Randy began his hunting adventure around 30 years ago when his brother Rusty gave him a bow and took him hunting. Randy and Rusty purchased 12 Easton aluminum arrows in the summer and practiced so hard that the arrow shafts lost their anodizing. Over time Randy polished his hunting skills as he brought down one game after the other.
In addition, he began winning several archery awards including winning the ASA, IBO, and NABH Men’s Professional World Title twice, and the FITA World title once. Furthermore, he won the VEGAS and NFAA National indoor titles.

In fact, his wife Tammy too has taken down huge rams and other game whilst hunting together with Randy. Randy is also an avid athlete and loves to compete in mountain marathons, mountain biking, adventure racing, etc.
Randy believes that hunters must use different release aids based on their applications. He advocates the use of the back tension release in indoor shooting. Similarly, he advocates the use of the thumb release aid during outdoor target shooting, especially if conditions are windy. For hunting, he prefers the Index finger trigger release. Randy believes that there are several individual components that need to come together as one for a good shot.
