Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Second Annual Season Opener 3D Shoot. This was a very challenging shoot and everyone had a such great time!! A special thank you to Travis Bowman and his fantastic team of volunteers (primarily Louis Bacling, Melanie Lucia, Tammy Terra, Doug Samson and many more). The target sets were amazingly clever and closely mimicked the type of shot you might find yourself making while in the field going after the buck of a lifetime. We hope this shoot provided a better appreciation of what shots are high percentage, ethical shots for you from those that are better left untaken to prevent a wounded, unrecovered animal.
The archery divisions were very simple: Compound/Traditional, Male/Female, Hunter/Non-Hunter.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to Bruce Marshall from the Bow & Arrow Shop who generously donated some amazing prizes including Vortex binoculars, Horn Hunter Fanny Pack and a Rinehart elk target among many other fantastic prizes! Also, Devin O’Dea provided two dozen arrows from Victory Archery as raffle prizes to everyone who successfully shot the Victory Archery steel target.
