Posted: Updated:

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Sunday, the Pro-Am Archery Tournament wrapped up at the Ouachita Parish Rifle Range.

The Archery Shooters Association hosted the tournament that brought in more than 1,200 competitors from across the nation.

Men, women, and even youngsters got the chance to show off their skills.

This tournament is a 3D competition meaning competitors are aiming at life-like targets.

"It's more of a hunting type of set up and it's a competition really designed to help you build up your hunting skills, shooting skills and really fine tune your archery game," Mike Tyrell said.

This is the tournament's 6th year in West Monroe and the director says he hopes to keep it coming back.
