Rick, you just reminded me: I have that knife and box! I just went and looked at them in the disply cabinet. Still as beautiful as ever. You did a great job on both and the finger joints on the box really would have made Jerry smile if he had seen them. Thank you!

The Choctaw bow that Jerry made for John Rook has been donated to PBS, by John, and will be on display at the upcoming banquet in Pittsburgh. It won't be in the auctions as John wants PBS to keep it for good for all to enjoy, not just who brought the most cash. Thank you, John. I know Jerry would have appreciated what you have done.

John is the most extraordinary person I have ever known. Donating their Jerry Pierce Choctaw is something very few owners would do. We were blessed with a donated Choctaw for auction at the UBI last year. These fellows deserve our alocades and deepest appreciation.

After this thread started, I was digging around and found a couple of my old magazines that have Jerry's bows on them. I thought I'd post pics of them as an addition to this thread.

When I was accepted as a regular in PBS in 1987, I shortly thereafter recieved a letter in the mail from a fellow named Jerry Pierce. It was a welcome to the club sort of thing, but outside the PBS infrastructure. It was individual to individual; and you can't help noticing such things. I knew the organization was fraternal...but that really proved it. At the time, I didn't know who Jerry Pierce was and I wasn't aware that he had grown up in the same small town that I had in Mississippi. I doubt he knew it either.

At the time I was much younger and I loved to quail hunt (we actually had quail back then) and a particular farmer that knew my grandfather had a place that I visted quite often. To make long story short, we got to talking late one afternoon and I was explaining my addition to bowhunting. He said that you 'ought to meet my nephew Oren, he really loves it as well'. He mentioned that years ago that he moved to Illinois. Just being polite, I asked him what Oren's last name was and he said "Pierce". The light bulb went off in my head and asked did anyone ever call him "Jerry". He explained that was what all the people "up north" called him but he was really "Oren!"

I introduced myself to Jerry who was working the PBS sign up table in 1992 at St Louis. I said, "how are you doing Mr. Oren". He looked up over his glasses and relied "you must be from Mississippi!"

His son and Jerry's wife (Ms Betty) resides just a few miles down the road from me and we vist from time to time. A couple of weeks ago I took one of Jerry's deer to be scored for Compton's new book to be published. Unfortunately it scored just a little under the minimum. Regardless, I couldn't help but think of the history and honor to have been asked to do that task by the family.

I only met Jerry that one time but I'm glad that I had the opportunity to meet him when I did.
