AUSTIN - Kids ages six to 15 are invited to attend the Austin Bow Hunting & Archery Clinic sponsored by the American Deer & Wildlife Alliance and the Texas Deer Association.

The event will be held on Aug. 9, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., at Archery Country, Austin's oldest archery store. All equipment will be provided.

"We are so excited to host this event for kids, as it ties into our mission to promote safe hunting, education, and getting kids outdoors," say Annie Jones, director of operations for ADWA. "One of the primary goals of the TDA is to increase hunting opportunities in the state and helping to expose kids to the archery and bow hunting is a big step in that process."

In addition to learning to shot the bow, the event will feature raffles and gifts.

Those interested in signing up for the event can call (877) 528-7100. The cost to register is $5 and space is limited.
