Excellent

Great video!!! I've taken two bears from stands with a bow I can't imagine the rush from being eye level and heart beat close!!!

Too many bows to list, and so many more I want to try!  Keep the wind in your face, and your broadheads sharp.

A few years ago while I was hunting in Quebec, the outfitter which is a friend of mine asked me if I was OK with my long bow on the ground, I said yes. I was about 15 yards from the bait site and I was comfortable with that, the problem was a big black bear came from an unexpected area and walk by me at about 6 feet, I wasn’t prepared for that and the bear caught my wind and took off like I’d never seen nor heard anything in my life.
There was a bear on this bait that was breaking log chains (seriously) and takein the barrel down into the woods away from bait site... Mike told me this was a big boar.

After about 20 minutes of the encounter at 6 foot I moved on the ground another 10 feet off of an old logging path thinking another bear may come down that same way. This time I heard something move behind me and as I slowly turned to look it was the big bore and he seen me, and it was not a pleasant thing, he started popping his teeth and swaying back-and-forth and all I could do is slowly spin around in a swivel chair and have my bow ready...I kept looking at his eyes thinking I will have to shoot him there to penetrate his brain, I’ve shot 21” bears and this was the biggest bear I’d ever seen. As he suede back-and-forth looking at me and popping his teeth the only thing I kept thinking was he’s going to charge at any moment, finally he veered to the left and started walking away he stopped and looked back at me and kept on going and I never seen them again. Two hours later another nice boar came in and I shot over him, I was not fully compose from my two earlier encounters and learned a great lesson that day. I was probably fortunate that blackbear did not charge me.

WHOA! That was an adrenaline rush just watching it, I can’t imagine being right there!

I better just stick to my white tails. Don’t like anything with teeth sharper than mine.  :bigsmyl:

Thanks for sharing.  I was in a tree 7 feet up with my 12 year old son when he shot his bear with a recurve. Fantastic experience sharing with your kids!

Nice video! I was lucky enough to draw a bear kill tag this fall in NW Wisc. Was thinking about using a gun now it's definitely the bow from the ground.

I've shot a couple from trees and a couple from the ground. All very exciting, but the two from the ground were close and personal and the most fun!

That’s cool!
I killed one bear from the ground spot and stalk in Alaska. It was 8 yards.

That is sooo awesome!  I want to come up there so bad.  It would only be about a 12 hour drive from here in central Minnesota.  Maybe next year....

So was the kill made with a stone point or not?

The kill was not made with a stone point. I only had one cane arrow and stone point that went into my first miss. By saying in the video “ I’ll try to shoot one with a wood arrow” was my way of telling the audience that. I really wish I had been more clear but once the video is shot there’s no way of fixing it. Sorry,,, there was no intent on misleading anyone
