We recommend visiting a local archery shop for assistance. A competent pro shop can ensure the bow fits you properly. They can also assist with tuning and basic lessons to get you going in the right direction.
Take it to your nearest dealer. Preferably the dealer where your bow was purchased from if available. You can access dealers near you on our “dealer locator” from the website. You can also send the bow back to Bear Archery with a repair number. This can be accessed on our website under the “Customer Service” tab.
Do not attempt to shoot the bow again until a competent archery pro shop looks the bow over. You can also send the bow to us using the “Bow Repair” link here.

Draw weight is measured at 28 inches on traditional bows.
For every inch of draw length above or below 28 inches you add or subtract 2 pounds.
Your bow may be strung for up to a week. Any longer and the string should be removed. Your bow should also be hung horizontally to ensure the tips are not damaged.
All traditional bows should be stored in a climate-controlled environment. If left in a humid or frigid environment, you risk warping of the bow.
Bear Archery recommends periodically applying a light coat of furniture paste wax rubbed on with a soft cloth.
We recommend de-cocking your crossbow each time you’re finished shooting. BearX crossbows should NEVER be cocked longer than 12 hours.

Trophy Ridge sights are built to ensure the archer has plenty of vertical and horizontal adjustment. The likely cause is your bow is out of tune. We recommend paper tuning the bow before starting to sight in your bow.
Yes, you can set your first pin at 10 yards. React technology must be used in 10-yard increments.
No, you must set your pins in 10-yard increments.
We suggest using a chronograph to check your bow speed before purchasing your React sight. Trophy Ridge has expanded our React lineup to help archers of all ages and sizes gain access to this amazing technology.
No, as long as your arrow weight and spine are consistent, your arrow weight cannot fool our React Technology. The reason is that your other pin gaps are based on your first 2 pin gaps. The further an arrow is propelled from your bow the more gravity affects the arrow forcing it toward the earth. Our React Technology takes into account the rate of drop and your arrow weight.
