Walk the Trails With The Immortal Fred Bear and Face The World's Most Difficult and Dangerous Game
"A shiver ran through me. I am a rifle hunter and have tangled with enough dangerous game … to know firsthand how blindingly fast a situation can get hairy. But this calm character of a Bear, hugging his thin knees by the fire, was planning to trot up to a big bull elephant and let fly an arrow at snowball-throwing range."-Peter Barrett, True Magazine
Before the compound bow, and without the benefit of any sort of reference guide, Fred Bear set out on a course to conquer the world's most fierce big game. Toting what would, by today's standards, be considered primitive bowhunting gear, Bear added challenge by taking along camera crews and writers to document these odysseys. And during the 1950s, 60s and 70s Bear became our greatest hunting legend ever.
The accounts of those historic adventures were captured in hair-raising detail and published in the leading magazines of the day … Life, True, Outdoor Life, Archery and others. Bear's stories were also re-lived to national television audiences on "The American Sportsman" and "The Tonight Show." But the days of hunting adventure being shared by the mainstream media to the general public are gone … and most of Bear's stories have been lost or largely forgotten … until now.
For the first time, all of "Papa Bear's" greatest hunts have been collected and brought to life in one amazing volume by accomplished author Dick Lattimer-Fred's right-hand man, friend and confidant for more than two decades. These are the famed Fred Bear adventures published during the heydey of hunting's greatest entrepreneur and ambassador of all time.
A sampling of the 25 chapters includes: "Arrow For A Grizzly," "You Go, I Stay (brown bear)," "Most Dangerous Bear?-I Say Polar," "Tiger With an Arrow," and "Africa's Meanest Game." The 6x9-inch, hardcover book is 300-plus pages and includes approximately 100 photos-some of which have never before been published.
A special limited printing of 500 signed and numbered, deluxe, leather-bound editions of "Hunt With Fred Bear" has been commissioned for this first-of-its-kind book. Following on the heels of the overwhelmingly popular "I Remember Papa Bear," (2005) this is the second book in the "Hunting Legend Series." These fine, collectible volumes are individually autographed by author Dick Lattimer and slipcased to preserve their inherent quality and value. Limited editions are available for $84.95 while supplies last. The regular edition of "Hunt With Fred Bear" is available for $24.95.
