Hunters heading afield with their sights set specifically on bears have plenty to look forward to, but there are also many obstacles to overcome. The more prepared and diversified your approach, the better the chance of securing one of the continent's most dangerous and secretive predators.



Know your animal anatomy.A razor sharp broadhead that passes through both lungs of a big game animal will dispatch it in mere seconds. The only shooting angles that will allow this to occur are broadside, and quartering away. Frontside and quartering toward angles will only permit hitting one lung and should be avoided.


Anytime you see horizontal lines back in the woods, check it out; it just might be the deer that you have been waiting for. Not many trees grow parallel to the ground. When you spot a horizontal line in the woods, give it close scrutiny. The chances are high that it is a deer.



As Northwest wildlife managers attempt to curb elk numbers to keep ranchers and other landowners satisfied, hunters reap the rewards.



The name moose is derived from the Algonkian name meaning "eater of twigs". Moose are the largest of the deer family with seven different sub-species recognized in the world, four of which inhabit North America.


Wild Pigs

In general, pigs are more difficult to kill than deer or antelope but are easier to kill than elk. For eating purposes avoid the big boar hogs. They are the hardest to kill and the poorest to eat.



If you know where a gobbler goes on his daily routine, you are way ahead. Simply get to a favored strut or feeding area before the gobbler does, and call softly.

Foreign Game

Today in South Africa, approx 100,000 wild animals are hunted annually by the 6,500 visiting foreign big game hunters and the 50,000 South African hunters.



Also knows as speed goats many western hunters derive a challenge by matching whits with this fast and agile animal.


Muskox & Bison

Bison stand some 5 to 6.5 feet (1.5 to 2 meters) tall at the shoulder, and can tip the scales at over a ton (907 kilograms). Despite their massive size, bison are quick on their feet. When the need arises they can run at speeds up to 40 miles (65 kilometers) an hour. They sport curved, sharp horns that may grow to be two feet (61 centimeters) long


Sheep & Goats

Bowhunters must be able to locate and approach goats, hogs and sheep. To get within arrow range, they must break through the safety zone of these animals. It's a skill that requires good knowledge about the prey you're after, its habits and biological characteristics.
