Dick Mauch is one of the last of his breed. Not only does he know the story, he also lived it. He walked and worked alongside the pioneers of our sport who were there in the beginning. A man who loves the outdoors, as a hunter he has harvested big game from North America as well as Africa.
Also from the Class of 2016 is Bowyer, Owen Jeffery who will be honored posthumously. Owen also has Bear connections, many of you are familiar with Owens bow design and have probably owned and shot one of his bows in your lifetime.
