Lot of stupidity in the comments, including assertions that he is using field points or other target gear. But if you freeze it at 0:16 in, you can clearly see a broadhead on the end of his arrow. He definitely wasn't ready for what happened.

I think the knife would be more practical to carry than a shark.

20-foot Great White sharks are quite difficult to carry into the field - especially for black bear protection!! LOL!! ;) ;) ;) ;)

Nobody needs a 20 foot great white shark for hunting bear.

But I will fight to my last breath for your right to own 458 SOCOM, 50 Beowulf and whatever shark you want.
Buy ammunition and magazines.

I dont know , we hunt dear in SE Ak each time we go out we see between 4 and 6 bears, active natural selection is always present, sliver slingers need a back up IMHO.
