Note the feather in his hat! [Smile]

Woodduck... Have you still got that Alaskan? I know a guy who'd be tickled to have it!

What a great tip!

I met Fred 3 times over the years and what impressed me most about the man was how easy he was to talk to and how "normal" he was for a "supestar hero". Really just another bowhunter when it came right down to it. Easy to smile and quick to laugh. And I remember his hands were huge! The most humble man I've ever met. Frank Scott was the same way.

Never got to hunt with him though. That would have been awesome! Charlie that has to be one of the best memories a trad bowhunter could ever have you lucky dog!

In 1968 I went to Michigan on my honeymoon. Stopped by the Bear Museum and as luck would have it Papa Bear was there greeting visitors.

What impressed me the most was his size. I had always seen him in pictures standing next to a 12' bear mount, with the bears paws hanging down to right about Fred's head. It made him look like a man of smaller stature, thin and wirey looking. Boy was that a misconception. I am 5'10" and the top of my head came to below his shoulder. He was a man's man.

He was also genuinelly one of the nicest guys you could ever want to meet. The kind that you just can't picture getting mad, about anything.

CHARLIE, you are a luckey man for your experiences, and we are all luckey to have you to pass on the stories. As someone said before, you "SHOULD" write a book. Even a novel. Real life experiences like yours are what great fictions are based on.

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

What a great thread. Charlie, You should consider writing a book with your hunting stories. I bet you could sell a couple thousand copies just to the members here. At the very least, i hope you'll be telling some of these stories in TX.

It would be great if we could talk that lil Ferret fellar into writing a book too. Lord knows i have mentioned it to him a bunch but i can't get him to do it. I would love to have a copy of both of em.

Guys... thanks for all the praise... as usual I'm a little flustered by it. Need to go out and buy a larger hat now! [Big Grin]

I've got one more "tidbit"... ok, maybe two, but I "have to" leave town in a couple of minutes on another hunting trip. I'll be back Friday late.

Ken... I'll drop a note to ya. I've got an old and dear friend that would drop his teeth if I could put him in that Alaskan... and he'd use it too!

Stay out of trouble and have a good time... can you do both at the same time? [Confused] [thumbsup]

Charlie, my Alaskan blew up! It was the first generation one, too. They came out with another riser later...had a quiver full of broadheads, scattered, top limb hit me on the head, knocked my hat over my eyes. I thought for a second, I couldn't see. Got my eyes out from under the brim, looked at my arms/body for broadhead damage. I was ok but the magnesium riser couldn't be fixed. It made me sick. Bow season was the next week...
It was a good 'finger' shootin'compound. I should of told Fred about it. He came to a shoot in Grifton, NC and I met him but too awestruck to open my mouth about the Alaskan...Fred did tell me to "Pick a spot!"

I always thought from the pictures I saw his rest was low.
I have modified a few of my bows using my dremel tool with great results that has improved my shooting a lot. I have always believed that bows and guns have to fit you right. I have never been afraid to rework a bow handle to fit my hand,or a rest to bring it closer to my line of sight.

Thank you Charlie! I love that little something
in the hat band thing.... For what it represents,
and for who made it famous.

We all do that in my hunting camp. Been doing it
for years. Either some little feather we find,
or a little sprig of Douglas Fir, or my favorite-
a stalk of wild mint. Tradition now. Little
things mean so much for many of us old tradgangers
who savor the lore of the past.
