Our black bear bow hunts have been very successful, though no more or less successful than firearms. In Section #13 there is not an early bow season, so firearms and bow hunting start at the same time. Many of our visitors are so eager to get a black bear, they simply choose to use a firearm because of the range it provides. Most of our bow hunters just prefer the challenge of a bow hunt or have previously taken a black bear with a firearm.

Several of our guests buy custom built arrows, which can help to further dial in a consistent shot. We’ve bought custom arrows from several vendors, but currently buy from a craftsman at Pass Thru Custom Arrows. Obviously a top quality broad head is an important element as well. Here’s a short video of a great kill shot at Tippmann Outfitters
