Each week, PSE spotlights one of our amazing dealers or staff shooters. This week it’s young up and coming PSE shooter, Kyle Douglas…
Shooter: Kyle Douglas from Harrisville, UT
Bow: PSE Xpression – Shooting PSE: 6 years
1. How did you get into archery?
I started it in a kid’s league and then transitioned into bowhunting. Eventually, I started doing local tournaments and things just kept going from there.
2. Why do you shoot PSE?
When I was first getting into target archery I tried a bunch of different bows and nothing felt as good as the PSE. Their bow designs just fit me best. I like the way they shoot and they’ve always worked out for me…I’ve never thought about switching to anything else.
3. Do you hunt as well?
Yep. I love hunting elk, it’s my favorite game by far.
4. Do you prefer indoor tournaments, Field Archery or 3D?
I don’t have a preference; I need all the experience I can get. I shoot whatever is available to me locally, I’ve shot Vegas, Lancaster, ATA, some outdoor target stuff. Right now I shoot everything I can.
5. What’s your proudest moment as a competitive archer?
Winning Young Adult in Vegas back in 2015.
6. What advice would you give other competitive archers just starting out?
There are so many different thing you can focus on…getting your bow set-up correctly is an easy one. But my biggest piece of advice is to find a coach you trust and focus on their advice. Sometimes you can get to the point where you listen to too many people and things can get jumbled. Pick one good coach and stick with their advice.
7. What are your goals for the next five years of competition?
Get more experience. Compete at the highest level every shoot. Podium at some high profile events.
8. What makes the PSE brand unique in your opinion?
They stand behind their product, and they have something to offer for everyone. Top level professional shooters, kids, traditional archers. PSE does it all and stands behind every product.
Thanks to Kyle Douglas for taking the time out to speak to us this week. Best of luck at your next shoot, Kyle!
