Can you add a little more detail to this?

"They are fascinating creatures and very difficult to place a perfect shot on with a bow. You have to be patient and show great self-control if you are going to be successful with a bow."

Bear have massive shoulders and their heart is down low like a pig. You have to wait for them to put the front leg forward for the heart vital area to be exposed for a shot. I've skinned one bear and seen another that had a broadhead stuck in the shoulder and one in the ribs and they weren't from our shooter.
