The Pennsylvania Bowhunters Festival – the biggest and oldest annual archery event in the Keystone State – has announced that targets capable of handling crossbow shots will be available for the first time at most shooting venues at the 2013 event, scheduled for Sept. 13-15 at the Sullivan County Fairgrounds in Forksville.

Every year since 1957, with the exception of the 2011 devastating floods, in mid-September, thousands of Bowhunters journey to the small town of Forksville, in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, for the Pennsylvania Bowhunters Festival, the oldest gathering of Bowhunters in the world. The three-day event offers a wide variety of educational and shooting activities and events designed to prepare Bowhunters for the upcoming archery season and entertain them at the same time.

The Festival features the famous “Forksville Running Deer” target, mechanical bear and turkey targets, pop-up and moving small game targets, a timed clay pigeon shoot, stationary targets set at variable distances, and three game trails designed to simulate bow hunting in a northern hardwood forest.

All targets are McKenzie style 3-D targets. There are vendors and manufacturers, clinics and seminars, entertainment, and great food.
