For what it’s worth my buddy x-bowed a huge black bear ?? about a mile from me.Before anyone gets their panties in a wad he has had shoulder surgery and can’t draw a bow.Turns out SCI scores the bear number 33 in the world regardless of weapon.We have great genetics on the Plateau we have no baiting and archery only for our short season good luck Lewis

Tell your buddy there is now a record book specific for Cross Bows. Might be a World Record as they are relatively new.

It’s called “Bolt and Quarel”

"World Record as they are relatively new. It’s called “Bolt and Quarel”"

What is a "Quarrel"?

I looked up their website, kinda generic... Ironically, contact info is from my area... Xbow organization in Ohio, say it ain't so...8^)))

A 180" typical whitetail will getja their world record...8^)

I looked up "Quarrel":

"A quarrel is the tip of a crossbow arrow, or bolt"

I would help ya out with measuring that if I was closer to ya. If you ever get up to Ohio give me a heads up and we will get it sorted.

33 in the world, pretty cool!

Just curious what are the specs on that bear? We have some pretty big ones in Pa.

Yes I was correct here’s Jace getting his official B and C measurement 20 9/16 and he is still excited about it Lewis

From: JTreeman

Certainly no disrespect to your buddy for a great bear. However, I’m pretty certain there is no way a 20 9/16 is the number 33 bear in the b&c book. The minimum for All Time is 21” Awards is 20”.

I don’t really know but that’s what SCI told him Lewis

Congratulations on a great Bear. 20 9/16 is a biggie. I have an even 19" & 18 12/16" with a bow so I can see how excited he would be.

Could be. I guess I don’t keep up with SCI. Maybe not that many bears entered I guess.

GREAT bear...

Lewis, you, nor anyone else should ever apologize for taking an animal with a crossbow, or any other *legal* means.

If it's legally taken, and some poor pathetic person has an issue because it was taken with a crossbow, then that is exactly what makes that person a "poor pathetic person ".

So I did a little more looking so I wasn’t a totally wrong asshole.

Photo is from the SCI website. Looks like he will easily be top 10 with crossbow. But nowhere near 33 all weapon. As you can see all 10 archery are bigger, they also have rifle, muzzy, and handgun categories with bigger bears. I could not find an “all weapon” listing. In any case a great bear…
