DFG to hold archery clinic for teens, youth

The California Department of Fish and Game will host a fall archery clinic for young people who want to learn an outdoor skill and enjoy spending time outdoors.

Shooting Pumpkins: Youth Archery Clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the El Dorado Hills Bowmen Archery Club. The class will include instruction in basic archery form, safety and equipment choices, as well as hands-on shooting practice on a professional archery range. There will be plenty of bulls-eye targets to shoot at and in keeping with the harvest spirit, pumpkin targets will also be used.

“Archery is a sport that inherently motivates young people,” said Lesa Johnston, DFG National Archery in the Schools program coordinator. “Any child can do this; they only need an opportunity to explore the skill.”

The range is located at 3321 El Dorado Hills Blvd. in El Dorado Hills, just off of Highway 50. The $15 clinic fee includes brunch, snacks, equipment, range use and instruction. Youth must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents/guardians are included in the brunch at no additional cost. Class size is limited to 45 and pre-registration is required. Participants may register online at www.dfg.ca.gov/yo.

The event is co-sponsored by the California Bowmen Hunters/ State Archery Association.

For information regarding Youth and Families in the Outdoors events contact Lesa Johnston at (916) 322-8933 or ljohnsto@dfg.ca.gov.
