The 3rd Annual Bowhunting.com Get Together Archery and Fun Shoot is officially underway and I can, without an ounce of doubt, state that this is by far our biggest and best event ever. Well over 100 bowhunting enthusiasts from across the country showed up this morning in Garden Prairie, Illinois ready for a day of archery fun.
Cool, muggy weather made the mosquitoes prevalent, but attendees have enjoyed an 18 target 3D course, a pop-up shoot, sporting clays shoot and a long distance shooting competition. Despite the overcast skies, it’s already been an exciting day with many archers still competing on the 3D course. Others, of course, are enjoying a delicious lunch and relaxing a bit before taking part in the final competitions. Be sure to check the blogs regularly to see how the rest of the day pans out!
