His love for bow hunting began more than fifty years ago. Ken Yeater from Reynolds continues to hit the bullseye. Ken is just the twentieth person to be inducted into the Iowa State Archery Association Hall of Fame.

Yeater preaches visualization and repetition, form and shot sequence,  a positive, relaxed mental approach when stepping to the line. At the Davenport Valley Archers indoor range, he hits a target consistently from twenty yards away.
