Ed Rohde                    1926 - 2010



Class of 2006

Ed began his archery career in 1959 and started bowhunting in 1965. On the target side, for more than 20 years, Ed was known as “Mr. Consistency.” He dominated professional archery, NAA and NFAA events. Archery tournaments were Ed’s favorite form of the sport.

In 1962, while attending his first NFAA National, he had an opportunity to shoot in a group with Rube Powell. Rube passed along a thought that stayed with Ed throughout his entire competitive career — “never give up until the last arrow is shot.”
