Archers take aim

Despite weather forecasts predicting the opposite, it was sunny blue skies for local archers at the annual Rosswood 3D archery shoot.

Despite weather forecasts predicting the opposite, it was sunny blue skies for local archers at the annual Rosswood 3D archery shoot.

More than 101 archers took part in the May 7-8 shoot, hosted by the Terrace Whiskey Jack Archers.

Archers made three rounds each of the course, shooting at 35 different animal-shaped targets on the 1.5 km course.

Rita Wacholtz said shooting at the 3D targets is really cool.

“They try and set up the shots so they are realistic to what a hunting shot would be,” Wacholtz said. “It allows to you practice for your actual hunting.”

Wacholtz adds in regards to terrain and the difficulty of shots she feels the Terrace course is one of the more challenging in the area.

Contestants also enjoyed a pancake breakfast as well as a pig roast, with steaks and a salad buffet served later in the day.

Most of the 3D targets are owned by the club, although some are borrowed from other clubs.

“We try to work with other clubs as much as we can,” Wacholtz said.

First place finishes in the mens categories were Alan Correia in the men’s longbow, Daryl Schultz in the men’s unlimited, Roger Briton in the men’s recurve and Jaco Fourie in the men’s bow hunter sighted categories.

For the ladies, it was Tiffany Hutchings in the longbow, Brenda Armstrong in the unlimited and Wacholtz in the recurve events.

In the juniors, Brandon Armstrong was first in the unlimited categories.

First place finishers for the peewee events were Brome Hanson in the longbow, Craig Durando in the recurve, and Logan Clunas in the compound events.

For the cubs, it was Daely Lytle in the longbow, Carter Durando in the recurve, Zak Larson in the unlimited and Tiann Fourie in the bowhunter sighted categories.
