If you guys are into Fred Bear go to www.thesingingbowyer.com follow the site to hear Chad's music. He wrote a dynamite song about Fred everyone loves."The man in the Borsalino Hat " His music is different than anything else you have heard. I hunt with Chad and had the first cut of the CD before he took it to the studio.My daughter runs around singing his songs. Most folks I talk to say they never take it out of the CD player. Most of the popular Trad shops carry his CD. You can listen to most of it on your computer, however it is not as good as listening to it on a nice CD player on the way to work. Enjoy!

here are my two bear bows. a 62" 40# longbow with a double shelf, and a 60" 60# kodiak hunter. The longbow was given to me along with another york recurve, and I bought the kodiak hunter for 100.00. I like both bows, although they are not my primary hunting bow.

In October of 1970 I had just returned to the USA from South VietNam. I was at Camp Pendleton getting discharged from the USMC. The last thing I did was go shopping at the exchange. I left with a 50# 56" Bear Grizzley. I think I paid $70 new at the time. I shot my first bow deer with that bow. I still have it and some other Bear bows but that one is special to me.
