Bears I Have Met - and Others

A number of "true" bear stories by a noted hunter, "accumulated and written during a quarter of a century of intermittent wanderings and hunting on the Pacific slope." This link for educational purpose only. Please remove file from your computer after familiarization.

“After some years of peaceful slumber, Mr. Kelly’s most excellent book of bear stories was roused to life by a recent criticism of Mr. Seton, the question being where Mr. Seton got his material for his bear stories, for a number of people suggested that it was taken from Mr. Kelly’s book. With the merits of this controversy, ‘ourselves have naught to do,’ but the matter in Mr. Kelly’s book is excellent.” -Forest and Stream, Volume 67, July 7, 1906

These bear stories were accumulated and written during a quarter of a century of intermittent wanderings and hunting on the Pacific Slope, and are here printed in a book because they may serve to entertain and amuse. Most of them are true, and the others--well, every hunter and fisherman has a certain weakness, which is harmless, readily detected and sympathetically tolerated by others of the guild. The reader will not be deceived by the whimsical romances of the bear-slayers, and he may rest assured that these tales illustrate many traits of the bear and at least one trait of the men who hunt him.
