Zwickey Archery


Here is my consolation elk from the Missouri River Breaks, MT, after I stalked a much larger 6x7 bull for nearly two weeks in 1996. The rut wound down, the bigger bull vanished, and this nice one took his place in the herd. Not one of my largest bulls, but a nice Pope and Young Club specimen taken in October just before the end of archery season. I was backpacking out the meat when I bumped into the big boy at close range, the lucky devil! I always vividly remember the ones that got away.

Zwickey Archery Inc. has been manufacturing the “World’s Best Broadheads for the World’s Best

Photos from Zwickey Archery's post 11/15/2020

We are deeply saddened to announce that Jack Zwickey passed away earlier this week. Below is a brief synopsis of his life. We strongly encourage those that want to honor his memory to share a story or use this forum as an opportunity to reminisce.

Jack Zwickey was an interesting character that lived a full 91 years doing what he loved prior to passing away peacefully on Tuesday, November 10th, 2020. Jack was a successful businessman, who contributed significantly to the world of archery. He and his father, Cliff, founded Zwickey Archery, Inc. where they produced “the world’s best broadheads”. Zwickey broadheads have been made continuously since 1938, making them the oldest broadhead on the market in terms of uninterrupted production. Jack was very proud of the fact that he was fortunate enough to turn his favorite hobby into his livelihood, which is something that most cannot say. He remained active until the very end of his life. He went to work each and every day with all of his pets in tow (except for Sunday morning which was always dedicated to going to church), he took long walks on his property in Wisconsin (again with his dogs tagging along), he went skiing, he went swimming, and he frequently ventured out to enjoy his favorite symphony concert. Jack was always on the move. I think it is safe to say there will never be anyone like him. He was kind, he was generous, and above all he was a quirky man that was hard not to love. For instance, Jack had a strict rule that the employee’s must bring all of their pets to work, which made for a fun but distracting office life. Even though he ran a successful business, Jack would giggle with pride when he told you he had bought his ‘new’ sweater at a garage sale for one dollar. He would reuse the same Styrofoam cup over and over until it could no longer hold his ‘nice and hot’ coffee. With his tattered and pet-hair covered clothes, he was often mistaken for a homeless man, and on a few occasions concerned citizens would buy him ice cream or meals. But, with as little as he would ever do for himself, he poured everything he had into others. His generosity knew no bounds, whether he was helping a local business during a rough time, sending shoeboxes full of gifts overseas for Christmas, sending dozens of underprivileged kids to bible camp every year, or just treating the employees to a special meal to break up the monotony of the work week, he was always looking for ways to help those he thought needed it. Those who did not know him well may have thought he was a little eccentric, and they were right, but anyone that had the privilege of knowing him were better people for it.

Jack’s life’s work of manufacturing “The world’s best broadheads” will continue on in his memory by his beloved employee, Joyce Hughes, who has worked alongside Jack for 32 years.

Zwickey Archery - History of the Judo 06/02/2015

Zwickey Archery - History of the Judo

“Judo® is so strong that unless it is misplaced, you may only need to buy one- ever. At least two men (one in Nebraska and one in Michigan), claim to have shot the same Judo® on the same arrow for over 20 years.” –Don Kauss

Did you know the Judo® took over a decade to perfect, and it may have never been mass produced if it wasn’t for Fred Bear!? An article written beautifully by Don Kauss in Traditional Bowhunter’s newest issue explains a complete history on how the Judo® came to be! There may be a million copies, but Zwickey Judo’s were the first, and are still the best.

Want more proof of their strength? Check out this video of Jack Zwickey testing his own Judo’s by chopping down a tree with the same 3!

We want to take a moment to honor and silently thank those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to keep everyone in our great country save and free. As we go about our day, let us keep them in our memory, and not forget that we are able to enjoy the luxuries of today, because others have fought for our freedom to do so.

Although this a day to pay homage to those who have died for this country, we think it important to give thanks for those who have stepped up and taken the places of the fallen. So, to those that are currently making sacrifices for our country, we thank you.

Another great Throw Back Thursday photo. If you've ever been to the Pope and Young Museum in Rochester, Minnesota you might recognize this picture. They used it when Cliff Zwickey was inducted into the Archery Hall of Fame! The picture itself was taken in 1938, and much like the last photo, Cliff is holding another one of his handmade Yew and Osage hinged bows.

Today we received these incredible photographs of a very beaten-up Zwickey Eskimo. It has a crazy and terrifying story behind it…

In 1985, this arrowhead was used to save the life of Bill Hill, a guide in Montana after he was charged by a bear in the mountains. The man who shot the bear, Joe Skipp, was kind enough to send us these pictures of the blade used to save the guide’s life! He commented, “I shot into the Grizzly at 4'. Up behind the hump into the spine area. Not sure if the ferrule was broken when the arrow snapped off or the Investigators damaged the head removing it.”

The guide, and both the hunters that were there at the time were charged with killing a grizzly bear illegally, but were found innocent after a seven day trial.

If you want more details on the crazy story here's were to find some:
