Candice Fowler grew up in a hunting and shooting family. The first time Candice tried shooting her father’s shotgun was at her grandparents’ property in Murrieta, California when she was twelve years old. The shot knocked her down to the ground, as she was all of 70 pounds, shooting her father’s big 12 gauge shotgun at a hand-thrown clay. It wasn’t until 1993 before she gave shooting a second chance, at the urging of her husband John. From that point on Candice and John shot clays whenever they could.

She began by pulling and scoring trap for a local monthly pot shoot at Mr. and Mrs. Riggs property, where her husband John and his friend shot games like Annie Oakleys, winks and buddy shoots. Candice became very good at helping the shooters who were off target get back on target, so much so that they told her she should give it a try. After some coaching from John and Mr. Riggs, Candice began shooting pot shoots with a Winchester Model 12. That lead to competing in ATA trap shoots as wells as skeet and 5-stand.

Candice and John practiced weekly at Inland Fish and Game and Redlands Trap and Skeet, where they met a shooter named Jessie Bird who invited them to shoot a new game called sporting clays. Quickly, trap and skeet fell by the wayside as sporting clays became their new passion. Shooting was a family affair for the Fowlers. All of their children shoot, too. In fact, Candice continued shooting even while pregnant with their youngest son, Thomas. After his birth, Candice continued to compete, but not as often until three years ago after receiving her AA degree in Liberal Arts with honors. Her sights then turned back to competing regularly again in sporting clays. Since her shooting career began in trap shooting, Candice had never shot low gun until 2014 when she decided to learn Fitasc. It is now one of her favorite events to shoot.

Presently, she has incorporated her educational background into her passion for shooting as a shooting instructor. Candice and John instruct clay shooting throughout Southern California.
