The article is self-explanatory and Jim was one of those guys who most never heard of unless they were in archery in the 60's and 70's. Like many Pro archers, Jim worked for several companies including Bear, which the article shows. Jim later worked for Carroll's Archery and had a takedown bow name after him..the Gentleman Jim Hunter. There are 6 pages to the article.

George..Jim Pickering was one of the greats back in the PAA archery days..I'd say that there are a few of us who learned all we could from Jim and some other greats..:)

Did I ever send you a copy of Dave Keaggy's "Power Archery"?..Jim among others, is pictured in that small old book..Long out of print..but a good book concerning form and fitness.. Send me a PM if you want a two part PDF of the old book and include your e-mail..Each part is about 21 MB in size..Jim

Jim, I have that. I bought it back in the early 80's, I think I got it from Anderson Archery. I remember Dave Jr., kicking some butt on the field ranges as an amateur of about 16 years old. Great book that will teach you a lot about how your body works in archery, and ways to improve technique and solidify your form.

Thanks, George. I remember reading about him when I was a teen and young adult. That article was from 1968 when I was junior in college. That was a long time ago. I was 20 years old. :) Jawge

If I remember right I met Jim at the 1990 Western IB0 shoot in Utah. He seemed like a really great guy. For some reason I was thinking that at that time he was associated with Hoyt. I was shooting for a competing company and we had lunch together and a group of us had quite a discussion about speed bows. I did not have a clue as to his history as I was just a hillbilly bow hunter that could shoot but I certainly was impressed with the man. There were some real greats sitting around that table. I didn't know many of them until that day.

God bless you all, Steve
