Broadheads for Black Bears - June 9th Video Blog

Broadheads for Black Bears

The introduction of expandable broadheads in the mid-1990s effectively divided the bowhunting community. The previous broadhead options just weren't that different. Were you going to shoot a three-blade Wasp or Thunderhead was sometimes the extent of the banter. I'm sure Native Americans had similar discussions over campfires debating the effectiveness of the different styles of stones points of their era. One thing hasn't changed, hunters don't like letting their target animal get away after it's been shot.
I just arrived back in the States from the best week of bear hunting that I've ever been a part of. My eyes appear tired from the last nine days of travel and hunting, but I'm energized and still reveling in my true northern bear hunting experience. It was a full emersion into the northern Alberta wilderness, a week long Bear-apalooza.

Sprint Week at BHM - VIDEO BLOG

timberghostThis week at Bear Hunting Magazine is the beginning of a sprint of magazine production, video work and spring hunting.  I will be heading to Alberta Canada to hunt with Bighorn Meadows Outfitting on Friday, May 23rd. It’s a seven-day hunt with a travel day on each end, meaning that I will be away from the office for a while.
A blog will be a nice change for me as they, in general, seem to be more laid back compared to print journalism. And let's face it, you get to say what you really think on a blog, right?
