Bears have long been one of Clay's passions, and they are currently a big focus of his professional work. Bears are iconic of American wilderness and hunting adventure and they are thriving all across North America. The increasing numbers of black bears and the expansion of their range is a testament to the success of the North American model of wildlife conservation. Clay is the owner/publisher of Bear Hunting Magazine, the nations only all-bear hunting print publication. Even more than hunting bears, he's happy that we've got bears to share the planet with.
