“Dead On” host Randy Ulmer is the only person to be inducted into both the Bowhunter Hall of Fame for his bowhunting achievements (1999) and the Archery Hall of Fame for his competitive archery achievements (2016). Randy wrote his first piece for Bowhunter Magazine in the summer of ’97, and he has been a regular masthead Contributor since 2003. His popular “The Quest” column now graces the back page of every regular issue of the magazine.
As a competitive archer, Randy has won world and national titles in many different archery disciplines. He medaled in three ESPN Great Outdoor Games (two Silvers and one Bronze, 2002-2004). He won two ASA Men’s Professional World Titles (1994-1996), two NABH Men’s Professional World Titles (1994-1996), two IBO World Titles (1990-1993) and one FITA World Title 1990 (the first archer to ever win a FITA Compound Bow World Championship), and he also took NFAA National and Vegas indoor titles.
As a bowhunter, Randy’s skills are unquestioned. Having grown up in Arizona with a passion for hunting, he has always loved big mule deer and big bull elk, and he has rewritten the record books on numerous occasions when it comes to those species, and he also has vast experience hunting a wide variety of other big-game animals.
Without a doubt, the Bowhunter Magazine & TV team is truly blessed to have such an accomplished contributor, one who also happens to have a doctorate from the University of Washington.
Dr. Randy Ulmer currently lives in Arizona and Colorado, and he spends as much time as he can in the Rocky Mountain high country.
