As I told you last week, I will be going to Alaska in mid-August on a Coastal Brown Bear hunt. Any type of weapon is legal for the hunt (that meets the AK regulations for archery and rifles). However, Brown Bear with archery equipment is indisputably one of the top challenges North America offers the archer. Behind the Polar Bear, the Brown Bear is the largest land carnivore in the world. Kodiak Brown Bears can even rival the size of the largest Polar Bears.
The next couple of blogs I will be discussing my preparation for an Alaskan Brown Bear hunt this August. I will be discussing a few of my equipment choices and analyzing my training and preparation for this hunt of a lifetime.

Broadheads for Black Bears - June 9th Video Blog

Broadheads for Black Bears

The introduction of expandable broadheads in the mid-1990s effectively divided the bowhunting community. The previous broadhead options just weren't that different. Were you going to shoot a three-blade Wasp or Thunderhead was sometimes the extent of the banter. I'm sure Native Americans had similar discussions over campfires debating the effectiveness of the different styles of stones points of their era. One thing hasn't changed, hunters don't like letting their target animal get away after it's been shot.
