Casper’s Lost Archery Club is hosting the second leg of its 3-D Triple Crown

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) – Archers from around Casper gathered at the central Wyoming fairgrounds for the 3-D Triple Crown event hosted by the Lost Arrow Archer’s Club.

This was just one of the events the club hosts throughout the year and club president Jordan Besler talks about the different events they host.

He said: “We hold indoor competitions throughout the winter. So this is our 3-D Triple Crown, so these are the 3-D foam animals you see behind me. We do this every month in February, March and April. We also run things from January, February, even November for Vegas style paper targets at 20 yards. Then we also have a summer series in May and June.”

Although these events mostly have people shooting targets, they change each one up a bit to give a different feel.

These events, including the 3-D Triple Crown, feature targets that resemble animals, from rabbits to rabbits to larger animals such as chickens.

Besler says of where they get these targets: “We order these things in bulk… When these targets come in, they tear up really well after being shot, and luckily they’re small sheets in the middle. have and we can only exchange attachments and not have to buy whole animals. People who come here really enjoy this type of event because it simulates bow hunting. “

The Lost Arrow Archer Club has a range that they maintain at Mount Casper, and these shoots provide a way to raise money to maintain the range.

Besler said, “When we do these shoots, our club is committed to a few key things. First, to promote and promote the sport of archery. Second, we do all the maintenance at Mount Casper. So when we do this shoots, this is a form of funding so we can maintain the Mt. Casper Archery Range.

Besler was recently elected president of the club, and he wants to continue what the previous president helped establish.

“Lost Arrow has been around since the 70’s. I’ve been club president since this fall, I’ve just been elected. Our previous president, Neil Rubush, did an amazing job, he’s responsible for a lot of the amazing things we’re doing now. So just trying to keep it going and get more people into the club.”

Originally from Florida, Jordan Besler moved to Wyoming, and he immediately felt how supportive the community was.

“The people here are amazing. If you need anything, most people in this building now will give you the coat on their back, that’s what makes this club special,” Besler said.

Whether archers who have been doing it their entire lives or people newer to the sport, club president Besler also welcomes anyone who wants to come down and give it a shot.

This club will have your back, as Besler said: “If you’ve never picked up a bow before and you come down to one of our ranges, someone will help you, maybe twenty.”

Anyone of any age can learn to shoot, and one young shooter talks about how he got into the sport.

Archer Raleigh talks about his experience and says: “It can be difficult. It’s definitely one of those sports where it can make you so angry because it can take an hour or two to get a pin and it can be just be… It’s not that it makes you angry, but when you get it inside, it can be incredibly fun and exciting.”

The Lost Archery Club will be holding another event on March 19th at the fairgrounds at 8:00am.
