

    If I have a 25" draw length and want to hunt whitetail deer, should I get the 45# or 50# bow?
    Asked on 9/1/2014 by Scott from United States

    2 answers

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I would recommend the 50# for a hunting weight at your draw length.

      Answered on 9/2/2014 by Sam from 3Rivers Archery
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      If you can pull them both with the same ease, use the 50#. If not use the
      one you can pull the best.regardless, either should work fine. You lose or
      gain about 3 pounds of pull for every inch off or in addition to the
      standard 28" draw weight of most all bows. So, with a draw of 25" and using
      a 45 pound bow your draw weight would be around 36 pounds and around 41
      pounds for a 50 pound bow. I know of Montana hunters that regularly hunt
      deer with 35 pound bows. In either case, be sure your arrow heads are razor
      sharp and after you sharpen them, be sure to coat the edges with
      Vaseline.that will tend to keep them razor sharp when in the field.

      A:

      Shoot the heaviest arrow that shoots well in your bow. Mine are around
      500-600 grains but I shoot a longer arrow at 32"..my draw length is 31".hope
      this helps.

      A:

      For a hunting set up we lik e to recommend 9 to 10 grains per pound of bow weight. For your bow I would recommend an arrow around 500 grains.

      Answered on 7/16/2014 by Art from 3Rivers Archery
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I like to shoot a heavier arrow because a long bow does not have the speed of a recurve. Same principle as in football, would you rather be hit by a 170 lb defensive back traveling at 15 miles per hour or a 370 lb lineman traveling at 8 miles per hour. The big lineman is not as fast but will exert more force.

    I have a 32" draw length. Will the Montana work for me, or is the stack past 28" bad?

      A:

      I have a 30" draw length and my Bear Montana doesn't stack too bad. It's a
      little more stack than with my other more expensive bows but definitely
      manageable.

      I haven't talked with anyone that long of a draw that shoots a Montana, so I really can't answer. However, it seems to be a very smooth drawing bow and guys with longer draw lengths have said it draws easy and smooth for them.

      I have a 30" draw and use a 45lb Montana. I haven't noticed any stacking, I
      think the 64" length helps in this regard.

      I don't know about 32". I pull 31" and mine does not stack so I would think
      32" should work fine.

  • Q:

    I presently shoot a 45# recurve and am interest in the Montana. I know draw weight is draw weight but if I was to order the Montana in 50# how much more difficult would the draw be? I have heard a long bow being smother drawing the 50 would hardly be noticeably harder over the 45# recurve. Is this true?

      It should be noticeable, but not really that much more difficult.

      A:

      I shoot a 50lb recurve and subsequently ordered a 50lb longbow. It is much easier to draw and hold than the recurve. If I were to do it again I would order a 55.b longbow instead.

      A:

      I currently own both the #40 and #50 Montana's. Both are very smooth
      drawing with very little hand shock. I prefer the #40 over the #50 for
      regular target practice because it has a smother draw. I use the #50 solely
      for hunting. Can't go wrong with the #50 but there is a noticeable
      difference in draw feel. Good luck! Bob

  • Q:

    I have over 30 years experience with Howatt bows - and I have always liked the quality and workmanship. I had a Bear Kodiak Magnum 30 years ago - it was nice - but too short for me.

    How is this Bear Montana? Is the quality of workmanship good?

    Does it shoot smooth and easy?

    I just want to be assured that it really is a good value for the money. Do you guys really recommend this bow?

    I remember in the late 70's archery shops I seen new Howatt Hunters and Diablo's for $79.99. I bought my new Kodiak Magnum for $38.95 - those were the days.

    Thanks, Andrew Rink

      A:

      It shoots smoothly with very little handshock. The workmanship is pretty good (mine did come with a scrape on the lower knock, but that might have happened en route). I have experienced no noticable wear from use, and no concerns. The leather handle wrap is pretty flimsy, if you shoot everyday it wears away quite quickly (something like 2mm suade, not the most durable stuff). The string has held up well, though some of the serving has worn at the knock ends. There has been no noticable set taken. The arrow rest remains in good condition. The bow does not come with a stringer. Also, the string does not come with a brass knocking point.
      Overall, it's a good, smooth, durable shooter. Enjoy.

      The Bear Montana is a good bow, especially for the price. The quality is very good and it's pretty smooth. It would be hard to find a better longbow at this price.

      I've had my Bear Montana (40#) for a year. I love it. It takes me back to my childhood days and the pure joy of archery. Beautiful simplicity. Smooth, quiet, easy. Not crazy about the leather grip, but a great value for the money!
