Did any of you happening to see Cabela's Outfitter Journal this summer? I was watching it on the Outdoor Channel around mid July and noticed this guy moose hunting in AK with his bow.
The guy shoots a nice bull walking at close range and doesn't allow for a lead. The arrow disappears in the guts. The moose walks off like nothing happened. The hunter shoots again and hits just below where the heart is located. Finally this guy puts a third arrow through the boiler room.
Now, he is hunting with a guide and has booked a combo hunt that includes brown bear. Once again, this "sharpshooter" is hunting brown bear with his bow. The story goes that he is getting toward the end of his hunt and he decides to switch to a rifle. They eventually see a respectable boar and he shoots it. In the corner of the camera shot, you can see movement. It's a sow with a cub. The sow looks at the death throws of the boar, looks at the two guys and comes full bore! You can see the guide waving his arms to try and scare it off, but she is coming like a freight train. I was watching this and my adrenaline was pumping. At 6 yards you can see both guide and client shoot the bear in the chest. She spins, runs 50 yards and collapses! Naturally this is ALL on video and it is seriously intense.
One question pops in my mind. What guide in his/her right mind would let this crookedshooting client take his bow after a brown bear just after making a moose into a pin cushion.
If you haven't see this video and have never been charged by a bear. It is a true eye opener. Check it out if it comes back on.
You can see a preview on the above link. Look for Alaskan Bear and moose combo.
