3D ARCHERY: Arrows In The Air!
The 3D archery targets are back in season! Hopefully by the time you read this all nine of the new 3D targets have been positioned on the range, the stakes have been placed and the brush cleared. The 3D archery range or “woods walk” is open again.
If your bow has been sitting in storage since deer season closed, consider taking it out and walking the course at the club. If you just love watching arrows fly, you will have a hard time finding a better excuse for shooting than the 3D range. The course consists of 30 targets placed along the woods walk trail at a variety of distances and in life like poses, simulating hunting conditions. The trail starts just to the east of the archery building which is on the right side of the driveway as you enter the club. Most of the targets are common north American game, such as deer, bear, and turkeys, but several examples of exotic game exist, especially African animals like a lion, leopard, and a warthog.
The range is open seven days a week to club members and their guests. There is a self-pay slot in the door of the archery building where you can place your $4 per shooter to cover the cost of targets. (The cost for non-member guests is $8.) Score cards are available in a mailbox or if you prefer, shoot the course at your leisure and don’t worry about keeping score.
For more information call the archery activity director, Larry Murray at his work number, 269-659-6002 or home number 269-659-6002. If you would like to volunteer to maintain the course throughout the summer, give Larry and call and he can fill you in on workdays and projects.
