I just received word that my good friend and hunting buddy Jerry Simmons of Alabama passed away last night after a long illness. It was expected but still tears at my heart. I loved the man. He was about Dad's age, and like my father, a natural woodsman. I've lost both of my parents this year and now Jerry is gone. I was lucky to have spent many days afield with Jerry, a good man and an extremely witty one. Legendary longbow exhibition shooter Byron Ferguson introduced me to Jerry. I know that Byron is taking this very hard. Prayers for Jerry's wonderful wife and for all who loved him.

... in case you aren't familiar with Jerry Simmons he was the inventor of the Simmons Shark broadheads and many other efficient and well thought out pieces of hunting equipment. He was the best woodsman that I ever knew, hands down ... and keep in mind that I knew Fred Bear, another good and talented man.

Prayers to the Simmons family. I got to hunt at his camp in Alabama several years ago and heard many a story about his bowhunting skill.

I am so very sorry for your loss and that of the family and friends as well.

Abba please wrap your loving, care, and compassionate arms around those who are hurting from this loss Lord.

Please allow them to feel your presence in a very supernatural way Father.

Whatever blessing are needed, please provide.

I ask this in your son's name. Amen!

His servant, Mudd

Prayers for the Simmons family a friends I will be thinking of Jerry every day I hunt this year with my arrows tipped with 165 land sharks that I bought a long time ago when Jerry was still at the helm . I hope I have success so in a small way I can commemorate his memory.
God bless.

Very sad to hear.....I met him at the Buckarama in Georgia many moons ago and that meeting changed the way I hunt. He was free with information and was a gem of a guy to talk too, knew his stuff and had perfected some hunting equipment that has stod the test of time. I was hunting just last night, still using a Simmons climbing belt. RIP Jerry.
