SPORTS BRIEFS: Archery raffle to benefit Caylen Phegley; state parks free day planned

PORT ANGELES — A compound bow raffle to raise funds for medical expenses for Olympic Peninsula fishing and hunting guide Caylen Phegley is underway.

The prize is a new 2019 Mathews Vertix compound bow with draw weight of 65 to 75 pounds and draw lengths of 26 to 30.5 inches. It includes a Spot Hogg Fast Eddie double pin sight, dove tail mount, Mathews quiver, a Quality Archery Designs rest and a lifetime warranty.
