it needs to travel with at least 250 fps (feet per second). We need to find a bow which can accelerate a 500 gr arrow to 250 fps. A Bear Archery Grizzly with 48 pounds manages to accelerate a 503 gr arrow to 140 fps. So approximately you’ll need at least 65 pounds.
Can a hunting bow kill a bear?
Whether you use a mechanical or fixed-blade broadhead for bear hunting, you need to know where to aim. The ideal shot for big game animals is an arrow that passes through both lungs. Taking out both lungs is even more important when hunting black bears though.

Can you hunt grizzly bears with a bow?

Is it possible to kill a bear with your bare hands?
TIL only 2 people in recorded history have killed a Grizzly bear with their bare hands. I won’t be impressed until someone kills one with their bear hands. Fortunately Americans have a right to bear arms.
Can you shoot a bear in the head?
Since the spinal cord is so small, it makes sense to aim at the brain. But bears have thick, strong skulls shotgun slugs or even rifle bullets may not penetrate. A bullet striking this area has the greatest chance of penetrating the skull, hitting the brain and stopping the attack immediately.

Can you kill a bear with a 9mm?
The 9mm can kill bears but is considered underpowered by experienced woodsmen. The 9mm has 350 to 450 ft/lbs. of energy, while 1,000 ft/lbs is considered the minimum for a bear hunting gun. Proper 9mm bullets yield sufficient penetration in soft tissue, but it may not stop a bear quickly enough to avoid being mauled.
Is 70 lb draw too much?
For example, a bow with a 70-pound peak weight and a 80% let-off should have a holding weight of around 14-pounds. Being able to hold a bow at full draw for 30 seconds is great, but if you’re shaking, struggling, and exhausted at the end of that time, then you’re not going to be able to make an ethical shot.
Can a recurve bow kill a grizzly bear?
Shooting a recurve is harder than shooting a compound bow, plain and simple, but a recurve does have some advantages. It’s very possible that I will have to make a very short-range or quick shot on a bear, and shooting instinctively is much, much quicker than using sights.
