Named after the last frontier and built to endure anything - the new Alaskan XT. This bow is capable of speeds up to 335fps while still providing an easy to shoot 80% let-off. Not only blazing fast, but this bow has a draw length range of 25"-30" and two weight range options: 45-60lb or 55-70lb. Integrated picatinny sight mount and Integrate Mounting System rest locations are machined into the riser; allowing you to mount your favorite steamlined accessories. Additionally, this bow is deadened by strategically placed in-riser dampeners and upgraded with a roller cable slide. All that packed into a forgiving 6.25" brace height and 33" axle-to-axle package.
What Dalton Found New for 2024:
New Longer Caged Riser -A much longer riser that increases stability at full draw compared to the previous Bear Alaskan and cages machined top and bottom for rigidity, reducing vibration and noise. New DHC Hybrid Cam System -A different profile from the previous DHC system that incorporates a much improved module/draw stop system as well as a redesigned optional limb stop. Smaller in diameter to provide better speed in its draw length range as well as improved nock travel. (Cam on Paradigm is the larger version of this cam to optimize for longer draw lengths) New Accessory Package -Picatinny Integrated 4 Pin sight exclusively made for Bear's RTH packages as well as IMS Integrated Whisker Biscuit V. "I'm personally excited to finally have vertical adjustment for the arrow rest for better options for paper tuning and broadhead tuning." New Picatinny Sight Mount -Machined into the riser in the same way flagship bows are for straight, level and solid mount of all Picatinny sights that also keeps the weight of the sight more centered in the bow. This is the first time Bear has used this technology. New IMS Arrow Rest Mount -Bear is utilizing the QAD IMS riser mount system for the arrow rest for the first time AND on a bow in this price point. Allows you to use the new Trophy Ridge Propel limb driven rest as well as any IMS rest. New Vibration Dampers -Riser has rubber vibration dampers on both ends of the riser as well as continuing to use Killerwave limb dampers. New Adjustable Cable Rod -"A major upgrade that has been needed in Bears bow in this price point for many years to give us more tuning options to improve arrow and broadhead flight." New Roller Slide with Served Cable -Using the same technology from the Adapt+, the new roller slide with served cables that eliminates one of the biggest issues the previous Bear bows had with wear from the cable slide. New Lower Rear Stabilizer Mount -Drilled & tapped low on the riser to allow you to install a rear mounted rear stabilizer bracket for better center of gravity, better hold on target over mounting a bracket off the front like previous Bear bows. Who Is This Bow For? "I find the Alaskan XT to be ideal for someone that wants a great string angle from 25"-30" of draw length especially the sweet spot of a 27.5" to 30" length. This bow fits the needs of someone that is hunting from a saddle or tree stand where it's ATA length won't be any issue either. During the off season of hunting, this bow will be awesome to shoot at TAC or for 3D events."

Dalton's Suggested Upgrades:
-"The stock plastic peep has the rubber tube to help keep the peep straight but the tube ends up coming loose or snapping. I recommend our standard aluminum 3/16 peep upgrade that does not have a tube. I also recommend to go to an aluminum peep for over 65lbs"
Stage 3 Broadhead Tune
-"Paper tuning isn't where tuning stops if you are planning to hit the woods with broadheads, our Stage 3 tune includes a much deeper dive into tuning to get your broadhead and field point shooting as close to the same as possible which improves your arrow flight, your groups, makes your practice sessions with field points much more effective as well as most importantly stacking the odds in your favor for confidence in the field. The main two things after our Stage 3 tune that can totally change your point of impact with broadheads are to minimize torquing the grip of the bow and by not adding facial pressure to the string at anchor"
What Stage 3 Broadhead Tune Includes:
We do require you to order arrows with your bow package to be able to perform our Stage 3 broadhead tune and achieve the results we expect from tuning.
All From Stage 2 Tune
Full Broadhead Tuning Process for the broadhead you will hunt with to ensure the very best arrow flight possible. We expect after tuning for your broadhead to shoot within an inch or less of your field point at 20yds.
On all Stage 3 setups, we typically spend 2 to 3 hours minimum on your fit, setup and tune to ensure your bow performs to the highest level possible.
Brace Height 6.25"
Draw Length Range 25-30"
Draw Weight Range 45-60lb, 55-70lb
