Hung out with this guy for about 6hrs today talking bowhunting! Had him sign my daughters custom long bow! Really enjoyed listening to his stories. Very humble guy! He will be at the convention all week!
Legend? Hell thats just Jack! ??
Met him once at SCI; very personable.
That’s awesome Tanner!
who is it ??
A true gentleman and a humbled bowhunter. Total Class !!
Had to be an awesome day, I'm jealous!
It was awesome! I would love to hunt with him!
I met him at the Kuujjuaq airport in 2006, nice guy
Didn't that guy shoot something once? ;)
I didnt realize his brown bear held the WR for 18 years
Wasn`t he right behind Adams for the Super Slam?
I think you’re right, scoot. Most of his stuff was just shot once.
Jack was our speaker two years ago at the KBA Convention/Banquet, and did a great job. Then he hung, telling stories, with the likes of Palmquist and a few of us til he flew out the next morning...never slept! A true living legend, a machine, and a helluva nice guy!
and a Doctor/Surgeon no less and a father of a great accomplished daughter bow hunter also!
I know hes completed the slam twice, somewhere I seen he was first to complete the slam with a bow?
He did complete the Slam......but was not the first. Chuck Adams and then Jimmie Ryan was the first with a bow, I believe.
I think Jack Frost was the first to get the FNAWS with a bow.
I was reading an article where the author was totalling what it would cost for him to complete his north american slam and it was in the range of 200-250,000 dollars so at that price I doubt I'll ever get to legend status lol but good for those that can I guess.
I've never met him, but it seems hard to fault that guy, he has done it all. First to complete the grand slam with a bow, then a super slam. Dedication, from his profession to his bow hunting accomplishments. I admire these older guys. They were trailblazers and bowhunting just seemed more difficult back then.

Met him in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. I believe it was 1987 when he shot a monster shiras moose there. That's how I learned the gutless method of breaking down animals. Had one hell of a party in Bear Lodge that night, and yes the moose head was center stage on a table.
Honored to call him a friend. Come to the P&Y Convention and hang out with Jack.... bring a few bottle caps! Ed F
Maybe $200-250,000 if you live where you can hunt many species unguided -- and are a very good/lucky hunter. For most folks it would cost a lot more.
