Sharpen your abilities at archery clinic

PRICE — Archery can be enjoyed by just about anyone, whether you’re a new or an old hand at shooting sports.

If you’re interested in trying archery for the first time, or getting your shot groupings a little tighter, a free event is coming up that you won’t want to miss.

On June 16, the Division of Wildlife Resources will host a free Archery Clinic at the Gordon Creek Wildlife Management Area near Price. The clinic starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m.

“Archery is a sport that encompasses a variety of methods and styles: hunting, target shooting, competition, primitive methods, modern technology and so much more,” says Walt Maldonado, the DWR’s wildlife recreation program specialist in southeastern Utah. “We’ll provide hands-on instruction that will help you shoot better. An array of shooting opportunities will also be available to try.”

A variety of compound bows will be available for participants of all ages, but you’re also welcome to bring your own archery equipment. The clinic will include bullseye targets, 3-D wildlife targets, moving targets and a crossbow.

To participate, you must register for the event. Driving directions to the clinic’s location will be provided during the registration process.

Sportsman’s Corner of Bill’s Home Furnishings in Price is providing door prizes, which will be awarded at the end of the clinic.

If you have questions about the clinic, call the DWR’s Southeastern Region office at 435-613-3707.
