Jerry started shooting a bow because it extended the hunting season. After he was introduced to tournament archery he was “hooked!”
“A local shop owner named Jim Silverthorne took time and interest to teach me how to shoot a bow correctly; it’s because of him that I still hold to the fundamentals of a good shot today.”
His favorite part of archery is the “challenge of having to make a good shot consistently and being the best I can be.” He also has a love for the competition.
To any new archers, Jerry says, “Learn how to shoot a bow correctly; concentrate on good shooting form and focus on the basics of shooting. Keep the poundage low so you can enjoy the sport. It’s not about the power, it’s about the shot.”
Jerry supports his local archery clubs by participating in tournaments and sharing knowledge of the sport of archery with anyone who needs pointers on shooting or equipment.
In his free time, Jerry enjoys hunting white-tail deer and playing golf.
Jerry’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, began showing interest in archery when in Middle-School. “Tiffany soon joined the Hunter Safety Team at school, which I helped coach. We shot together at competition level every year until she started college. This was an important and very special time in my life. Encourage your children in this sport. You will never regret the memories that are made.”
Jerry Dubree’s personal testimony regarding Mathews bows and Zebra strings:
“I have shot a lot of different bows in my life and Mathews outperforms them all. I believe it’s because of the feel and ease with which one can tune them due to the solo-cam technology. I use Zebra Twist on my hunting bow and Mathews Premium on my tournament bow. They are both high-quality strings and you can’t compare them to any others on the market.”
