The Cherokee Bowhunters will play host to the "Deerman's T.H.E. Missouri State Championship Archery Shoot" on Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3. The championship shoot will be at the local club's archery range, located southeast of Neosho on the Fort Crowder Conservation Area.
The local range is one of the best in the state and draws many events. The range may be reached by going east on D Highway and then left on Parrot. Watch for signs.
Entries in the shoot are open to all archers. Shooters may compete either day or, if they wish, they may shoot both days.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. each morning and the shotgun start will be at 10 a.m. Entry fees for adults is $30, and youth (17 and under) is $15. Belt buckles will be awarded to first, second and third places in all classes.
Two 15-target courses will be set at hunting scenes.
A bar-be-que meal will be served at the concession stand. The meal will be cooked and served by Josh Wagner of  "His Table Ministries." Proceeds from the concession are used to feed the homeless and help veterans.
The public is invited to come out and eat some good bar-be-que to support those in need. Spectators are also invited to watch the archery competition.
