Jake has been shooting competitive archery since 1951 at the age of 10. He is a certified Instructor/Coach with three National Archery Organizations. He has been active with the Ohio Archers, Idaho Field Archers, GBAA and GAA in Georgia. He is a National Judge for the USAA. He is a life member with the NFAA and USAA. The life sport of archery is more than a hobby—it is a passion. He has always made time to help anyone interested in the history, style of shooting, archery organizations, and local shooting of the bow & arrow. He grew up with the changes in modern archery.
An in-depth guide to the diverse life sport that is archery, Modern Archeryis a collector’s photo book, a historical reference, and, perhaps more importantly, a glimpse into one man’s lifelong obsession with the greatest sport in the world. Since World War II, the equipment and techniques used in archery have evolved at a breakneck pace, and Modern Archery documents it all.
Because archery is not just a fun sport that provides good exercise at any age—more than this, it is a testament to the ingenuity of the human mind as he strives to improve both his results and himself.
