Over the past few years I have been able to get a Black Bear every year. First was a spot & stalk that I got with the 45-70. Next was with the Ruger SRH 454 Casull over bait and last year was with a recurve over bait. Both from a brush blind, 5-7yds away. So this year I will be using a spear. Have any of you guys ever taken a bear with a spear from the ground or tree stand before and how did it go? I will be on the ground behind a brush blind and will be throwing a 7í Samburu Spear with a 7Ē head from 5-7yds. It weights 2.5lbs and hits with quite a wallop. If all goes well I might end up making my own spear head for future hunts. At this rate, I might have to us a big rock (BFR) next year. LOL
P.S. I will have my 454 on my chest. I haven't completely lost my mind yet.
