Editorial Reviews

A FANTASTIC NEW DOCUMENTARY ABOUT BEARS! Season of the Bear, Volume 4: Southern Bears is the fourth in an international award-winning DVD documentary series about bears. This massive program (3 hours 12 minutes on 3 discs) discusses American Black Bears in the southern states, their habitats, diets, history, behavior, safety, and past and current management, and current and future challenges.

QUADRUPLE AWARD WINNER at the 47th WorldFest International Film Festival! The recent wins for this documentary make a total of 17 international film awards for Kate Marshall Graphics documentaries through the years!
-The highest Platinum Remi Award for Public Service Documentary
-The Silver Remi Award for Nature and Wildlife Documentary
-The Silver Remi Award for Ecology, Environment, and Conservation Documentary
-The Bronze Remi Award for Documentary Program

We meet the bears plus bear managers and experts from these states: Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Kate Marshall Graphics, Inc. tells a great story in this rich presentation of bears in the South, from lowland swamps to mountain peaks. Utilizing their own multi-year wild black bear video and complementing it with photos and video from their guests, they bring the story of southern bears to the forefront of black bear education. Six of the sixteen sub-species of bears in North America are shown.

American Black Bears are beautiful and complex large mammals that have managed to survive alongside humans for a long span of time. Living only in North America, black bears are coping with and adapting to changing habitats, diminishing food sources, new roads and development, as well as increasing numbers of people enjoying the great outdoors. More and more often, bears and people meet. Bear managers keep on top of encounters and education.

Fantastic wild bear footage gives us a well-rounded dramatic and comical view of these bruins. Guests from these organizations share their knowledge, experience, memories and advice about black bears, and also tell why they chose wildlife careers:
- Myron Means, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
- Maria Davidson, Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries
- Brad Young, Mississippi Dept. of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks
- Terri Jacobson, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Mississippi
- Keith Gaulden, Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries
- David Telesco, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
- Adam Hammond, Georgia Department of Natural Resources
- Richard Morton, South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources
- Colleen Olfenbuttel, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission
- David Whitehead, David Brandenburg, Aubrey Deck, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency
- Bill Stiver, Kim Delozier, Rick Varner, Michael Maslona, Lisa Free, National Park Service, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee & North Carolina
- Lisa Stewart, Black Bear Solar Institute, Tennessee
- Frank van Manen, U.S. Geological Survey, University of Tennessee
- T.J. Holland, The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, North Carolina
Other contributors are many, including but not limited to: Black Bear Conservation Coalition, Louisiana; Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation; and a few lucky people who were in the right place at the right time with a camera.

Bring plenty of snacks because once you sit down you will not want to get up. All of The Season of the Bear videos are not only well done but contain a treasure chest of information. The video and narration are top notch. if you care about Bear lore and history the is the go to place. Would highly recommend this to any and all. Children of all ages will find this fascinating. Season of the Bear 4 is the best yet. Crowning achievement.!!!!!!!

This video is 3+ hours of pure educational information regarding black bears. It's great for students and adults alike. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to know everything there is to know about these amazing animals which live right outside our door. It would be the perfect video for teachers who are teaching about black bears as well.

Don't miss this 3+ hours of unique personal stories from wildlife professionals who have dedicated their lives to the Black Bears of the South, overlaid with plenty of wonderful bear video by Kate and Al! As a follow-on to their multi-award-winning Season of the Bear Volumes 1, 2 and 3, Kate Marshall Graphics has created a three-DVD set that was well worth the wait. Starting with a video and photographic overview of all the Black Bear sub-species in North America, Bear 4 then takes us on a state by state tour of the South where wildlife professionals tell their stories ranging from the history of Black Bears in their states, to trials and tribulations of bear and human interaction, while all touching on common themes of educating the public about Black Bears, and the importance of keeping wild bears and human food sources separated.

From Maria Davidson, who runs her state's program to re-establish the endangered Louisiana Black Bear, to David Whitehead of Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, who is working on his state's new master bear management plan, to Bill Stiver, who as Chief Wildlife Biologist in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has the herculean task of balancing the desire of millions of Park visitors wanting to see a Black Bear with the safety of both bears and visitors, to Lisa Stewart of Black Bear Solar Institute, who has been sole caretaker of 133 orphaned and injured Black Bear cubs raised and successfully released back into their wild homes in seven Southern States and the National Park, all have riveting stories and unique Black Bear insights to share with us.

This is the best yet that Kate Marshall Graphics has published for all to enjoy. If you want to learn or already are an avid supporter of wildlife (specifically Bears) at it's best, Season of the Bear IV is one video you don't want to miss. It keeps you interested from beginning to end. This video will get you excited about all productions that are produced & released by Kate Marshal Graphics Inc.
