Thread: 3d Heroes?

    3d Heroes?

    I'm just curious to see who everyone looked up to in the 3d world of archery as kind of their idol or hero? I can remember my dad taking me to shoots at an early age, and all everyone was talking about was Randy Chappell. This was in the 90s but Ive always kind of looked at him like a "legend" in my archery world. Who was everyone else's?

    Shannon Caudle is the first that comes to mind.

    Wayne Nobles, Scott Schultz, Randy Ulmer, Burley Hall, Jackie Caudle. They were all top shooters when I began competing in 3D. Always enjoyed reading about their shooting and the equipment they used. I got to talk to Scott Schultz a lot and he was a wealth of knowledge. But I think Randy Ulmer has to be one of the most analytical shooters ever.

    My oldest likes to watch Levi, Jeff Hopkins, but now he want to watch Jacob and Ty cause they are closer in age to him.

    Yeah, I remember seeing Randy and Sonny Chappel in Robby's. That was pretty cool. Randy Hendrix from watching Buck Masters.

    I guess the guys I look up to the most now would either be Levi Morgan or Nathan Brooks. Luckily we have BowJunky now and I can watch these guys more often.

    My Hero's are Mike & Susan Davis, terriffic shooters and very humble as well. Susan and Mike are great coaches and have helped me a lot over the years.
    We're all getting older and they have had some health issues in the past years but, they still are great embassadors for the sport.

    They always help out in the shop when they are here.
    Love them both!!

    I don't think I gave them Hero status, but lots of respect. Randy Ulmer, Jeff Hopkins, Jack Wallace, Jackie Caudle, Ginger Moorehead.
    Of course, when growing up in my early teens, we had American Sportsman and Fred Bear was the man.

    All of em. I have never been the type to be a fan of one or two no matter if we are talking Football, Nascar, Baseball. I just enjoy the sport overall. I get the biggest kick when an underdog comes forth and slays the giants. I guess Im a fan of the up an comer / risk takers. Like the ASA 2011 Classic.

    3d Heroes?

    Without a question, Dr. Randy Ulmer. Getting to watch him in a shoot off at the Indoor Nationals was the highlight of my year.

    I've only been doing this stuff for about 5 years, and obviously levi is a very talented archer, but I would say I look up to Nathan Brooks or Dan McCarthy the most. But in the pro class, they are ALL awesome and great shooters. It's a flip of a quarter who will win.

    I can remember watching Randy Ulmer, David Stepp, Shanom Caudle, Johny Heath, Allen Conners and others in the shoot offs in the 90's those guys could shoot. Also remember when David Stepp lost the classic to Shannon Caudle and the shooter of the year to Allen Conners in a shoot off.

    Burley Hall and most of the other Pro`s back in the early 90`s come to mind. They all shot great.

    There is no telling what Shannon would have accomplished if he would have continued in archery.

    Larry Weir was awesome as well.

    There's no telling what he's accomplished by leaving it too

    So very true. I attended a prayer service that Shannon preached at Jackie's deer hunt in Alabama. He is a great preacher. I know he has touched a lot of lives.

    Burley Hall, Randy Ulmer, and Randy Chappell. Shot with Chappell when he shot the first perfect score in IBO history at Bedford In. Amazing archer.
