The snow has just gone off the field in front of our house, and there are signs of warm sunny days ahead!
Spring is also a time that many of the archers in the valley get their bows, arrows and targets out to practice for the upcoming Rock Shoot in Moses Lake. Here are a few pictures from this past Sunday afternoon
|They all shoot primitive bows, made with local wood.|
|This 4 year old has a unique draw, but he hits the target (sometimes!).|
|this 7-year old sends her arrow on its way to the target!|
They call this Rabbit Hunting. The target is rolled along the ground in front of the shooters, and it's a bit of a competition to see who can hit it. A fun, carnival-like challenge.
|Ariel target shooting is a fun way to get your exercise - walking around in the field looking for your arrows - but skills are honed, and practice pays off. And most importantly, family fun is had by all.|
