Training: 3-D ARCHERY ADVENTURE CHALLENGE @ Koch Pavilion in Tererro, New Mexico
May 22 all-day

New Mexico Administrative Services Division employees will participate in a 3-D Archery Adventure Shoot training. Participants will walk a pre-determined course in small groups. Each archer gets one to three shots at a three-dimensional target shaped like an animal. The targets on the animals cover the vital areas where a hunter would normally aim. This course challenge archers to adapt their shooting to account for variable conditions, distances, and angles. Participants will learn how to score a target and track their individual score.

Closed to the public
