Who is your favorite Archer and why?Fawn Girard and Dilly Bar Buzzsaw. Both of them are fearless and willing to shoot every discipline of archery. I respect the heck out of all around archers that don't spend all their time being specialists. Same reason I follow Brady, Paige Pierce, Dave Cousins, and Jessie Broadwater.
What got you started in Archery?
The love of being out in the woods in the fall. Trying to catch the deer on a nice 55° day.
Do you have any superstitions when shooting? My favorite meal on a shooting day is a McGriddle sandwich. That's about as close to a superstition I have. Haha!
What is your favorite event to go to and why? Honestly, it's USA Archery Target Nationals and US Open. It's a whole lot of shooting both individuals and teams with some head to heads mixed in. I won't miss this one if I ever have a choice in the matter.
What is your current set-up and poundage you shoot? For the time being it's a Hoyt Xi riser, 39# on the fingers Integra limbs, beiter plunger and nocks, spig rest, custom weight (future Yost option) since the Xi is a little thicker in the stabilizers bushing area, my custom string with Spectra string, Jager JD3 grip, and Maxima recurve RZ arrows with 70mm XS wings.
What is one piece of advice you would give to any Archer? For new archers, I'd say get out and compete at some big shoots and learn things as fast as you can. For the experienced archers, remember, this is supposed to be fun. Keep it that way!
