William “Bill” Foster – A Hunter Who Met Author Ernest Miller Hemingway

William “Bill” Foster was a National Rifle Association member and a big game hunter; who traveled to Africa and other continents for wild animals.

William Foster met author William Hemmingway during his travels.

In the 1900s, William established the restaraunt “Foster’s Bighorn” in Rio Vista, California.

Over time William Foster had over 300 animals, that he hunted, hanging on the walls of Foster’s Bighorn. Currently there are only 200 animals up on the wall, due to the degrading of the animal skin over the decades of the ones that were removed.
