Erika Anschutz - Alpen's Red-Hot Archer
When we caught up with Anschutz, she was on her way to Chula Vista, California, to qualify for the FITA, the International Archery Federation, World Championship trials. Anschutz has: ranked #1 in NAA National Standings in either Cadet Compound or Junior Compound from 2000-2006; ranked #2 in the 2006 NFAA Pro Points; been a member of the U.S. World Outdoor Archery Team (Senior Compound) in 2005 and 2007; been a member of the NAA Junior U.S. Archery Team (Junior Compound) in 2005-2007. For 12 years, Anschutz has shot tournament archery. "I can't remember a time when I haven't used Alpen optics," Anschutz says. Question: When did you start shooting the bow? Anschutz:My dad, Steve, shot tournament archery his entire life, and he started my sister and me shooting when I was 6-years old." Question: What major tournaments have you won? Anschutz:I've been to six world championships in six countries. Anschutz:I don't know. Anschutz:They're great optics. Anschutz:It's critical, because if you can't see where your arrows are laying in a target, you don't know how to adjust your sights and compensate for wind movement. Anschutz:The ability to come to a steady anchor is innate in some people. You can't really teach someone how to hold a bow steady. You have to practice, develop muscle memory and then have a talent that you train and perfect. Question: What bow do you shoot? Anschutz:I shoot a 2006 Hoyt ProElite with XT 2000 limbs Anschutz:I like it because it's a cam and 1/2 bow. Anschutz:My arrows are coming out of the bow at about 230 feet-per-second, and I'm shooting a 45-pound bow with a 27-1/4-inch draw length and a 600 X10 Easton arrow. Question: How do you handle the pressure of the competition when you're called to the line to shoot, and thousands of people are watching you? Anschutz:I've learned to handle the pressure from my experience in shooting in so many tournaments. Anschutz: I've gone as far as I can in competitive shooting with the compound bow. Anschutz:I use my Alpen Shasta Ridge 10x42 mm binoculars in field competition because they're handier than the spotting scope.
