Bob Gattorna currently resides in Enfield, Connecticut. He became interested in archery at the age of nine when he was given a fiberglass recurve as a birthday gift and the interest blossomed from there. In high school, Bob took his hunter education class and started out small game hunting. He enjoyed it so much that he began deer hunting with a shotgun, eventually buying his first compound bow, which provided him the opportunity to be in the woods even more. Gattorna is a certified Archery Technician (helping at shops and shows) and current Pro Staff for PSE Archery and Mossy Oak. He is the Vice President of the Northeast Championship Series (NECS) which was organized in 2013 by a group of archers throughout the Northeast to promote archery and specifically competitive 3-D archery.
