With help from Department of Natural Resources Interpretive Naturalists Dana Reckelhoff and Whitney Buechler, 10 students at Birdseye Park learned archery basics Thursday afternoon. The Birdseye Branch Library offered the program for the first time, sponsored by Zehr’s Automotive Repair. Using both of his hands, Isaac Kern of Fulda, 10, determined his dominate eye before shooting with a bow and arrow.

 

John DeWitte of Kyana, 10, grabbed an arrow before taking aim at one of the targets.

 

Madelynn Pund of St. Anthony, 8, took aim with her bow and arrow before shooting at a target.

 

Felecia Eckert of Birdseye, 9, prepared to load her bow before taking aim at one of the targets. This was Felecia's first time shooting with a bow and arrow. "I thought it was going to be hard pulling the string back," Felecia said. "But it was easy."

 

Reckelhoff demonstrated the correct way to hold the end of an arrow Thursday afternoon.
