Arrow weight for bear

(1/3) > >>

Okay this year I'm going to try and take my first black bear with a bow. I was wondering if I should increase my arrow weight compared to my setup for Whitetails. My arrow weight right now is around 540 grains and my bow draws 57 pounds at my 31 inch draw length. Thanks for the help.

You are good to go! If you avaid major bone structure, bears are VERY easy to penetrate. Very light rib structure.

Olin Rindal:
You're good. Bears are pansies when it comes to an arrow to the lungs.

Thanks again y'all.

I agree with Olin, bears give it up pretty easily! You are more than good with your setup!
