Dr. Ralph Everson
Ralph Everson, a 50 year old physician from Belvidere Illinois, has been shooting sporting clays for sixteen years. In January 1990, George Bartelmay of Bartelmay Guns in Morton took Ralph to Diamond S Sporting Clays to shoot his first round. He got hooked and has been shooting sporting clays ever since.
Shouldering a 30” K80 with Comp-N-Choke tubes, Ralph shot 3600 registered targets last season. He shoots White Gold paper 71/2 1oz. loads.
This 2003 Illinois State Hall of Fame inductee and member of the Illinois All State Team for 12 consecutive years has many major shooting accomplishments on his resume:
Illinois State Champion 96, 99, 04, 06 – RU 97, 00, 03, Governor’s Cup Champion 04 and 05, Illinois North Zone Champion 99, 01, Illinois 5-Stand Champion 01, 06, FITASC 03, Illinois State Champion 20ga. 94, 95, 00 - 28ga. 95, 96, 98, 99 - .410 bore 95, 96, 97, 98, 02, and 06. Wisconsin State Champion Non-Resident 92, 96, 00, Champion 5-Stand 00, 03, Miller Lite RU 02, Zone 5 Champion 98, RU 01, 03, Zone 5 FITASC RU 1999. 1999 Nationals M3 .410, M4 World Championship 5-Stand 2001, US Open M4 .410 in 2002, just to name a few of Ralph’s tournament wins.
The most memorable and exiting experience in Ralph’s sporting clays career is watching sons Michael and Jonathon embrace the sport as much as he does and in particular, Michael beating his dad at the Boy Scout Shoot last September at Upland Hunt Club.
The good doctor’s Rx for new shooters: get a gun that is properly fitted, find agood coach to work with regularly, relax and have fun.
