A golden opportunity to find out is waiting for you Jan 22. That's the day the Division of Wildlife Resources and the Buckhorn Archery Club will host a free archery shoot in the Emery County Recreation Center in Castle Dale.
The recreation center is on the east side of the Emery County Fairgrounds, 75 E. 400 S. in Castle Dale.
The shoot runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR, says adults, youth and children are invited to attend the event and give archery a try.
"Archery is one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States," Stettler says. "It's a sport that offers year-round recreation at very little cost."
The Jan. 22 event is a chance to try the hobby without having to spend money to shoot or buy any equipment. "Bows, arrows, targets and all of the accessories will be provided," Stettler says. "Club members and DWR personnel will be on-hand to offer help and supervision."
