Here we are in Episode 14 with Paige Gore. She started shooting archery at 18 months old. Both her parents shot, so they took her and her brother to the range with them instead of leaving them at daycare. She shot 3D tournaments around the west coast until she was about 10, then they started attending Vegas. Not too long after Vegas, she discovered FITA and decided to give it a try. She shot the state FITA tournament and broke all of the state records. Soon after she decided to go to a national FITA in which she won and broke quite a few national records. After that she was hooked. She then decided she wanted to break as many records as possible, and set that as a new goal. To date she currently holds or have broken around 115 state national star FITA and world records. Next she decided to try for the United States Archery Team (USAT), and was able to qualify for that her first year at the age of 13. She also qualified for her first junior world championships and traveled to Turkey where she won the team gold. The following year, she remade USAT and requalified for the next junior world championships, where she managed to win another team gold as well as the individual gold. She has continued shooting FITA and qualified for the USAT team every year that she has tried since. She attended the most junior world championships out of anyone in the world to the best of her knowledge. She was able to go to 5 before aging out.

She became an NFAA pro at the age of 15, and she thinks that was a big step for her. She has continued to grow as an archer and has enjoyed NFAA events the most.

A few other things she has done since that time include winning the IFAA world championships and breaking a few world records at that one event, and she continues traveling with Team USA and shooting different events all around the world. Her list of accomplishments goes on and we will do our best to cover a bunch of it in the show!

This year she managed to win Redding, OPA, the Dakota Classic, the Big Sky Open, NFAA Field Nationals, NFAA Outdoor Target Nationals, NFAA Shooter of the Year, and she placed second at the Pan American Championships in Costa Rica. 

In addition to target archery, she grew up hunting and still actively hunts today, both with a bow and with a gun. Hunting has always been a big part of her life along with the target side of the archery equation.

In this episode we cover:

  • Paige’s start into archery.
  • How you can cope with stress in any archery situation.
  • Paige’s shooting sequence.
  • Paige’s take on monetizing her passion.
  • Paige’s advice on getting started into the tournament circuit.

Here we are in Episode 12 with Lexi Lou. For those of you who don't know, her real name is Alexi Quinn.  Don't ask where the nickname came from - friends and family started calling her Lexi Lou when she was young, and she guesses it just has a good ring to it.  With separated parents, Lexi bounced around between Southeast Missouri and Central Wisconsin in her childhood, but she is a cheesehead at heart.  

As a kid, she was a tomboy.  Whether she was playing in the mud, fishing with her brother, or gun hunting with her dad, as long as she was outside with the boys, she was happy. When she was 12 years old she joined the Boys and Girls Brigade and started shooting archery. That grew into a passion for shooting 3D tournaments and ultimately her love for having a bow and arrow in her hand. She got a job at Mega Sports in Missouri as a bow tech when she was 17. Her passion for archery grew even greater as she learned the ins and outs of the archery equipment she was working on. She was also able to develop relationships with a few of her co-workers in order to gain permission to hunt on new land. This was all the confidence she needed in order to take her outdoor lifestyle to the next level. When she moved back to Wisconsin to go to college to obtain her firefighting degree, she started scouting, managing land, and hunting both private and public land. As a female this was difficult but it was her only option to keep her passion for bow hunting alive. She eventually met a group of friends who were big into waterfowl hunting and started dropping ducks as well. She hates to say it, but “she would almost rather be in a duck blind then a tree stand come fall.”  

Now, she is working trade shows and building relationships with companies in the outdoor industry all because of the connections she made and the people she met along her journey. Hunting and the outdoors holds a special place in her heart. It has given her confidence, discipline, and helped her through some of the toughest times in her life. The value that it has brought to her is something that she wants to share with others.

Follow your dreams. Work Hard. Stay Motivated. Success and Happiness will follow.

In this episode Lexi and I cover:

  • Filming and how you can get started.
  • Helping your kids get started into archery.
  • Her trip to becoming sponsored in the outdoor world .
  • Stand hunting tips and tactics to increase your success.
  • Blind hunting tips and tactics to increase your success.
  • Some helpful social media tips to help you grow your following.
  • And much more…

Here we are in Episode 11 with Niki Tilley. Niki grew up on a small farm in the mountains of North Carolina. She learned at a young age that you hunt to eat. She helps out on the family farm and raised cattle with her Grandparents, where she learned they would butcher a few to put meat on the table. Her grandpa is the person who first started teaching her about hunting, the outdoors, and guns. She started by having target practice in the pasture using old cans as targets. When she was old enough, her Grandpa began taking her to the woods to hunt deer. Her grandpa was by her side when she killed her first deer, which happened to be a buck. As the years passed on, Niki and her Grandfather’s bond continued to strengthen as they enjoyed the outdoors together and he passed along his knowledge of the great lifestyle they live today. Niki has recently taken up the archery lifestyle, and is absolutely loving the journey. She is now traveling the world, hunting with friends, modeling for companies, and has hopes of one day being able to take her Grandpa on his dream hunt. 

In this Episode we cover:

  • Niki’s start into the outdoors and hunting.
  • Niki’s start into archery.
  • A few social media tips to help you CRUSH it on social media and monetize your passions.
