Bear Archery Montana

Bear Archery Montana 64” Long Bow



Longbows have been used for centuries but it’s only recently that they’ve become popular among archers and hunters/survivalists enamoured with the idea of emulating the warriors of ancient times. While the wheel and pulley market is overcrowded with ready-to-shoot kits of questionable quality, the craftsmanship required to produce a decent longbow is such that only few manufacturers can keep the highest standards without raising the production cost significantly. Bear Archery is definitely among those.

In this review, we’ve taken a close look at the Bear Archery Montana, an American longbow of outstanding quality and great popularity among recreational archers as well as experienced professionals.
