October 15th Archery Shoot and Wild Game Dinner Spectators and Participants book your reservations now for October 15th! The fastest growing outdoor sport today is archery shooting and Cloud 9 Ranch will be hosting a 6 Change archery shoot competition on October 15th. How it works: 6 Archery targets are placed in shooting position spaced at various distance from the shooter. The targets pop up into ready position in a random order allowing the shooter only seconds to load the arrow, lock in on the target and fire off the shot. Each shooter has the opportunity to hit 5 of the 6 targets. After the shooter completes his round, the scorer judges the points scored per shot.
