For anyone who has wondered what it is like to shoot a bow and arrow, there is a free family archery shoot at LaSal Mountain Outfitter’s shop from 9 a.m. to noon, this Saturday.
Bows, arrows and targets will be provided, free-of-charge, to anyone who wants to participate, said Brent Stettler, a regional conservation outreach manager for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
“If you or your children have ever wanted to shoot a bow and arrow, this is a great opportunity to do so without buying equipment or making special arrangements,” Stettler said.
Stettler said supervision, training in how to shoot a bow and arrow and all of the equipment you’ll need to participate will be provided.
“The event is free,” Stettler said. “Pre-registration is required so we know how many persons to expect.”
A similar clinic was held at the Old Spanish Trail Arena on Saturday, Jan. 5 earlier this year. The family shoot piggy-backed on top of an interstate professional archery competition sponsored by the LaSal Mountain Outfitters. The free family shoot attracted about a hundred persons, whose ages ranged from 2 ½ to 55 years old. Many shot several times during the two-hour period.
