After reading the rave reviews on this longbow, I decided to purchase the Montana. Finding one in a 55# was a little difficult because everyone seemed to be sold out of this poundage. Because I needed to pick one up before a hunting trip and still have time to dial in the tuning before the trip, I was forced to buy one at Bass pro and NOT the best place to buy anything that has anything to do with traditional bows. I purchased the bow and went thru the tuning process, which was quite easy. But when I removed the ugly (in my opinion) black leather grip to install a "sure grip" (from 3Rivers) I realized that there were gaps in the laminate on the grip portion of the bow. the stock grip hid this defect. It seems quality control was out to lunch that day. The bow was nice to shoot, and did tune well out of the box, but I expect a little more quality when purchasing a bow, ecspecialy from a company like Bear. They did offer to replace the bow, but there would have been a 3-4 week wait, so I returned it to bass pro.(who knows nothing about traditional bows by the way) Stick to the best when buying a bow.........3Rivers and trust me, they have the best customer service in traditional bows and equip that you will find, Hands down. PS... I'm saving up for a tomahawk longbow....

Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

I am new to longbow archery. This bow was recommended to me by a friend. I have since become fanatical about traditional archery. It's challenging enough to keep you interested and wanting more. The Bear Montana Longbow has delivered everything that I have asked of it so far. The only part I wasn't crazy about was the leather grip (minor issue). It's cheap. Aside from that, it has been great!

    Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

    This is great bow for me. It arrived very fast from 3Rivers and in perfect condition. I have no finger pinching, no hand shock, and at 40# I can shoot it all day for target practice without getting tired. It meets Indiana state law of 35# or higher draw weight for hunting (if I wanted to use it for that). It's smooth and accurate. I just love it. I did replace the arrow rest with Velcro before using it and like everyone else I will soon be changing the grip as it is poor and don't match the quality of the rest of the bow. This is a great quality bow for the price and I plan on keeping it the rest of my life, then my son can have it!

      Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

      What a great bow! Bear does it again. I am currently shooting a 1969 Bear Kodiak Magnum(46@28",27 1/2" draw) and decided that I needed a longer bow for my draw length. I decided to switch to a long bow to stay true to my traditional style but, did not want to break the bank on a custom bow. So here it is, the Montana. The first night I shot about 100 arrows and felt great. No stacking like the magnum and great shot follow through. I now shoot the Montana(50@28",27 3/4" draw) constantly. Thanks Bear!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery once again fast and no damage. Ordered on a Monday, received on Friday the same week.
      Thanks 3 Rivers for the bow set up service.

        I bought my Montana in 1998. I shot SCA tourneys in California with it. Now I hunt with it in Wisconsin. Same great bow. Smooth, no stacking very little hand shock. I have never even considered another bow.

        Bear does not put exact draw weight on the bow like they did in the past. Draw is very smooth, very accurate, well made.

        Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

        Excellent craftsmanship, quiet and accurate are the best words to describe the Montana bow. I ended up removing the leather grip and replacing the rest. I'm going to pass a tip along. If you are starting out and plan buying/shooting high poundage bow, buy a lower poundage bow and you will better gain and improve technique. I shoot a 75lb. compound. I shoot a 55lb. recurve. And now I shoot a 45lb. Montana. Easier to shoot, less fatigue, and now my accuracy has improved tenfold. You can never go wrong with a Bear!!

        Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

        I bought this bow on a whim at --- for $ in the clearance aisle. I soon learned #55 was a little to much bow for me. I traded it for a #50 model, and wow!Very smooth and quiet, and once I got in the rhythym of things, I was stacking arrows on top of one another.The worm really turned for me, and I convinced myself I needed a custom. I sold the Montana to fund the custom, and have to admit, I may have made a mistake. The custom D/R Hybrid I got was faster, but I shot the Montana much better. What good is speed if you cant hit the mark, right?Im experimenting with recurves right now, but another Montana may be in my future.
