Question:

What is the ideal shot placement on a black bear?

Answer:

Vitals on a black bear sit a little higher than they do on whitetail deer, so assuming both animals are the same might cost you a trophy.  The ideal kill zone is still the heart and lungs, which sets just beyond the shoulder.  For our bow hunters, we recommend practicing on a 3D black bear target to familiarize yourself with the kill zone.
