Shiloh Butts was born and raised in southern Oklahoma. Butts was involved in archery since he was four years old. He began competing in both traditional and compound classes at the age of 13 on the state level, slowly expanding out regionally and then nationally. After graduating high school, he stopped competing in the compound class and focused on competing in 3D tournaments in traditional archery, primarily in the longbow division.
Butts won multiple state titles in recurve, longbow, and self-bow in Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas as well as being crowned IBO World Champion in 2014 and 2017 in the Longbow Division and in 2015 and 2021 in the Self-bow division.
In the summer of 2022, Butts qualified in the top position of the longbow division to represent the United States Archery Team at the World Archery 3D Championships in Terni, Italy in September 2022. Fortunately, during the weeklong tournament, he was able shoot well and earn the Bronze Medal competing against the best longbow archers in the world. He hopes to make the USA Archery team again to represent our country at the next championships in 2024.
