How big is the kill zone on a average black bear?
woody ill save you the trouble of posting this again i just sent it to my father. Forrest hunter this is the picture you want..
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.

PLEASE...somebody stop the OTH insanity!!! Great shot though if you can find a boneless bear!

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