good thing its private property the game guys might be upset carrying a rifle during bow season
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

In Wisconsin you can hunt bear with either a bow or gun

just hit what your aiming at with the bow and throw the backup plans in the dump. a sturdy skinning knife should suffice for a backup plan.

just messing with you joel. by all means take a gun. if it aint in bow range than blast it with your rifle. its still a trophy and a fun hunt no matter what weapon you choose. and if i was bow hunting bear i would like something with plenty of UMPH to use in case i missed and just ticked the beast off. mad bear chasing you, means you need firepower quickly. and if your like me you cant shoot arrows nearly as fast Legolas did in Lord of the Rings.

For a first time bear hunter, I will recommend a hunt over bait in one of the states that cater to out of state hunters (like Maine).

That way you can taste sucess (and bear roast) sooner.

After all, just going after bear is not guarantee that you will see one.
