The World's Leader in Promoting Traditional Archery & Bowhunting
The great old archer and archery supplier dealer, Hugh Rich, told me that when a certain, very famous, Hollywood archer went to a shoot, he made sure Larry Hughes was not there competing.
And a lefty too!
My Dad used to let me have sips of his Pabst B.R. beer after we (mostly he) were done working in the garden and we were relaxing in Adirondack chairs (that he made) on the front lawn. Ma would be in the kitchen snapping fresh string beans or cleaning just-picked beets for supper. I was about 10 or so. I remember those days very fondly. The beer tasted like donkey $#!*.
From my study of archery history, there are many very talented people that plied their skills over time with the bow and feathered shaft. I find it very interesting and enriching to read and learn about them.
Here's another photo of this great champion:
@Fred Anderson He’s proud of his Robin Hood.
I knew the story of the "Famous Archer" but I didn't realize it was Larry Hughs who was the Champion..
Larry shot instinctively at tournaments, but some time after he retired from competition he had Hugh Rich install a sight.
The Pro Strap in the photo was not his.
Check his form out!
Aiming fluid. I'm a coupla quarts low.

Well....I know you can buy the poster on e*ay for about $10.
