Super Slam Completed by Bowhunter Gary Martin

“Completing the Super Slam is a journey,” said 54-year-old Gary Martin, an SC Johnson technologist and taxidermist.

Gary completed his Super Slam and his Grand Slam of North American wild sheep with this Rocky Mountain bighorn, taken on a hunt in Alberta in November, 2008.

He is the 16th bowhunter to complete the North American 28 and the 8th to complete the North American 29. He started his journey in 1980 and it took him 20 years to complete. If you’re wondering what Gary Martin is going to do now, he doesn’t plan on hanging up his bow. Four of the animals he took on this quest didn’t make Pope & Young, so he’s planning on fixing that. Good luck Gary.
