Austin icon

Austin bought his first traditional recurve in August of 2010. He wanted to be able to shoot a flying duck with a recurve bow (unsuccessful up to this point). In 2011, out of a desire to experience different aspects of archery, he bought his first compound bow. He quickly found himself drawn to competition, and started shooting indoor tournaments with his compound and 3D tournaments with his traditional equipment. Due to his love for recurves, he purchased his first Olympic recurve in 2012. Since that time he alters between Compound, Olympic Recurve, and Traditional Recurve. He can generally be found shooting 3D tournaments with traditional equipment.

In his free time when he is not shooting a bow, Austin is practicing for, preparing for, or shooting in local action pistol competitions. Other interests include Fly Fishing, Hiking, Backpacking, and Camping.
