Nikon Prostaffer Randy Oitker Sets Three World Records
London, England – -(AmmoLand.com)-Randy Oitker of Plainville, Illinois recently broke three world records while filming in London, England for the television show “Guinness Book of World Records Smashed.” The 22-year old exhibition archer simultaneously shot four arrows into four targets, five arrows into five targets and six arrows into six targets.
Oitker is also well known for his exhibition Lifesaver Shots. “When I was young, the archery shop I practiced at offered candy for the customers to eat. I used to take Lifesavers candy and put them on targets to see if I could hit them.” said Oitker. “When I started doing exhibition shows, I would put Lifesavers in my show to demonstrate my skills because everyone can relate to the size of a Lifesaver.”
In addition to 17 national titles, two world championships, three shooter-of-the-year titles, and now three world records Oitker focuses on getting more people involved in archery and the outdoor shooting sports. “If I can inspire one kid to pick up a bow and go shooting or hunting, I have done my job,” said Oitker.
When not traveling across the country for precision shooting exhibitions, Oitker owns a cattle farm in Illinois where he enjoys hunting with his father and sister. His ideal hunt would be to shoot a world record buck on his family farm and his ideal exhibition shoot would be appearing in a major motion picture.
Oitker is on the prostaff for Nikon, Realtree, Matthews, Muzzy, Cabela’s, Easton, Tink’s. Hunter Safety System, Limbsaver, EZ-KUT, Turbo Nocks and Easy Eye Archery Products.
