The Bear Marshal compound bow is a single cam bow that promises a smooth draw and a steady release that you don’t expect from a bow at this price point. The technologies that have been included in this bow are similar to those you get from far more costly models.

The Marshal is powered by the S7 Cam System with a rotating module. It enables a wide 7 inch draw length range starting at 23 inches and going out to 30 inches. The peak draw weights are 50 to 60 pounds and 60 to 70 pounds.

The limbs are the Bear Flared Quad Limbs that have already proven that they can generate significant power and are extremely durable. The limbs are locked tight thanks to the zero tolerance limb pockets for great precision.

Noise and vibration issues are treated by the top and bottom string suppressors.

The bow was released by Bear Archery as part of a Ready To Hunt package which includes an installed D loop, peep sight, a Trophy Ridge 4 pin fibre optic sight, 5 spot quiver, stabiliser with wrist sling and the Trophy Ridge Whisker Biscuit.

The bow also comes in a number of finishes with the most popular finishes being RealTree Xtra Green camo as well as shadow black, sand, olive and orange.

What they are saying in the forums about the Bear Marshal

Very quiet ! Very smooth ! Extremely accurate !!! Been shooting bows for nearly 40-yrs ! Very easy to tune! Balances nearly perfect bare bow


The Marshal is an OK bow. It would be a solid bow for hunting, but it needs to be tuned well. I was shooting decent with mine, until I took it to a different pro shop and let them have their way with it, switched to a ripcord drop-away rest, then it came to life. In my opinion, it is fairly accurate, and holds on target decent. I really think that bow can not be beat in that price range. Cons would be that it is loud, and I went through two sets of cables in less than a year.
