CALDWELL, Idaho -- Elk, deer, mountain goats and even cobras invaded the Canyon County Fairgrounds Saturday for the Northwest Bowhunter Classic.

The animal-shaped targets help determine the best shooters from around the area in a two-day tournament.

Archers ranged from championship shooters to people who were just picking up their first bow.

Thirteen-year-old Ludivina Lopez just started shooting six months ago, following in her dad's footsteps.

"It's more of like a community kind of thing," she said. "When you have a lot of people around you, they just want to support you and help you. And if you get a wrong shot, they're very supportive about it. They won't be like 'Oh, too bad.' It's just kind of like a really nice thing."

The Northwest Bowhunter Classic is put on each year by the Nampa Bow Chiefs.

The tournament continues tomorrow at 9 a.m. at the Canyon County Fairgrounds. You can find out more information about the shoot and local archery clubs like the Nampa Bow Chiefs by clicking here.
