Bear hunting requires advanced skills and safety awareness. The hunt is intense, and the predatory bears are dangerous. Hunting them requires a special permit in most regions, and specific regulations apply to the permit. Bears can be hunted with bait or calls, running with hounds, or from a tree stand using a rifle, muzzle-loader or bow and arrow. Bears hunting weapons include muzzle-loaders, rifles and bow and arrows. Rifles are the most common choice because a high velocity bullet to the bear's vital organs kills quicker than arrows and black powder balls.Place the shot immediately behind the front shoulder of the bear. Have fun. Good luck.
