The West Kootenay Archers hit their target, attracting almost 50 shooters to its winter shoot at the Trail Wildlife Association’s Casino range on Saturday. Photos: Organizers Stacy Conacher and Matt Audia teamed up with Shane Voigt and Kris Koshey to score high on the 3-D moose, while four-year-old Rylan Rieberger tracks down his prey, and Kyle Bartsoff digs into a bowl of chili courtesy of the Colander. Conacher and Audia also introduced some challenging shots, like threading an arrow through a hole in the snowbank. Ryan Benner takes dead aim at one of 15 3-D targets as he and his family joined the winter shoot. Local businesses also helped make the event a big success by donating raffle prizes.
