THE Dubbo & District Field Archers is open to all ages and lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence. On Sun­day, Novem­ber 25, mem­bers en­joyed the beau­ti­ful weather for the fort­nightly shoot.

The club wel­comes fam­i­lies to try a dif­fer­ent sport and has equip­ment avail­able for those who want to have a go.

The Field Archers op­er­ate in a bush set­ting range only 15 min­utes from Dubbo on Hen­nessy Road.

At the bi-weekly shoot, archers en­joy 20 tar­get rounds with a sausage siz­zle lunch in the mid­dle. Meat is pro­vided by Butch­ers On Mac­quarie to raise money for the club.

Field Archers is one of three archery clubs in Dubbo. 3D Archery meets ev­ery month, cur­rently at the paint­ball range, and In­door Archery meets each Wed­nes­day evening in the Cen­te­nary Pavil­ion at Dubbo Show­ground.

This was the Dubbo & District Field Archers’ last shoot for the year and Mel went along to test his shoot­ing skills. He didn’t hit a tar­get but got plenty of pho­tos of those skilled bow hunters who did!

Archery re­sumes in the city in early Fe­bru­ary and Shoot Cal­en­dars will be pub­lished in late Jan­uary.

If you would like any in­for­ma­tion please text or call the club Pres­i­dent John Car­pen­ter on 0427 574 243.
