No doubt about it, bear hunting is dangerous game hunting. Anyone who tells you different doesn’t understand the situation. A bear hunter’s worst nightmare starts with a bad shot and leads to a wounded bear waiting in some heavy cover. Rest assured, the bear does not have your best interests at heart. Its only mission then is to end you.
Take it from the veteran Canadian bear guide in this video, your first shot will make or break your day. He’s also right about one other thing: if the bear’s still a movin’, you better still be a shootin’.
So, take a few short minutes and listen to what this guide has to say about shooting bears. Your life could depend on it.
