What’s My Motive

In 1931 Fred Bear shot his first bow, several years later he became a proficient archer with a passion for the sport. He began hunting all over the globe harvesting trophy animals with his recurve bow and in 1946 started Bear Archery. Fifteen years later in1961 Howless Allen, a mechanic from Missouri, was inspired to create the pulley system. His thought was this would allow him to draw a heavier weight creating faster arrow flight; this was the beginning of the compound bow.

Bear Anarchy HC

The Bear Anarchy HC is an incredible offering in their tremendous line of bows. I now have two of the Anarchy HC’s set up at a 30” draw length and 70 pounds and the results have been the same. I sighted both of these bows in from 20 to 80 yards in under 20 minutes. Bear states that “the new Anarchy HC is a deadly hunting bow with the feel, accuracy, and satisfaction of a target bow” and I have found that to be true. With a very forgiving brace height of 7.25 inches and a length of 35.5 inches, this bow hits the mark over and over again.

My 28 Day Challenge

Because I am such a huge fan of so many of Wilderness Athlete’s products I decided to take on the 28 Day Challenge. This choice came as I noticed a bit of excess weight and sensed the urgency of the upcoming Mule Deer and Elk Archery Seasons in Colorado. I needed to shed a few pounds and to do so on a very limited time frame. I had a few weeks and limited time to work out due to other commitments.

My Motive 7 and My Agenda 7

I love getting a new bow. I suppose I love the fact that I get to set it up and then I get to shoot it in. I love the excitement that comes with a new bow and the thrill of becoming one with it so that when the moment of truth arrives, I will be ready. I have had the privilege of shooting many new bows in but this last year was especially fun.

Being a True Wilderness Athlete

Being a True Wilderness Athlete begins with being true to yourself.  At 44 years of age and being fairly athletic all of my life, I have concluded that nothing in life comes without hard work.  Many in the fitness industry have tried through dangerous and unhealthy drugs and supplements to quicken the results of workouts.  The results they have achieved have been short lived and sometimes even fatal.

At Wilderness Athlete the objective and goal is to get you maximized results from your hard work through great products that are a result of science and study.  Wilderness Athlete has sought out the best products from around the globe to offer you the best potential from your hard work.  When you are taking in the right kind of supplements and additives you are allowing your body to fulfill its potential.

Hunting In The Night

In many places the option to hunt at night does not exist.  In other places the option exists for limited species.  I just got back from an African Safari in which there was bait set for Leopard and Hyena.  One of the aspects of hunting this type of game in Africa that is unique is that much of the hunting will happen at night.

I was equipped on this hunt with my Bear Archery Motive 7 bow which was outfitted with my  number one choice, the Spot Hogg 7 pin Hunter Wrapped Sight.  This sight has been on every bow I have shot for the last several years.  I love all of the advantages of this site and the .010 diameter pins that I am able to get for it.  The sight is my choice because it truly is the best hunting sight on the market.

When Don and Keith Dvoroznak, the Father/Son owners of Ripcord Arrow Rest, put their mind to any task it is a good bet that they will get it done.  That is exactly what they did when they decided to take their combined 70 years of archery experience along with their military history in order to produce the best rest on the market.  The Ripcord Arrow Rest is the best selling rest on the market and the Dvoroznak’s intend on keeping it that way.  The Ripcord Arrow Rest gets all of their attention because they only make one rest.
