    It is unusual for an all-around outdoorsman to bring pioneering accomplishments of ethical hunting and conservation to the forefront of hunters’ minds and the outdoor industry.  But Jerry Martin has definitely left his mark.

    Jerry’s hunting days started at age 5 or 6, when his dad took him hunting for squirrels and chasing rabbits with beagles.  “Dad expected 50 squirrels from a box of shells,” Martin says chuckling as he reminisces about those days, “And I tried not to disappoint.”   Over the years, Jerry became an expert marksman with a rifle, compound bow, pistol, and muzzleloader.

    In his hunting career, he has had dozens of trophy whitetail deer kills, several scoring over 200.  Jerry has killed dozens of Turkey Grand Slams with muzzleloader, bow and centerfire, and a few Turkey Royal Slams too.  He has hunted for all types of animals across the nation and in countries around the world.

    In August 2008, Jerry was recognized for his accomplishments and inducted into the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN.  This impressive honor is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated a passion for the outdoors in both fishing and hunting and whose actions and high ethical standards serve as the guidelines for the entire outdoor community.
