PostSubject: Bear Bows the story   Tue Apr 06, 2010 7:11 pm

Fred Bear (March 5, 1902 – April 27, 1988) was an American bow hunter and bow manufacturer. He was born March 5, 1902, in the town of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Although he did not start bow hunting until he was 29 and did not master the skill for many years, he is widely regarded as what some people like to call "A by god legend" and pioneer in the bow-hunting community. Bear was a world traveler, film producer, and the founder of Bear Archery, an outdoor company that still exists.

He died April 27, 1988, in Gainesville, Florida. Bear is listed in the Bowhunters Hall of Fame.

Bear, probably best known for his work as a bowyer, has also been immortalized in the song "Fred Bear" from the album Spirit of the Wild by hard rock musician Ted Nugent, who was Bear's lifelong friend. The phrase "Oh Fred Bear guide our arrows home," was taken from this song and printed on Schenkel's Tinkles Guide Service T-Shirts in 2007. The song is known by most bow hunters, many of whom have respect for him.

It is his mark of quality that has moved across his line.
