Hershel and Fred
In 1970, a special bow hunt was conducted by the state of Mississippi. All the great bowhunters throughout the United States were invited. Yes, my Dad was there, along with the most famous archers at that time. He spent a lot of the trip hunting with Fred Bear and enjoyed himself immensely. The main thing I remember is him talking about picking Mr. Bear up after hunting one morning and how they walked around picking up arrows. Fred Bear spent a lot of time shooting at spots on the ground for practice. My Dad was the only one to get a deer. Fred Bear sent him several photos and a nice letter. Here is Dads' favorite.
