Perfect Shot on Black Bear Leads to Creepy Death Moan Echoing Through the Woods

Black Bear

Hearing a bear's death moan can raise the hair up on your neck.

There are plenty of strange sounds in the woods, but perhaps are more eerie than a bear's death moan. If you have never been bear hunting before, this sound can take you by surprise. Mostly because there's really no other sound like this in the woods.

In the video below, this bowhunter makes a perfect shot on this large black bear, which subsequently runs out of the frame.

However, listen closely. Because you'll get to hear this strange and downright creepy sound as it echoes through the pines.

Jeff Benson recorded a great black bear archery hunt. This hunt was filmed in in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The big black bear was all claws, teeth and snarling as it tried to make its escape from an unseen enemy. Off in the distance, an eerie sound of the big bear's death moan fills the air.

Great shot on that incredible bear, Jeff. We're certain this hunt will be one you remember for a lifetime.
