Bear 64" AuSable LongbowItem Number: 2095X
Fred Bear spent many hours canoeing and fly-fishing on the AuSable River, home of the Grayling, Michigan Bear Archery plant. Now Bear Archery has captured the majesty and spirit of that dynamic river with the AuSable Longbow. What sets the AuSable Longbow apart is it's reflex/deflex design, larger sight window, full radiused grip and crowned, cut-on-center arrow shelf. The 64" length and bamboo core limbs make this one high performance shooting machine.

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.
Minimum Arrow Weight - Do not shoot an arrow weighing less than eight grains for every pound of peak draw weight. For example: If your bow's peak weight is 40 pounds at your 30" draw length, do not shoot an arrow weighing less than 320 grains total arrow weight (40# x 8 gpp = 320 grains). Shooting an arrow below eight grains per pound (gpp) can cause damage to your bow similar to dry firing and possible injury to the shooter or others nearby. Damage caused by shooting an arrow that is too light will damage the bow and will not be covered under warranty by 3Rivers Archery or bow manufacturer.
