]Another attack on hunting by the antis....hat tip CBH newsletter;
NO YOU CAN’T SHOOT AT 3-D ANIMAL TARGETS
Now the Animal Rights Groups don’t want Archers to shoot at 3-D Animal Targets. Yep you read that correctly.
There was a recent ruling at the El Dorado Archery
Range, by the Long Beach Parks and Recreation
Department, that disallows the placement of...and
shooting at... 3D animal targets in front of the butts on
This is a practice that has been enjoyed by
target archers and bowhunters for years without
problems. This ruling was based upon two women who
had observed an archery class being taught by Marcus
Bossett. They were aghast at seeing youth shooting at
3D Animal Targets and demanded that the park stop
this terrible practice.

called “Instinctive Archery” and Marcus has been using
his own personal 3D targets for his students to shoot at
so they know how to shoot and score all of the
tournaments held in California which includes the 3D
These two women managed to cause a
sweeping policy change that includes the entire archery
range and anyone who comes to enjoy it.
Followup; CBH is working to reverse this ruling
I will post the link and please send an email expressing you won't visit the long beach area because of this absurd ruling. The more voices heard, the better chance for a rule change. Thanks
