    In September, two friends and I are off to Ontario, Canada for a bear hunt. Needless to say I'm a little concerned about trying to kill something that can eat me. But this is a great opportunity and I'd really like to have the experience. Any addvice besides don't get eaten?

    I'm wanting to go again, been once was not successful.

    Good luck and don't worry about getting eaten, just think of the stories that can be told about you if it happens !

    Yup! My Vtec and I hope to be successful! I don't think I'll pick up a rifle to hunt for a long time.

    Hope you have better luck than I did on my "bear hunt."

    I bowhunted in northern Arkansas a few years ago, where the RESIDENT RIFLE success rate was, at the time, 2%.

    Needless to say we did not even see a bear. But it was a great hunt anyway.

    I'm accurate up to 45-50 yards and I'm most likely going to go with NAP's Thunderhead broadhead at 100 gr. Do bears "jump" bow strings like deer do?

    I love those Thunderheads....I've helped cape and or butcher alot of deer thru the years, and they take NO prisoners!!! Having not hunted bears, but watched alot of videos, and read even more, I have never heard of a bear jumping the string....hunt the wind, and pick your shot....if hunting over bait, your shot SHOULD be closer than 45-50 yds.
