  • Grizz hunting...

    Okay so this year i decided that i am going after a grizz with my bow.... I shoot a Martin MV2 at 65lb. and 3 blade muzzy 125grains.

    i have plenty of bear experience, and know my quarry fairly well. what i would like to know is some of the issues guys have had bow hunting a grizz... what worked what didn't.... i plan on part of the time hunting from a stand along side my creek they travel... and doing a stalk if necessary. I have 4 bears to thin this spring... the Wife and i are shooting for two of them... when it comes to stalking i will be solo as usual. like i said I know my bears and i Know the landscape... just looking for tips to make it the best i can..

    Hey Vince, if you need a hand with bear #3 or #4...

    I'm also planning to chase one with a bow this year. I'll likely give it a shot in the fall when they open up an archery-only hunt close to home, but I might try this spring further north.

        Is it legal when using a bow or muzzle loader to carry a pistol for backup.

          it is NOT illegal to carry it... however when on a weapons restricted hunt you MAY NOT use it to give a final blow to a downed animal. or dispatch a charging one except in DLP.

              still not sure about fall bears though... they tend to have eaten alot of my gasoline by then...

                      Grizz

                      I snuck up to a big old brownie a few years ago that was going in and out of its den.. Got 5-10 yards upill of it in the deep snow and hit the call.. he came out running full bore and never offered me a shot. I did however manage to shoot a pretty colored grizz in 04 with my hoyt. I beleive it was set around 70 lbs, 100 gr. Muzzys.. complete passthrough at 29 yards (spot and stalk), he ran about 25 yards and fell over. My only back up was my wife with the camcorder recording the whole thing..

                          Not sure if I spooked it or what.. I hit a snowshoe hare squeeler for about 4-5 Seconds, Put the call in my pocket and was just getting ready to draw my bow and wait for him to pop out of the den.. he came literally flying out and straight down the mountain.. iff I had a rifle I could have got it, but with a bow, I had no shot. Not sure if it winded me, or what.. I assume so as the snow was 4-5 feet deep and I snuck up quietly above the entrence to its den.. I'm going this weekend to do the same, I spotted one last weekend hanging out in a area. This time I may use the fox pro and set up down hill a couple hundred yards and try to entice him in for a easy meal..

                            start with a LOW LOW volume...there is an old saying about bears...

                            you will see the leave fall....
                            the deer will hear it fall...

                            the bear will smell it fall......i think they hear pretty dang well too...

                              Calls?

                              Hey vince, in ref to the calls, you using a electric call like the fox pro or a hand caller? Are you using rabbit distress, vole squeaks... woodpecker, crows.. ???? I had luck with the snowshoe distress.. but only used it once on brownies like we spoke of on the phone. Interested in trying to call in some blackies.. and at the same time, not scare them over the moutain
