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.

Phegley suffered a broken back and jaw near Sekiu earlier this month while riding a motorcycle on a bear hunting trip when he was struck by a vehicle during an apparent hit-and-run incident.

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.

Raffle tickets are $10 and available through Sept. 4.

Tickets are available at E-Z Pawn East, 2416 E. U.S. Highway 101 in Port Angeles or by phone with a debit or credit card at 360-452-7296.
