Airgun Hunting Legion Member Takes Record Air Archery Black Bear

Record setting bruin sets the bar high for air archery hunters. 

Springfield, MO. The Airgun Hunting Legion is proud to announce the newest world record air archery black bear taken by Airgun Hunting Legion member Gary S. of Utah. Gary’s record bear was taken with a Benjamin Airbow in Canada in August of 2019, and officially scores 19 & 6/16ths inches SCI.  

“We are thrilled for Gary as the newest air archery world record holder for black bear,” says Director, Jason Reid. “Gary’s bear paves a way for others, and for the hunting community, proves the ethical power of air archery equipment on tough big game animals.”

“In late August 2019 I had settled into my treestand overlooking a bait site in the Canadian wilderness,” said Gary. “When my target bear fed into range I made the shot. Since the Benjamin Airbow is so fast I wasn’t sure if I hit him or not. The hit was indeed lethal and he didn’t make it more than fifteen yards from the spot of the shot.”
