Default History lesson Anyone reconize this guy?

Lets see if some of these oldtimers can reconize one of the greatest shooters of all time from my state.

He won the world Fita Championships.

DB, I don't recognize him and I'm Old as Dirt but honestly I never followed competitive Archery much except what the local boys do.

I met Fred Bear in 1982 and spent a long time talking to him. It was a honor and he was a Great Man & Bowhunter also.

I would have loved to have shared a Mountain Bowhunting camp with him for a week or 2
