Local archers will have the opportunity to test their skill at Quality Cooperative’s annual Hunter’s Night Out.

The event, which will be held Sept. 22 from 4 to 7 p.m., will feature an archery tournament for adults and BB gun/ archery shoot for children.

“I’m doing this archery thing and doing things different to make it more enticing and make a good turn out,” Ryan Williams, Quality Cooperative manager, said.

The children’s BB gun and archery is free, but to enter into the adult archery tournament is $10 in advance and $20 the night of the tournament.

The winner will receive a deluxe combo Lockon stand with 20-foot climbing sticks as well as a Moultrie Game Spy M-80 camera.

There will also be door prizes to be raffled off that will include a management buck/doe hunt from Troy’s Hunt Club valued at $1,500 or an all day quail hunt at Agri B Plantation in Camilla, Ga.

Quality Cooperative will also be having a sale on items such as fertilizer, food plot seeds, deer attractants and tree stands.

“We’re going to have refreshments,” Ryan Williams, the manager, said.

“I’m trying to offer more things, because this is the first time I have done one personally.”
