The Fred Bear Museum was a place I read about and never got to see. This was a man who did everything, known as the man's man. A bow hunter and a conservationist. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, awesome pictures on the website. But in reality, no one will ever see this place because Fred Bear died in 2000, just a few years ago. The place shut down and most of the stuffed animals and other memorabilia were sent to other places. My understanding is that the great big bear at the Bass Pro Shop in Orlando, is from the Fred Bear Museum. You can read about it on www.basspro.com
or www.lostparks.com So I regretfully say, I didn't get to meet him. He was known to give tours himself.
