    Loss of an Archery Legend ~ Gail Martin

    With heavy hearts the Martin Family regretfully announces....

    Gail Martin passed away peacefully July 21, 2013 surrounded by family.

    Gail's life long love of Archery inspired him and his wife Eva to start Martin Archery in 1951. Together with their sons Terry & Dan, they grew Martin Archery from a String & Arrow company into a industry leader.

    Martin Archery is known for their innovative designs and world class service which started with Gail's invention of revolutionary fletching and string making equipment. His love and devotion for traditional archery made him key in the design and direction of the Howatt/Martin traditional bows & accessories.

    Gail was a senior member of Pope & Young and proudly an official measurer.
    He was a 20th Century inductee of the Bowhunters Hall of Fame. In 2011 he was inducted into the Archery Hall of Fame.

    His love of archery and contribution to the sport will forever benefit the Archery community.

    ArcheryTalk sends its heart felt condolences to
    the Martin family, devoted employees at the Martin Plant, and his many friends.

    A true loss. R.I.P. Gail.
