How to Adjust the Draw Weight on a Bear Whitetail Compound Bow

By Scott Mytyk

You bought a Bear Whitetail compound bow, but the draw weight isn't set to your liking. All Bear compound bows are adjustable over a 10-pound range. New bows come from the factory set at the peak weight, and a used bow may be set anywhere in the range. There is a label on the bow that has the specifications for the particular bow. This will include the draw length and draw weight.

Step 1

Find the label that tells you the draw weight range and decide whether the draw weight needs to be increased or decreased.

Step 2

Use a 7/32-inch hex wrench to turn the top limb bolt one turn. Clockwise increases the draw weight, and counterclockwise decreases the draw weight.

Step 3

Turn the bottom limb bolt one turn. The draw weight has now changed between two and four pounds.

Step 4

Continue alternating turning the limb bolts up to two more times. You have reached the bottom of the adjustment range when the limb bolts have been turned counterclockwise three times.
