Well we are fast approaching my favorite time of year black bear baiting season. I have shot several with rifle, pistol and shotgun, so this year i have been practising with my bow and hopefully will pass my test this weekend so I can hunt them with a bow.
So my questions are how far will they run on average with a good lung shot. I am thinking of using slick tricks 125 heads 70lb compound kodiak bow the shot should be about 15 to 20 yards . the arrows are grizzly stick sitkas a heavy foc arrow.
and after they run what are some of the better tracking methods I have heard of the coleman lantern and saw a flashlight by gerber at sportsmans than is supposed to track blood or just do it the old fashioned way slowly step by step any ideas and comments are appreciated .
Typicallly when firearm hunting i have never had them go more than 5-10 yards so this is new thanks nick
