My bear hunt in Saskatchewan gets closer each day and I'm shooting arrows like none other to make sure I'm ready when the time comes. I have been listening to everyone I know who has ever went and these are the things I hear the most:
If the bear is taller than a 55 gal drum... Shoot it.
If the bear could fit in the 55 gal drum... Don't shoot it.
If the bear stands up and can eat bait 6 foot off the ground... Shoot it.
A bears vitals are a little more forward and a little lower than a whitetail.
You have to come down from the back to find the boiler room and not up from the belly.
Anyone have any other advice on judging a big bear and putting a kill shot on him let me know.
