WEEKEND: Elk hunting, archery clinics part of Port Townsend Community Read program

PORT TOWNSEND — Elk hunting and archery will be the topics of two free seminars presented this weekend as part of the monthlong 2012 Port Townsend Community Read program.

Archer, backpacker and hunter Jameson Hawn will present an elk-hunting seminar in the Library Learning Center next to the Port Townsend Library, 1220 Lawrence St., at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

A free archery clinic and demonstration will be conducted at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Horse Arena from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday.

Community Read events are based on the award-winning book Winterkill by Craig Lesley and are intended to bring authors, artists and outdoor enthusiasts together to breathe life into the book’s events.

Hawn will focus on archery gear, methods for finding elk throughout the state and backpacking essentials as well as demonstrating how hunters can get within range for the shot of a lifetime.

Sunday’s archery clinic will be led by several nationally ranked archers and members of the Wapiti Bowmen club from Port Angeles.

The clinic is open to the public, but participants must first sign a waiver.

Attendees will have the chance to learn basic skills associated with archery and see world-class archers in action.

“Barrels and Bows,” a barrel-racing and archery exhibition with Hawn and racing champion Dayna Windle planned this Sunday at the fairgrounds, has been canceled because of wet weather.

For more information, phone the Port Townsend Public Library at 360-385-3181.
