I've been using my Kodiak Magnum since 2004, and greatly appreciate its smooth draw, and small size. Initial set up took some time, as the bow wouldn't tune off the shelf as I like to shoot it. But I bought a T-300 stick on rest, and tuning became a snap. I mounted the rest as close to the shelf as practical and find it works exceptionally well. The bow is fast and quite accurate as is currently set up.

Awesome Bow!

Comments about Fred Bear Kodiak Magnum Recurve Bow:

This bow is super quiet along with deadly accurate and fast! It's also very light in the hand! The down side was the factory flemish string. It was not tied properly and came apart upon stringing.

      Comments about Fred Bear Kodiak Magnum Recurve Bow:

      I got this bow in 1974, and I still love it. I added a stabilizer for target shooting, and it will put them all in the bullseye as long as I can. Short, light, quick and accurate - perfect for the short-range brush hunting that is the predominant hunting environment down here in Louisiana.

      Comments about Fred Bear Kodiak Magnum Recurve Bow:

      got this bow about 3 weeks ago and straight out of the box was absolutely impossible to shoot straight. eventually tuned it to 8 inches and the draw still felt a bit heavy for a 55# bow so i shortened the brace height between 7 and 8 inches until i found the "sweet spot" and now i'm in love. i've been shooting a longbow for a little over a year now and this bow shoots as well, if not better than any longbow i've shot around with or owned in my short career. i've used it for hunting white tails this fall, i stalk on the ground and the short length (52in) and feather light weight makes this bow perfect for climbing into muddy mountain sides and deep into the forest. it's just what the doctor ordered for the deep/thick brush here in WV. bow is literally a "BEAR" to tune up and could take a few days of shooting to get it the to a the point that you shoot groups within a square inch but once you get it set it up to fit your shooting style you won't be disappointed.

              Comments about Fred Bear Kodiak Magnum Recurve Bow:

              Family bow anyone can pick up and easily shoot. Our family shoots daily. I have had a bow in my hands for 48 years of snap shooting, aerial targets and all around fun.. I have shot horse bows (yes, off horse back) longbows re-curves compounds and self made hickory sticks...and have never had a faster lighter more nimble bow...I purchased after some conversation at to what bow I never had and always wanted. I could not afford the Kodiak Magnum with my paper-rout money in 1972 so I purchased a black bear. Long live Fred Bear he is with me every shot

                Comments about Fred Bear Kodiak Magnum Recurve Bow:

                I often wondered what a short bow is like to shoot. I have only a 27 inch draw so I finally gave in to the standard recommendation and tried this one. It is only a 40 lb. pull but it shoots very fast and handles like a dream. It is also light as a feather when I pick it up. I have been shooting it every day for several weeks and like it a whole lot. I have been shooting Bear bows since I bought my first one in 1968, and this one continues a fine tradition.

                    It had been 35 years since I'd done any target archery, although I did a stint of hunting with a compound bow. I wanted to get back to tradition with a recurve; and I couldn't have been more fortunate than to find this Bear. It's quick, responsive, powerful, and accurate. I love it!

                        I received this bow as a replacement for a Kodiak I had problems with. With the help of 3 Rivers and Bear, I have a winner for a bow! I've been shooting it since i received it in the mail a few weeks ago and I can't wait to hit the woods with it. It feels so natural it's almost scary! I've been racking my brain to think of something that may be a negative...so far I haven't found anything.
                        Sweet bow.
