A golden opportunity to find out is waiting for you on July 12.
On July 12, the Division of Wildlife Resources and La Sal Mountain Outfitters will host a free family archery shoot. The shoot will be held at the La Sal Mountain Outfitter's shop and indoor archery range. The shop and range are at 3031 South U.S. Highway 191, just south of Moab.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., families and individuals can 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," says Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR, "this is a great opportunity to do so without having to buy equipment or make special arrangements."
Stettler says training in how to shoot a bow and arrow, and all of the equipment you'll need to participate, will be provided, free of charge
Even though the event is free, you must pre-register. To pre-register, or for more information, contact Stettler at 435-613-3707 or
