Ben Pearson

Category B - Bowhunters who have shown Excellence in the Design and Manufacturing of Archery Equipment


Many have said Ben Pearson was the Henry Ford of building archery equipment. As a young man it was the Boy Scouts of America that introduced him to archery and making his own archery equipment. As a young man he worked for an Arkansas Power Co. and in his spare time he improved on his archery equipment and even performed exhibitions as a trick shooter. During the depression an Oklahoma oil man named Carl Haun became acquainted with Ben Pearson and through the 1930's the name "Pearson Archery" was being used all over the U.S.A., Schools, Boy Scouts and summer camps and even in many foreign countries.

After World War II, bowhunting caught on and Ben's designs for advanced hunting bows and arrows and later his famous Dead Head broadhead was being used by thousands of bowhunters. Ben's own personal hunting skills became well known. Ben's bowhunting museum displays many North American big game and includes life-size mounts of his polar bear and grizzly bears.

Ben Pearson and his archery equipment stand alone as one of the early day achievers in the archery and bowhunting world.
