Bear Archery is turning the traction of a successful year into momentum and with that comes the innovation and refinement of a brand new bow line up for 2014, including five new flagship models. The new lineup officially launched on Thursday September 26th on beararcheryproducts.com. The launch was preceded by a special sneak peak on Wednesday, September 25th when Sportsman Channel ran an hour-long special entitled Fred Bear: Father of Bowhunting.
“The original airing of the Fred Bear Special was such a huge success that both Sportsman Channel and ourselves pushed for an encore and we thought there would be no better time than the start of bow seasons across the country. This is a truly unique way to introduce our brand new 2014 lineup of bows.” stated Jason Pickerill, Marketing Manager for Bear Archery.
Headlining the launch this year is the Bear Agenda 6, Bear’s follow up to the hugely popular Motive 6 of 2013.

In the athletic world, athletes strive for perfection, but rarely achieve it. However; perfection was recently achieved at a National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) Invitational Archery Tournament. Last weekend in Richmond Kentucky, 425 other archers, coaches, teachers, spectators and parents witnessed Ryan Long create NASP history, one arrow at a time.
In the 10 years of NASP, no archer has ever shot a perfect score of 300 in any NASP tournament, championship or competitive event. At the Madison Central NASP Invitational Tournament in Richmond, KY, Ryan Long shot 15 arrows from 10 meters and 15 arrows from 15 meters using his standard Genesis bow, no sights or other attachments, and Easton full-length 1820 aluminum arrows. Each of Ryan’s arrows landed squarely in the 3” 10 ring for final, perfect score of 300. The previous record high score in NASP was 298, and several archers are tied with that score.
Ryan is a senior at Madison Central High School in Richmond, KY. He is no stranger to success. He finished 4th in 2011 and 3rd in 2012 at the NASP National Tournament in Louisville Kentucky. Ryan also finished 1st in 2011 and 3rd in 2012 at the NASP World Tournament in Orlando Florida.
