I have booked a black bear hunt for this fall in Ontario. I will be bowhunting, and my question is: I use Spitfire 100 gr. expandable broadheads, and have great results on deer size game. Is this enough broadhead for blackbear?
It's just my personal preferance but I would never use an expandable for a bear or anything larger than a deer. I just got some 125 gr Montechs made by G5. I am extremely impressed. I did have to touch them up coming out of the box but they are scary sharp and they are exreamly well made. I can't wait to see how they perfom in the field.

I believe that many who completely resist the idea of...
