Stigers Sticks It 
At State

Shelbyville shooter Corey Stigers, in 2011, won his first National Pro/AM archery tournament, claimed Shooter of the Year, but missed being State Champion by a single point. He took a year and a half off from competition, came back this year, and won it all.

Stigers recently won, not only won another National Pro/Am, he won two. He won the Metropolis Superman City Classic, then went to the Illinois State Shoot and claimed Shooter of the Year. However, this year he also shot his way to the state championship.

I’ve been shooting competitively in ASA for eight years and this is my first state championship,” said Stigers. “I have been Shooter of the Year four times.”

Stigers (age 34) has had sponsors during his previous competitions. But after a year and a half, he shot this year without a sponsor.

“I was all on my own this year,” Stigers said. “I wanted to get wins. Then this winter I’ll work on getting sponsors.”

It cost him more paying his own way, but it was even more satisfying when he won big.

Stigers shoots ASA (Archery Shooters Association) tournaments aiming at 3-D targets of various animals at various distances in a wooded course. Stigers shoots in the Pro/Am division in the Known 45 Class. Known 45 means the distance to the target is known and ranges from 20 to 45 yards.

“I got back into it this year by going to Arthur in February for a shoot between archery shops,” Stigers said. “I then shot in some local shoots.”

Stigers went to London, Kentucky in June for a Pro/Am shoot. A perfect score is 400. Stigers shot 448, getting 46 bonus points. He beat the runner-up by 110 points (338).

He then went to Metropolis for the Superman Classic. The Classic is a 3-day shoot, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, prior to the Matthews Illinois Pro/AM. There are three daily winners, who then shoot against each for the overall winner.
