This poor boar never stood a chance.

Quesnel Indoor 3D shoot draws more than 100 competitors

Local archers nabbed 28 medals at the weekend competition

More than 100 archers from as far away as Williams Lake, Prince George, Smithers, Terrace and Vanderhoof made the trip to Quesnel to compete in the Quesnel River Archers’ Annual Indoor 3D shoot last weekend (Feb. 23-24).

The spacious Gamache barn was filled with foam animals of all types. Boars, moose, bears, raccoon and deer were placed at various distances to test the eyes and co-ordination of the various bow pros on hand.

Al Campsall, a 2018 World Champion in field archery from Williams Lake, says the shoot was excellent.

“They do a really great job,” he says. “They mix up the targets, and it’s a lot of fun.”

Quesnel archers performed fantastically, taking away 28 medals at the hometown shoot.
