Since it was first introduced in 2002, The 55" Bear Cheyenne has impressed and inspired traditional archers with its swept back style limbs and half-moon style grip reminiscent of Fred Bear's favorite bows of the early 60s. Bear Archery has updated the Cheyenne with a new blend of quality woods, but still featuring the classic design and exceptional performance bowhunters and target shooters have come to expect.
The Cheyenne was a collaboration between father and son - Grant Neil Byce II, Fred Bear's retired master bowyer, and Grant Neil Byce III, Bear Archery's current Operations Manager.

The half-moon grip feels full in the hand while allowing for positive hand placement every time you pick up the bow. 2-piece construction of black maple and shedua. Leather side plate and bear hair arrow rest included. Tapped with 1/4" x 20 quiver inserts. Inlaid Bear medallion.
Limbs: Limb Cores made with maple laminate and overlaid with high-strength black fiberglass. The handcrafted bow tips are layered black and white fiberglass, allowing the use of today's modern bow strings.
