Youngsters interested in the sport of archery are invited to attend a one-day archery event at the Bighorn Archery Range in Pueblo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 13. 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 instruction. Boys and girls age 7�16 are invited to attend, but must be accompanied by a parent.

Instructors from the CDOW 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 CDOW. "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. For more information, call (719) 542-6012.
