I have never shot a bear, but would think a fixed blade broadhead is best. I have seen firsthand how thick the hide and blubber is on a dead bear and good penetration is imperative.
All the Pro's say no mechanical broadheads on Pigs and Bears!
I've only shot one bear and the 100 grn Thunderhead put it down within 30 yds. The hair, hide and fat are too thick for mechanicals and we haven't even discussed the bone yet.
i wouldnt suggest mech's on bear.
you would be better off with a fixed blade broad head for bear . that being said i have killed one before with a mechanical , a puckets blood trailer the bear made it 38 paces from where i hit it and piled up dead . but i would still recommend a fixed blade for any type of big game hunting
I am with the rest of the guys. I say use fixed blades on bears. Some suggestions would be: NAP Thunderheads, G5 Strykers, or Magnus Stinger Buzz-Cuts.
A mechanical might work for bear but why chance it? Stick with the fixed blade, confidence kills.
rage broad heads are a beast! those will take down a bear in no time. have fun and good hunting.
