MERCER, Wis. - Weekend activity varies from one household to the next, ranging from family brunches to gardening to a number of chores, errands and other options.

For members of the Northwoods Traditional Archers, it's a great time to practice their skill, as they did on Saturday morning at the Northwoods Wildlife and Wetlands Club Range in Mercer.

According to David Steinhorst, who heads the range's archery committee, the total group consists of 15 members, including a few women and youth. However, he said each outing typically has about six members.
