A new shooting range in Carrabelle is getting some use.

On Saturday, April 12, 30 archery enthusiasts turned out for a 3-D bow shoot. The archers sported both compound and traditional bows and practiced in an area adjacent to the river to prepare for hunting season.

The practices range is a project of the Intercessors for the King and Christian Bow Hunters from the Carrabelle Christian Center .

The bowhunters have worked for the last month, mowing grass and clearing two areas on property at the end of 13 th Street West . On Saturday, a clearing just off the street was furnished with standard bow targets. About a qurter mile down a sand road was set up with practice deer targets tucked away in greenery to simulate shooting in the field.

Organizer Shawn Oxendine was pleased with the turn-out but said he wished more Franklin County residents would participate.

“If we could get Franklin County people as involved as Tallahassee , we’d have a crowd,” he said.Christine Oxendine said she believed about ten people from Leon County attended the shoot.
