Meet Alexandra Wampler, The PSCA Challenger set to take on 2014 PSCA Womens 2015 PSCA Champion of Champions Final.

She started shooting after getting her first gun, a Remington 1100 28 gauge in December of 2004. Three months later at Rooster Ranch in Hilmar California she was competing in Sporting Clays tournaments.

It’s easy to say Alex Wampler was bitten by the Sporting Clays bug from the very beginning and the then 12-year old began training at Birds Landing Hunting Preserve and Sporting Clays.  Starting in E class Alex worked her way all the way to Masters Class in 2010 at the age of 16. She has been an NSCA National Delegate since 2009 a member of Ladies NSCA USA Sporting Clays team 3 years in a row – Sporting and FITASC 2 years each (both 2015) and has won multiple State and Regional Lady Championships as well being the 2013 US Open FITASC Ladies Champion.

In 2014 Alex was invited to be apart of Sporting Clays history as she was selected to be on the 2014 PSCA Inaugural Tour.  Although after the first season she wasn’t able to maintain her Pro Card, at the first stop of the 2015 PSCA Alex burst wildly back into the spotlight as a challenger upsetting the reigning PSCA Women’s Tour Champion Desirae Edmunds and the first Women’s champion on the 2015 Tour.

Alex is a full time student in college focusing on becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at University of California, Davis. She has a passion for animals and during hunting season is a hunting guide for Bird’s Landing with her “wonder dog” and English setter named Cali.

I love to hunt with my dog Cali. I enjoy lifting weights in the garage with my Dad and Cali. I love to scuba dive and I hope to become a vet specializing in marine mammals.

Alex lives in between Sacramento and San Francisco in the Sacramento- San Joaquin river delta. She enjoys another hobby, lifting weights twice a day 6 days a week. Alex trains for clays 3 days a week at Bird’s Landing. Alex along with her father Steve travel as often as possible to shoot in major shoots in hopes to make the next NSCA USA Sporting Team.

On Wednesday we train with skeet and bunker trap. Saturday and Sunday we train on special targets, shoot a round for fun, and support our local club shoots by shooting and volunteering.

In order to continue funding her shooting Alex and her family are planning to open a premium mobile coffee shop and drive it to shoots serving premium refreshments with seasonal varieties.
