Solomon Freedom "Bear" Brown from "Alaskan Bush People" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Solomon Freedom "Bear" Brown is the third-born son of Billy Bryan Brown and Ami Brown. From the time Bearfirst learned to walk he was happiest in the deep forest. When the family is home in the mountains in the summer months, his time is spent hunting and fishing or doing anything that puts him in the forest, which is so much a part of him. His great peace is found in the wildness of the animals and land.

To Bear, hunting for meat is a job that he does. When the meat locker is full, his true sport begins and he hunts without his gun. It's still with him for protection, but he doesn't take a shot. He likes to see how close he can get to an animal or how long he can watch before they know he's there.

A crowd to Bearis one person more than his family. His respect for nature is matched only by his respect for honor and truth. Surprisingly, for someone who loves the forest so much, it seems his second love is the ocean. The same peace he finds in the wildness of the forest, he finds also in the sea. Onboard their boat Bear works the deck and the fish hole. He cleans, stacks and ices the fish. When the lines are going in, he runs the gear — a first rate deckhand in every way.

Of all seven kids Bear is the only one who has broken any bones. When he was only five he broke his leg only inches from his hip. For almost three months he was in a body cast from his chest down. With something so traumatic, one would think he'd be careful and reserved, but he became the opposite: fearless and full of confidence.

In the winter Bear rides his Arctic Cat snow machine. In the summer, like all of his family, his car is his Lund skiff with a 40 HP Yamaha outboard. Both of these, like everything else he does, he drives and rides to the extreme.
