Default Bear Wild --- Thoughts?

Wondering if anyone has experience with the Bear Wild. I'm on a tight budget these days and looking for a setup to get out this fall.
I was looking at the Drive R, actually shot it and really liked it, but think it may be out of my budget right now. Looks like the Wild could fit the void for this season though.

Thanks

I just looked at both bows and the prices on the internet. On the Bear web sight the Wild is listed @ $399.00 and the PSE Driver R is listed at $499.00. In my opinion it would be foolish to just settle and buy the Wild than spend another hundred bucks and get what you want. Odds are you won't be happy with the just settling bow and wind up buying another bow in a year or so that will cost far more than that extra hundred bucks. Of course it is your money and you are certainly free to do what you want but I have always found it is better to get what you want and buy once.

i've found the Wild for $350 with the RTH setup and the Drive R for $650. Kinda wanna get everything in one package to save some $$. If I could find a Drive setup for only $100 more I'd have to go with the that for sure

Ive got the wild, and it has been a great first bow. The draw cycle is nice an smooth. It has been accurate out to 40 yards for me. I haven't stretched it out much farther. The accessories aren't amazing, but they get the job done. My only complaint is that the string on mine keeps rotating my peep bc it keeps stretching.
