I'm in the home stretch now preparing for a Saskatchewan black bear bow hunt this May. Getting darn proficient with my Mathews Drenalin set at 65 lb draw weight, with Easton "full metal jacket" arrows. I'm going to tip them with Steel Force Hellfire Titanium 125 gr broadheads.
Question or two . . .
I am practicing for a slightly quartering away shot on a blackie (using 3D target) to improve likelihood of double lung shot, and reduce likelihood of an errant shoulder blade hit. Still, have any of you had an arrow hit too forward, at the shoulder blade? If so, what was the outcome?
Lastly, my plan is to not take a bow shot past 30-35 yards. I'm solid at 40 yards, but that's without the adrenalin shot of being over a baited blackie. Question is, do most of the CA outfitters set up bow shots over bait inside of 35 yards?
P.S. Already double lunged two nice whitetail in Alabama this season!
