Fred Eichler
Fred’s passion for bowhunting has taken him all over the world. He truly believes that any animal with a bow is a trophy, and his personal quest to complete the North American Super Slam with a recurve bow reflects that state of mind.

If you ever run across Fred in the woods or at your local bow shop, you’ll be greeted with a sturdy handshake and a big smile.
