Peshtigo River Bowhunters League Remains Close
Issue Date: July 26, 2018
The Peshtigo River Bowhunters have completed 9 of 10 weeks for Summer League Shooting. There are 30 shooters on 6 teams in Summer League. Currently two teams are vying for 1st place. Team #3 consisting of Craig Philipps, Paul Seidl, Dale Seefeldt, Bryce Anderson and Cole Sherman have 13 team points while Team #2 consisting of Derick Johnson, Dan Coakley, Tom Sherman, Haley Highlen and Zach Sherman have 12 team points. This week will determine the team winner.
Each week team members shoot at 3-D targets set up on the range at varying distances. The distances range from 10 yards to a little over 30 yards. Each person shoots at 30 different 3-D targets. The scoring is 10-8-5 & 0 for a complete miss and a perfect score is 300. Shooting is from the ground and also from several elevated stands which give a good opportunity for many different types of shots. Teams were formed after the first week of shooting. Teams shoot against a different team each week. The top 4 shooters with handicap are used for the team score. When a team wins, it receives 2 points, if the teams tie, then each team receives 1 point.
Current top Shooters are: Men-Paul Seidl-298 (Avg. score), Tom Sherman-298; Women-Melissa Sherman-289 (Avg. score), Molly Bonjean-280; and Youth-Zach Sherman-276 (Avg. score), Cole Sherman-272.
