Karl will talk about Newfoundland’s black bears that are known for their big heads and propensity to score really well Boone & Crockett, as well as Pope & Young. Moving west he says hunters will start running into color phase bears, but if a big bodied black bear is what you’re looking for, then the grain belt of Canada is where you want to be. Karl will highlight two of their biggest black bears from Manitoba that weighed in at 776 and 801 pounds. He’ll also discuss crossbow hunting. Karl says that crossbows are one of the fastest growing segments of the archery industry and are a great choice for any hunter to consider. He’ll debunk some popular crossbow myths and talk about the effective range of a crossbow hunter and why they still need to get just as close as a traditional bow hunter to the game they are pursuing. In addition, he’ll talk about the broadheads he trusts on these monster Manitoba black bears, will highlight the importance of shot placement to avoid hitting the bear’s shoulder and finally, discuss patience in waiting for the best possible shot opportunity.
