archery bear #2
« on: May 27, 2012, 07:52:58 AM »

well only my second year of hunting......
 
on friday I had the afternoon off and gave my buddy a call , he was good to go. so off we went to a region spot we have spent some time in this year, we were trying to get him his first animal with the bow.
 
we spent a few hours hiking a few spur roads and not seeing much , we decided one more road that i have seen a few bears on , he decided to stop and have a "smoke" and just sit and wait for some action..............I walked another km up the road..
 
after scanning the clear cut for 20 mins i spotted movement about 100 yards down the road, seems I was looking too far away .
 
the bear was just coming up the slash onto the deactivated road, i waited for the right times to close the distance and withe wind in my favour it was quite easy .
 
he popped into a "ditch" to eat some clovers and i moved into range at 15 yards.....a little closer than I like but the closer the better.
 
he came out of the ditch and turned broad side, alredy taking range markers i was ready to let the arrow fly.
 
I hit him just behind the right arm , turned out I took out all the arteries connected to the heart............ he only ran 25 feet before falling down...........
 
.
full pass through with the arrow and it went about another 20 yards and stuck into a log.......400 gn arrows really pack a punch at 70 lbs.
 
not a monster but really cool hunt and every animal I have taken has been hard earned.

Congrats Jim on another archery bear! As a rifle hunter I appreciate the effort required to get within 15 yards of your target. What do you do with your bear? Pepperoni? Roasts? burger?

Well colour me disappointed, here I thought I was gonna get to read about or see a video of a bear that can shoot bows!  That would've been wicked.










Seriously though Jim, pretty cool.  If you're going to hunt bears, that's about as level a playing field as you're going to get without hand to paw combat.  Way better than treeing them using hounds. 

Nice job.
