Participants will learn the different types of bows and arrows, places to practice, how to handle and load the bow safely, and get a great deal of hands-on practice shooting at field and 3D targets. ODFW and the Benton Bowman provide all necessary equipment and lunch. The class runs 8 a.m.–4 p.m. at the Benton Bowman Archery Club. Cost is $52.
Next on Sunday, June 28, come out to Springfield and the farm of The Bow Rack owner Wayne Endicott for a bowhunting class with ODFW, Oregon Bow Hunters and Endicott. The class will include archery practice on how to shoot a bow and improve your technique. It will also take participants from field to table and cover all aspects of bowhunting including: how to pack for a hunt, field dress an animal, and how to care for and cook your meat. It’s ideal for rifle hunters considering the switch to archery or any newcomer to bowhunting. Cost is $52 per adult and $12 per youth.
