Schneider takes Moose on Loose

Turnout was light as the Kettle Wildlife Association hosted a two-day 3D archery shoot last weekend.

Two-year old Cianna Linquist proudly holds her archery equipment as she poses with her mother Rebecca at the Kettle Wildlife Association (KWA) Clubhouse on Sunday.

Rebecca and Wilf Lindquist organized a two-day 3D Archery Shoot on the Kettle Wildlife Association’s property over the weekend.

Wilf reported the turnout was light this year. He attributes it to the low number of members in the local archery club this year and to conflicting dates with other archery events in the Southern Interior the same weekend.

The local club needs someone who is retired or semi-retired who has the time to take on the organization of archery for the KWA, he said. “Someone to teach, coach and run the club.”

Anyone interested is invited to contact either Lindquist at 250- 446-2646 or KWA president Geoff Fern at 250-446-2562.

Linquist reported that Bryan Schneider from Grand Forks won the Moose on the Loose 100-yard shot on Saturday night. He said 100 yards is a long shot for a compound bow and Schneider’s arrow came within 11.43 centimetres of the centre of the playing card target that was placed on the 3D moose target.
