EVANSVILLE, IN (February 12, 2018) – Bear Archery announced today the Bear Kodiak won the Bowhunting World Readers’ Choice Gold Award for best traditional bow. The Kodiak was featured on the cover of the January/February 2018 edition of the magazine.
Readers cast their votes on a variety of archery gear categories ranging from bows to sights, targets, blinds, and more. The results were released in the latest issue of Bowhunting World.
“We are thrilled to be selected by the readers of Bowhunting World for the best traditional bow,” says Dave Parker, Bear Archery General Manager. “The Kodiak continues the legacy of innovation and heritage that Fred Bear, our company’s founder, started in 1933.”
The Bear Kodiak was resurrected after high consumer demand for the return of the legendary 1959 Kodiak. The limbs are fashioned with maple cores faced with caramel colored glass and backed with a brown glass skillfully radiused for precision shooting.
Layered with brown and white fiberglass, the tips are hand-finished to accommodate modern bow strings. Featuring a supple leather grip, the Kodiak features a large profile leather rest plate and forgiving feather arrow rest.
