GERING — The 5th Annual Wildcat Hills 3-D Shootout had 51 archers attend the two-day event held in the Wildcat Hills south of Gering on June 8-9.

Saturday’s weather made it a challenge with wind and a shower now and then. Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day and archers had a lot of fun shooting the two rounds of 25 3-D targets scattered through the hills and timber.

Archers that wanted to have a chance to win cash had to shoot both days.

The archers shoot in classes that included Bow Hunter Free Style (BHFS, use of sights and releases), Women Bow Hunter Free Style (WBHFS, use of sights and releases), Traditional (wooden bows, no releases, no sights), Youth (ages 13 to 17), and Cubs (ages 12 and under).

A total of 21 archers shot in the BHFS class with five shooting two days to qualify for the cash. Winners in the BHFS were 1st place Gary Dykman of Chappell, 2nd place Tanner Kaufman of Gering and 3rd place Logan Dietrich of Alliance.

Six women came out to shoot at this year’s event. Only two women shot two days and there needed to be three archers shoot both days to have a pay out. The two women that shot both days in WBHFS were 1st place Jamie Sabatini of Chappell and Jennifer Svoboda of Mitchell.

In the Traditional class two archers shot this year. One archer shot both days of the competition and that was Tim Ray of Sidney.

The Youth class had 11 archers shoot with five shooting both days. Winners in this class won plaques. 1st place Becca Svoboda of Mitchell, 2nd place Jessica Svoboda of Mitchell and 3rd place Michael Kurtz of Mitchell.

There were 11 Cub archers at this year’s event. All the Cubs received medals.

At this year’s event a Youth Lifetime Hunting Permit was drawn for. All youth age 15 and under that shot at this year’s event were put in the drawing. The winner of the Lifetime Hunting Permit was a young man from Hay Springs, Neb., 5-year-old Tanner Tobiasson.

Also at this years event the BHFS and WBHFS winners were offered an opportunity to hunt Antelope. Arrangements have been made for the two of them to hunt Antelope on private land. Both winners are looking forward to the hunt.

Next year’s 6th Annual Wildcat Hills 3-D Shootout will be on June 7-8, 2014.
