PSE’s Keith Hubbard Got his Bear in Southern Arizona
With record high temps this past weekend…my honey hole paid off again. In a 24 hour period, I had 5 bears come in. The first afternoon yielded a large sow and cub. On the second day, I was about to climb into my tree stand when I heard a noise. I looked up the hill and saw this bear coming in, so I detached my safety harness, untied my bow and waited for her to enter the water. As she walked in, I sneaked over to within 15 yards, after spending 1 minute or so in the water she began to turn around so I drew. When she stopped, she was facing me, but a few seconds later she turned enough to give me a quartering shot. The arrow entered the shoulder and exited the opposite rear quarter; she ran about 70 yards and piled up. I can’t get over how fast the Omen Pro is at 70 #’s. It left a serious path of destruction. While I was taking photos and skinning her, I had two other bears walk in on me. What a great day to be on a sky island.
