The number of people who have made a positive impact on my life are too numerous to mention. The great Fred Bear is one of them.

The first time I read “Fred Bear’s Field Notes,” I was blown away. As a boy, it was the only book I couldn’t put down, and one that I read over and over. His stories just made sense to me, and I could relate to Fred’s excitement over seeing amazing things afield. Fred had an amazing way of telling stories about the hunt, but also about the places he went and the people he met. His passion for archery and bowhunting sparked a fire in me.
