Outdoors: Archers take aim at 3D shoot Saturday

-A A +A

There was a multitude of game animals near the Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club Saturday, everything from porcupines to mountain lions, although none of them were cause for concern.
The LASC and the Los Alamos Youth Shooting Sports Program held an exhibition 3D archery shoot Saturday in Rendija Canyon. About 30 game animals made out of foam were placed in various spots around a trail near the LASC clubhouse for archers to take aim at.
Jeff Fredenburg, the section chair for archery at LASC, helped organize the event as a fundraiser for the youth shooting program, which he also oversees.
In all, more than 30 archers from around the area took part in the exhibition.
Archers were given scorecards to keep track of their progress to see how close they could get to finding their mark.
Fredenburg said many of the hunters taking part Saturday were using the event as a warm-up for other 3D archery competitions coming up soon, including a competitive event the LASC is planning Aug. 6.
Several members of the youth shooting sports program were on hand to try their luck with their bows as well.
Bow hunting can be quite a bit more complicated than rifle hunting for several reasons, not the least of which is that bow hunters usually need to get considerably closer to their prey than their rifle counterparts.
