Thanks- looks like bear has a lot larger kill zone-large 18" serving plate compared to a regular 12" plate on deer.

the kill area on an average black bear is not 18" around. there is less to a bear than meets the eye.

The kill zone on a bear is not much bigger but sits farther back. A shot in the middle of a deer is guts, maybe liver if really lucky, and on a bear will still get you a double lung.

if you shoot him over the hip your kill zone is about the size of a trash can cover. if that's not big enough, its time for more prctice.

OTH ain't my cup of tea either.

OTH is not a very ethical shot to take....and I would like to hear more on the "trash can lid" theory mentioned above??

I don't know if I would use the term "Ethical" its just tight to the spine, thats why I personally pass on it.
