Hometown: Franklin, TN
Chris is a self-described “good ol’ country boy trained in the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta” but don’t let his unassuming personality fool you. He’s been training all of his life for a competition like this that demands proficiency with a wide range of weapons–and not just guns. “I can throw knives, shoot any kind of bow and shoot slingshots. There are very few people that can cover the whole spectrum. When it comes to competition, Chris is all business. “I’m about as competitive as they come and as tough as a rattlesnake!” A serious all-around competitor, this runner up in Field & Stream’s 2009 Total Outdoorsman Challenge has won countless state and national championships in both archery and long rifle.
