Panther Creek Bowhunters will be holding our last 3D & Field Shoot of the season September 11th. We will also have a couple novelty shoots with prizes for the winners. Prizes include gift cards, indoor range time certificates, hats, hunting DVD's and other archery related gear. The 3D course is set to challenge the foam hunters this month including our moving target "Rudolph the Demon Deer". Our field course is challenging as always. We'd love to see a good group of shooters again this month!

We will also be holding a membership drive at this shoot. Sign up as a member now and your club fees will take care of you through March 2013. This includes use of the club through the rest of this season along with access to our new broadhead range to help get ready for the upcoming archery deer season. We will also have a club indoor league this winter. The course is located on the south end of Lake Springfield in Central Illinois.

We'd certainly love to have you as a member. Our club will also have a table at Scheels for their Bowhunters Kickoff Classic this Saturday (1:00 - 6:00). Stop by and say hello if you are around or just come out to the shoot on Sunday. It would be a pleasure meeting you!

We have a good group of prizes coming in for our novelty shoots this weekend. We'll be doing a long shot and I believe a Life Saver shot as well. Prizes so far include gift cards from Scheels, Pro-Pod, OMP Arrow puller, HHA hats, one month range pass from Gander Mountain, various hunting DVD's (from PSE and Team Radical Outdoors) and Mike Mitten promised use a book to give away as well. Hopefully well have a few more things to add to the list before this weekend! It should be a great shoot!

Are you going to offer a money class at this shoot? I have a few local Pro's that would come and shoot if you had one.

We have been discussing having a money class and your post just helped make the decision. Our normal shoot fee is $15. The money class fee will be $30. The extra $15 collected will go into the "money pot" and well pay 50% to 1st place, 30% to 2nd place and 20% to third. Money class shooters will shoot from the yellow stake which is typically going to be longer than normal or tougher than normal (possibly both). We haven't had a money shoot in a while so hopefully we'll have some good participation. Feel free to bring all of your friends!

Just a reminder that Panther Creek Bowhunters club will have members out at the "Bowhunters Kickoff Classic" at Scheels in Springfield IL tomorrow from noon til 6:00. Gene Wensel, Brye Lambley and Mike Mitten will be holding seminars throughout the day on various bowhunting subjects. Come out and meet some legends of our sport and stop by our table to say hello. We'll have flyers for our shoot this Sunday and also membership forms for anyone who is interested in joining the club. Anyone who becomes a member now will be covering their dues thru March of 2013. We have a new broadhead range at the club to help get you ready for deer season and will be having a club indoor league this winter as well. We'd love to meet some Central Illinois AT'ers! If you can't make it to Scheels tomrrow then we hope to see you Sunday!

Thank you to everyone who came out to shoot yesterday! From what I heard everyone loved the course this month! That yellow stake definately challenged some people. Our shoot numbers were way up this year so another thank you to everyone who came out over the course of the season as well. Keep an eye out for information on our Indoor Winter League. We will allow members and non members to participate this year so were hoping for a good crew. Also, keep an eye out for a special shoot next year for our 60th anniversary!

The scores from yesterdays shoot have been posted to our website. www.PantherCreekBowhunters.com

Where will you be having the indoor league? Had a good time yesterday at the shoot. Tim out did himself setting the yellow stakes. Nothing like having to shoot over, under, around, and thru a bunch of stuff to hit the target. Thanks Tim. :)
