Now accepting back orders.
Since it was first introduced in 2002, The 55" Bear Cheyenne has impressed and inspired traditional archers with its swept back style limbs and half-moon style grip reminiscent of Fred Bear's favorite bows of the early 60s. Bear Archery has updated the Cheyenne with a new blend of quality woods, but still featuring the classic design and exceptional performance bowhunters and target shooters have come to expect.
The Cheyenne was a collaboration between father and son - Grant Neil Byce II, Fred Bear's retired master bowyer, and Grant Neil Byce III, Bear Archery's current Operations Manager.

The half-moon grip feels full in the hand while allowing for positive hand placement every time you pick up the bow. 2-piece construction of black maple and shedua. Leather side plate and bear hair arrow rest included. Tapped with 1/4" x 20 quiver inserts. Inlaid Bear medallion.
Limbs: Limb Cores made with maple laminate and overlaid with high-strength black fiberglass. The handcrafted bow tips are layered black and white fiberglass, allowing the use of today's modern bow strings.

Choose from a left or right handed bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.
Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. Click here to see our Bow Stringers. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
