2005 Fall Black Bear Bowhunt With Fred Lutger
by Robert Hoague

Group #1: The KIrby Group

Kirby Knackstedt brings up a group of Illinois bowhunters every two years. A lot of the guys have been here before and it is always fun having them in camp. They are guys who know all about working hard, playing hard and hunting hard.

A Note by Fred Lutger - Kirby’s group of 13 hunters is a prime example of why I am a hunting guide. I guide for the pure enjoyment of experiencing the joy and friendship of the hunters I guide. I could just come up to Canada and shoot a bear on my own, but this is like going on 13 bear hunts. I get to be a part of each hunt.

Kirby Knackstedt has constantly brought a group of hunters who are serious bowhunters. Not only are they good hunters, they are fun and a pleasure to have in camp. I do appreciate the hard work Kirby does in helping with stands and tracking and dragging bears.

I'm sure Kirby puts together hunts for the same reason I do. Hunters and outdoorsmen are the best. And Kirby, you are at the top of this elite group of people. I'm glad we can enjoy these great times in the outdoor together. I'm looking forward to our next hunt. Thank you all.
