Youngsters interested in the sport of archery are invited to attend a one-day archery event at the Bighorn Archery Range in Pueblo, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) and Johnson Sport and Ski will co-sponsor the event.

Activities include target practice, a fun shoot, a 3-D shoot and one-on-one instruction. Boys and girls of all ages are invited to attend, but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Instructors from the DOW and local archery experts will help youngsters learn the finer points of shooting a bow. The DOW will furnish the equipment.

"This event is a great opportunity for youngsters to

learn more about this rapidly growing type of outdoor recreation, and try their hand at using a bow," said Steve Lucero, an education coordinator with the DOW. "Archery is one of the world's oldest sports. It is safe and fun when done properly."

The Bighorn Archery Range is located just east of the DOW office at 600 Reservoir Road. The range features 10 shooting stations with covered platforms.
