    Default bowhunt!!!

    Stalking bear with a bow has no equal!! Sure, you'll blow more stalks than with a rifle, but being 20-30 yds from a grazing bear that doesn't know you are there is as exciting as it gets, so be prepared.

    If you just want meat , bring a gun.

    I will tell you go with a bow. Taking an animal with a bow is truly rewarding. I'm bias though.
