Aaron Willoughby has been an ATA competitive trapshooter since 1995, when he first registered targets in the sub-junior ranks. Growing up in Clay City, Kentucky, his parents started taking him to local trap clubs soon after he was born.
After turning fourteen, he fired at his first clay target at the Montgomery County Sportsmans Club near his hometown. An active baseball and basketball player on his school team, he decided to set those sports aside after falling in love with the sport of trapshooting!
Aaron has been involved in the trapshooting service industry for more than 13 years, working in sales, gunsmithing, and new product testing. He currently works for Elite Shotguns, who is also a factory authorized Kolar Arms distributor.
Aaron has earned numerous national and state level awards throughout his career. Since beginning as a sub junior, he has earned numerous satellite Grand/Grand American awards, ACUI collegiate trophies, 90+ state level awards, and countless local events at shoots across Kentucky. Aaron was also a scholarship recipient at Lindenwood University in 2002, earning a spot on their first national collegiate shotgun team.
