Shooting Biography:

John Krumrey started shooting at 8 years old, carrying a bb gun while hunting with his dad Karl.  From there it progressed to air rifle, bow, shot gun and rifle.  He was known as a great shot whether it was hunting ducks, deer, coyotes, rabbits, grouse, geese, pheasants etc.

John’s introduction to sporting clay’s was once with some friends but he didn’t think that it was very good for improving his hunting skills so he never went back.  Then his girlfriend Paula Benbow (now his wife) started shooting sporting clay’s after hunting grouse with him and wanting to improve her bird hunting skills.  About a year after she had started shooting clay’s, she finally talked him into going to a clay’s course.  She shot more clay’s than he did.  That is when he decided to get serious about shooting sporting clay’s.  He registered that month, July of 1999 and has been shooting ever since.  John is a natural and has the discipline to focus when needed.  His natural ability was enhanced by initial instruction from Allen Dunbar and various one time instruction from other great National shooters.  However, coaching from Pat Lieske really helped shape the shooter he has become.  His shooting record above reflects his great shooting ability.  He is honored to join a great group of people by his induction into the WSCA Hall of Fame.
