Anyone done bear with a recurve?

Recommended Posts

Boar

Thats my next adventure for next yext, this year, this year Me an minni boar are gonna use a crossbow. But Im now turning to a new challene in the stick an string department with the use of a recurve, then possibly longbow. Ive got well over a year to prep so would like any infor on arrow wieght an such such mechanics. No sight on the recurve so it will be all instictive shooting an any tips there would be great, even from those who just shoot recurve for fun or or other species. Any tips would be great as it will all be absorbed an carfuly disected in my walnut. Thanks boar

One key point... ok two points counting the actual points themselves. Grizzly sticks and a long and lean broadhead. Look at blades such as the Wensel Woodman or Zwickey type head. These are a good 3:1 ratio blade that will cut in deep and the Grizzly sticks have amazed me for penetration.

Run full length arrows and the heaviest blade your bow will fling straight to get the maximum punch. Make sure your recurve/arrow combo is dialed in with good arrow flight as sideways or whipping arrows work as good as slapping them with a willow branch. Waiting for the perfect shot and having your bait placed correctly in relation to the stand or blind will hold the most value when taking a bear with stick and string.

Yup what Jonny said I will add you will need to shoot everyday or every other day because recurve is muscle memory and hand eye coordination,a week off from shooting could take you a month to recover from.

I've never hunted bear (yet!), but I can tell you that the info Jonny P gave you regarding your set up is spot in for any archery gear designed for thick skinned/boned critters. Excellent advice and the heads he mentioned are tried and true, rock solid broadheads.

Also, as Sniper says- practice, practice, practice! See the link below, but maybe don't follow Allan's advice... wink

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
