This weekend’s Eastern Oregon Super Shoot saw 411 archers hone their skills on the slopes of the Anthony Lakes ski area.
“That’s about 120 more than we usually do,” said Bob Reedy, president of the Elkhorn Archers in Baker City, which organized the event along with the Grande Ronde Bowmen in La Grande.
Archers came from Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Washington and California for the 12th-annual Super Shoot at Anthony Lakes.
Investigators from the Oregon State Police said today that the driver of a pickup truck that crashed on Interstate 84 near Baker City Saturday night, leading to the death of one passenger, struck an elk, causing the driver to lose control.
Tanda Kay Pratt, 60, of Blackfoot, Idaho, died in the crash that happened about 10:38 p.m. Saturday near Milepost 294, about 10 miles north of Baker City.
The driver, Todd B. Pratt, also of Blackfoot, was injured, as were the two other passengers, Joe L. Pratt, 61, of Blackfoot, and Austin B. Parker 23, of Pocatello, Idaho.
