    Dan & Terry have been running the business for years, decades in fact. Heck they are both at or close to retirement age. Probably just one of the other reasons the company has been for sale for a couple years. I like your comparison to Fred Bear. Both innovators and archery wouldn't be what it is today had it not been for them.
