A golden opportunity to find out is waiting for you on March 8. That's the day the Division of Wildlife Resources and LaSal Mountain Outfitters will host a free family archery shoot at the LaSal Mountain Outfitter's shop and indoor archery range, which is located at 3031 South Hwy 191 just south of Moab.
From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., families and individuals can come and try out the sport of archery. Bows, arrows and targets will be provided, free-of-charge, to anyone who wants to participate.
"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," says Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR.
Stettler says 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 says. "Pre-registration is recommended, so we know how many persons to expect." For more information or to pre-register, call Stettler at 435-613-3707 or send an email to:
