Approach HC reviews

If you are looking to up the ante a bit from the Bear Approach, you need to go for the Bear Approach HC bow. This bow is suitable for people who want to sharpen their shooting skills and are looking to shift from target shooting to hunting.

Things to consider before buying

This compound is both suited for hunting and target shooting. The bow has a shooting speed of 340 feet per second. With 32-inch axel-to-axel length and an overall weight of four pounds, adults with intermediate skills can use it with ease.


This bow also comes in two patterns like most of the bows from Bear. You might not be too impressed with that but the limited number of pattern options won’t disappoint you.

The “Badland” and “Realtree Edge” are two patterns. The limbs of the bow are “Camo” and they match with the riser. The branding stickers are not that big either. The string has a loud green color, adding to the interesting image of the rig.

Eccentric system

This bow comes with a high-quality cam system hybrid. It provides you draw length that ranges between 25.5 and 30 inches, with 0.5-inch increments. This system gives a let-off of 75%, which keeps the weight of the bow light.

Draw cycle

In this price range, the draw cycle of this bow is exceptional.  The bow feels very smooth in your hands and you won’t have to put in much effort while using it. Upfront, the draw will start a bit stiff but it will then transition through the let-off seamlessly.

Who should buy the Bear Approach HC?

If you have some experience with hunting bows and are looking to transition from target practice to hunting, this is the right bow for you.

Who shouldn’t buy it?

This bow is not the ideal option for the beginners. If you are new to archery then it is better for you to pass on this bow.


  • Shooting speed of 340 fps
  • Good for shooting small game at close range
  • Equally good for target practice


  • Only two finish patterns

Final thoughts

The Bear Approach HC is an excellent option for people who have experience with archery and are looking to improve their skills in hunting.
