Archers take aim at 3D championship

Maybe the targets were a little closer, maybe there was less wind, maybe it was something else entirely.

Maybe the targets were a little closer, maybe there was less wind, maybe it was something else entirely.

Any which way, Yukon archers were racking up high points at the Yukon Outdoor 3D Archery Championship at the Biathlon Yukon range on Sunday.

The 11 archers who took part posted an average score of 193.6 at the fourth annual event hosted by the Yukon Aboriginal Sport Circle.

That’s up last year’s average score of 114.2.

For the second year in a row a youth shooter produced the top score at the championship in which competitors take aim at three-dimensional foam rubber targets in the shapes of animals – everything from a fish to a moose to a dinosaur.

Thirteen year old Levi Stoneman of Teslin led the field with a score of 312 and was the only one to crack the 300 mark. Last year Stoneman, who competed for Yukon at the 2014 North American Indigenous Games, came away with a 202.
