Frank Pearson’s Archery Background

Archery has been a major part of my life since 1949; that’s when I began bow hunting. As time passed (about 15 years) I went from hunting to target shooting where I joined the professional ranks in 1966.

During my professional career, I have been sponsored by the following bow manufacturing companies: Wing Archery, Outers/Astro, Precision Shooting Equipment, Browning Archery, and Mathews.

AFC Carbon Arrow Co. sponsored me for 11 years. I not only shot for them I also did research and development for them.  I shot for AAE and Toxonics Sight Company for over 35 years. Numerous other archery accessory manufacturers provide me with equipment and monetary support in exchange for promotion and research and development of their products.

Throughout the years, Frank worked for Astro Archery, Check-It Sights and PSE Archery, and was a technical advisor for Browning Archery and Bear Archery. This experience along with his years of shooting has provided invaluable information on bow setup, tuning, and repair.

When I worked for PSE, I managed the limb production lines and did research and development for 7 years.

I participate in as many tournaments as I can. I primarily shoot target archery, but I have and hope to continue to participate in the unmarked 3-D target tournaments, as well.

I  have been ranked number one professional in men's freestyle three times, once in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, and have been in the top ten for many years. I was ranked number one Senior Professional in the National Field Archery Association for 2001 and 2002.

In the 80’s I came out with one of the first instructional archery videos (The Secrets of the Pros) and now have a line of instructional CDs. Some of them I’ve made in conjunction with Lanny Bassham of Mental Management Systems and others I made myself.

My wife Becky was my first student. I met her while working for PSE and helped her with her shooting. Her accomplishments are listed below mine.

Thanks for visiting and hope to hear from you soon,


Frank Pearson
