Herb Erickson (1915-2018)

Born at Goose Lake, just south of the Beaver Lake reserve, local legend Herb Erickson turned 100 years old in November 2015. Herb began learning archery at age 9 and took his bow with him to the front lines during World War II.  He has also shown off his talents at countless provincial and national competitions and mentored young archers in the area. The Lakeland Archery Club’s outdoor practice range is named in his honour.
