Fred Bear—Biography of an Outdoorsman
by Charles Kroll
With Bear’s self-penned Field Notes the reader is gifted with over-the-shoulder hunts that he personally selected to share with his legions of admirers. Here, however, author Kroll delivers the complete Bear story from humble Pennsylvania beginnings to legend status within the sport as bowhunter, inventor/manufacturer, and television celebrity. Bear certainly shared the spotlight with his contemporaries, most notably Howard Hill, yet it was Bear’s company and vision that delivered the archery tackle that recruited generations of hunting archers.
