Randy Walk

Category B - Bowhunters who have shown Excellence in the Design and Manufacturing of Archery Equipment


For Randy Walk, bowhunting has always been a way of life. As a young boy his father Jay owned an archery shop and had a tremendous passion for archery and specifically bowhunting. "Still today I can smell the cedar arrows that my father would fletch for his customers," commented Randy. "I loved spending time at the archery shop with my parents and they tell me that I was quite a shot with a bow and arrow almost as soon as I could walk." From those days as a young boy just learning to walk, Randy hasn't put a bow down since. The very first year he was able to hunt with a bow, he bagged a mule deer buck in Southern Utah while on an annual family deer hunt. During his high school years at Grantsville High, located in a rural farming community in Northern Utah, he was already an accomplished big game hunter and had an incredible ability to shoot a bow and arrow. 

After graduating from high school in 1981. Randy enrolled in the electrical engineering program at the University of Utah. Randy's ability for engineering was as strong as his ability to shoot a bow, which made him the perfect fit for an engineering position at Hoyt USA. Randy's talents, passion, and desire to succeed propelled him up the company ladder quickly. In 1988, at the age of 25, he found himself leading the entire engineering efforts at Hoyt USA and today sits as the company President, a company that has become a leader in compound and recurve bow design and innovation. Randy is responsible for several compound bow patents all of which have had substantial impact on the compound bow today. 

Randy has harvested over 100 North American big game animals and 15 different species of African animals. Randy resides in Utah with his wife Diana and has three boys, Brandon, Remington and Preston all who share the passion of bowhunting their father has.
