Fred Bear started Bear Archery with the goal of making archery equipment obtainable regardless of age, gender, and socioeconomic status. We are proud to partner with Shoot Like a Girl which encompasses all our values while educating and inspiring women to experience everything archery has to offer.

Here at Bear Archery, we offer the most dependable and adjustable compound bows on the market. To help grow the number of women archers and empower them with confidence we have put together a list of compound bows we offer that are great female archer options for all skill levels and affordable to everyone. 

1. The EXECUTE 32 and EXECUTE 30, are Bear’s new 2023 flagship bows. They are the most high-tech, stable, and accurate Bear Archery compound bows ever produced. Available as both a 32” axle-to-axle bow and a 30” axle-to-axle bow. The flagship models receive a ground-up redesign with a new forged riser, groundbreaking Shock Management System®, increased weight and rigidity for best-in-class stability, and a revised Equalized Kinetic Orientation® cam system for unmatched performance. The Execute’s refreshed EKO cam system brings performance with a more forgiving and smoother draw cycle. The new Shock Management System in the bow’s riser brings unrivaled vibration reduction and sound-deadening technology never seen in a Bear bow.
