Close to 120 archery shooters descended upon the Lethbridge and District Exhibition this past weekend. The Southern Alberta Bowhunters Association hosted an event that showcased 3D archery. Brendon Degner, the president of the organization explained to us that archers shoot 3D foam animals.
“You’ll essentially shoot the 3D animals, as I said, with the scoring rings, and they’re scored per round and there’s a winner at the end. We also offer non competitive options at our shoots as well. So we just put them on more for fun, more kind of a hunter style event to get newer archers, young people involved. So it still is a competition. We did have winners and things like that.”
The Southern Alberta Bowhunters Association was formed in 1979. The group was created as a way to fight for bowhunters rights and a spot for likeminded individuals to get together.
