Event: Women's Trap

Personal
Miranda Wilder began shooting when her father taught her to shoot a pistol at just 4 years old.  Due to the lack of a local international bunker, Wilder and her father teamed up with her grandfather to build an international bunker in her backyard--a literal "home range."  She likes to read, listen to country music and eat Italian food.  Wilder advises junior     shooters to keep their "head on the gun." She's currently attending Schreiner University pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering.  Her greatest athletic experience takes her back to 2008 when she became the only woman in the U.S. to shoot a 25-straight in a single shot final.  "That was the first event where I truly dedicated myself to a goal and that still sticks with me to this day. There is a euphoria that makes you go "Wow, this is really happening." Though none of it really sunk in until a few weeks later. 

Wilder made history at the 2013 World Clay Target Championships by becoming the first person, male or female, to win two Junior World Titles in the shotgun event of international bunker trap during their career.  Since the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) began junior shotgun events in 1989, there’s been just eight two-time World Champions, but Wilder becomes the first to do so in Trap.
