Traditional Archer’s Close Range Bear Kill (Video)

Being able to kill any animal with traditional archery gear is no easy feat. Everything has to come together perfectly for it to happen. It takes a lot to even get into a position for a shot, let alone a kill.

Matt Wetterling posted the following video to his Instagram account. It shows him stalking through a river towards an unsuspecting black bear. The bear then makes an unexpected move giving him a perfect shot.

The video was reposted on Facebook by the Lindsey Way.

You can tell that Matt is excited. All of his hard work has paid off. To be proficient with a traditional bow takes months of practice and literally thousands of shots. It was no easy feat, congratulations.
