The bear was wounded, I tracked it in thick cover and made this shot when it came at me from very close range. The broadhead penetrated to the center of the brain cavity (center punched the brain), so yes it was quite lethal.
That shot would never be a first shot but under the circumstances it was a legitimate target and might have saved me a good thrashing.
The story was in the Dec/Jan 2007 TBM.
That was just a failed attempt at a joke (something I do MUCH too often), but I’m glad I attempted anyway, since you elaborated because of it. 😉
I don’t have that issue, but intend to eventually obtain all of them (when the funds become available). I look forward to reading about it.
