Stephan Hansen took the win in Men’s Pro this weekend at the NFAA Indoor Nationals in Cincinnati, overcoming a tough field and a long, intense shootoff. The competition was so grueling that twenty-one of the competitors in Men’s Pro Freestyle shot 600 with 120Xs heading into the shootoff on Sunday evening.
In the end, Hansen shot a perfect 25, keeping all five arrows into the X-ring and taking the crown. According to PSE founder Pete Shepley, clutch performances like this are what make Hansen one of the best archers in the world.
“We recognized early on just how special a shooter Stephan is,” stated Shepley. “Year after year he continues to prove us right, and we’re proud to have him on Team PSE.”
The ARCHERY CAPRA WORLD SLAM is a MASSIVE achievement! The challenge is to harvest 12 different species of Capra from around the world, all done with a bow. These hunts are a serious test of strength, skill, and perseverance, as it requires hunting in some of the world’s most challenging environments.
That Pedro has accomplished this with his PSE bow is an amazing achievement. This is just a tease of what’s to come, so be sure to check back on December 11th for the full story!
Team PSE shooter Jack Wallace II won the Men’s Open Pro division this weekend at the ASA Pro/Am in Phenix City, AL. This was Wallace’s second straight major ASA win with his PSE Perform-X after also taking the top spot at the Foley ASA event in February.
According to Wallace, he wasn’t feeling much in the way of extra pressure at the chance to win his second ASA Open Pro title in a row, he was just happy to make find himself in the situation to do so…
“I just felt a sense of relief and happiness that I made it to the dance. On the first day of the tournament, I was not able to capitalize on three different 12 rings at shorter distances, so I thought I left points on the board. On day two I went six targets before I was able to hit my first 12, so I started very slow. By the time I was able to make it to the shoot down, I felt very fortunate and just happy to be there.”
In addition to Wallace’s impressive victory, Team PSE also rocked the Senior Division, with Darin Watts taking the top spot in the Senior Hunter class. PSE shooters Keith Hensley and David Parson took 1st and 3rd respectively in the Senior Known class. Randy Holley took 2nd in Super Senior.
Team PSE also had nine other Top Ten finishes across a variety of classes, including Briley Davis placing 3rd in Women’s K40, Jonathan Shadell taking 2nd in Semi-Pro, and Kody Gregg placing 4th in the Known Pro shoot down.

PSE Proudly Announces the Addition of Jack Wallace II to our Elite Pro Staff!
Jack started shooting archery when he was 7 years old with the help of his dad. He loved the unknown 3D archery game and how it helped prepare him for hunting situations, teaching him how to calm his nerves and take a steady shot. Jack continued to excel, so he turned Open Pro in 1995 and hit the 3D circuit. One year later he won his first ASA tournament in the Pro division. Jack has won every major national, world, and shooter of the year title 3D archery currently offers.
Some of his accomplishments include:
ASA World Classic Champion
ASA Shooter of the Year
ASA Record Holder
IBO World Champion (2-times)
IBO National Triple Crown Champion (3-times)
IBO Shooter of the Year (3-times)
When not shooting and competing, Jack loves teaching and coaching. He is a USA Archery Certified coach and has helped numerous students in several different classes earn national and world archery titles.
When the 3D season is over, you can usually find Jack in the outdoors chasing big game with his bow and arrow. He has taken several Pope & Young class animals including deer, bear, elk, and antelope.
