Black bear

Large bears present more of a challenge because of their bulk.

  • The bear’s shoulder is farther forward, the shoulder bones form a tighter angle, and its hair is several inches longer than other game’s.
  • Long, heavy hair makes a bear appear deeper in the chest than it actually is. As a result, many hunters aim too low or too far forward and hit the large shoulder bone.
  • A spot in the center of the lungs or slightly lower should be the target every time.
