Archers took aim at lifelike targets in a three dimensional archery tournament at Grand Island's Community Fieldhouse...
The bow-men and women say 3D beats flat targets flat out.
Tournament competitor Travis Bieber: "Here you're actually shooting at animals. They have contours, there are different spots, different yardages. I like it, it's a lot of fun."
Out of the cold wind, archers can bring their thoughts to bear on sharpening their aim.
Community Fieldhouse coordinator Jeremy Bachmann: "...Just kind of focusing on a target, just like any kind of hunting, you've just got to focus on it, and hold your breath, and shoot."
Archery is open to every age, height, and weight -- to anyone who can aim an arrow. And of course, as competitor Nathan Brown's grandfather Doc Peterson knows well, would-be archers will need some equipment. Doc Peterson: "He had to have a compound bow, and of course the arrows, and for his birthday he got a target, a fox target, and that's what he's been practicing with."
