First Annual Stephen Morgan Memorial 3D Archery Shoot has large turnout

A few years ago, Stephen Morgan and Anthony Denton started working on the Jackson Parish Bowhunters Archery Range which is located at the Jackon Parish Recreation Department Complex on Hwy 4, east of Jonesboro. Sadly, last year Stephen passed away. He was a dedicated archer and passed on his knowledge to many. His efforts, which laid the foundation for the range that is enjoyed today, are still felt and appreciated today. In honor of Stephen, his wife Tammy and their family, this past Saturday the first annual Stephen Morgan Memorial Shoot was held that saw a total of fifty-seven shooters that participated in 13 different classes.

Special thanks are given to the following sponsors who helped make the shoot a tremendous success.

4-T Exterior Cleaning, Hoot & Holler, Superior Outdoors, Nichols, Weston Wolf Stop, J&L Works, DJG Enterprise, Gordan Smith, Spotted Dog, Pardue Builders, Dirt Road, Dirt Road Apparel
