Thanks! it was my first interior grizzly, and first grizzly/brown with a bow (I got a brown bear last year with a rifle, so this one definitely means a lot more to me!)

I've always wanted to as well.

All I can say is you had better move to Alaska and hunt "resident style" unless you have a very, very fat bank account!

I believe the hardest thing to do with wanting to use a 50# bow for grizzly is finding a guide that would be willing to take you. He will be the one that has to go after it after the shot.

My hat's off to anyone that will hunt Grizzly with a Stickbow.....I have never tried it. So I have no input on the specifics other than.....I think the hardest part would be to keep the nerves under control in order to make a good shot. I don't rattle easy....but Grizzly Bear....sure wouldn't want to just make him mad.

I shot a very large brown bear with a 51# Schafer recurve, 600 grain fmj with an abowyer brown bear head. Complete penetration at 14 yards.
