DANG CHARLIE

Them must be some old pictures. Yer hair still has color to it, and yer waistline don't look so big.

Great pictures, and I'll bet, great memories.

TO ALL YOU JEALOUS GUYS

Don't dispair about not being able to hunt with Fred Bear, Earl Hoyt, and now Jack Howard is gone. There are still a few TRADITIONAL ICONS around. CHARLIE LAMB for one. Invite him on a hunt, he might just take you up on it.

The most important part of your hunting setup is the broadhead. The rest is just the delivery system.

Charlie, I'm probably not the only one who'd like to hear some things about Fred from someone who's met him. Thanks for sharing with us. God places people in our lives, when he placed Fred Bear in yours,even if for a short time, you were blessed. Frank

Target archery is seeing how far away you can get and still hit the bull's eye. Bowhunting is seeing how close you can get and never miss your mark.

We don't bash compounds here and that ain't what this one is about... Fred and company were just introducing the Bear Alaskan Compound bow and they were shooting promotional shots for the catalog and adds.

Of course Fred had his own personal left hand compound. You know what? The shelf was cut down on that bow just like his recurve. Shootin off his finger with a compound bow... kinda funny.

MAN!! I wonder where THAT bow went!

Fred was shooting a few shots with that compound and he'd raise the bow and draw just like with his recurve.
He'd just about jump out of his skin when the thing rolled over. He'd shoot and shake his head.

I asked him what he thought and he said, he had to shoot it for the promotion, but that when the wheels rolled over it really blew his aiming.
"I really don't like this thing", is what he told me.

Go figure! [Wink]

I should add that the pics of Fred shooting his compound did come out in magazines and the catalog that year.
I don't have a pic of it myself or I show it.

Anyone got a catalog collection?

I remember that Bear Alaskan compound picture well. It was a over the shoulder shot of Fred at full draw in a woods setting. He has his classic red check plaid shirt on. I ALMOST bought one of those that was sitting used on the local shops shelf (I think it was around 1977/78). Instead, I set aside my recurve and bought a Howard Hill Tembo longbow.

The rest is history.

I bet old Fred got back from that hunt and told the story to all his buddies.

Probably sounded like this:

"You'll never guess who was in camp with us this week, Thats right THE Charlie Lamb. Whoda thunk a little bowyer like me would get a chance to hunt with a guy like him." [tunglaff]
