From the Colorado Division of Wildlife
-- Colorado is planning a free youth shooting sports clinic July 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in cooperation with Cripple Creek Victor Gold Mining Company.
Youngsters interested in archery and shotgun shooting are invited to attend this one day free event. Pre-registration is not necessary.
Activities include a shotgun target fun shoot, a 3-D archery shoot and instruction for both. The DOW will also provide an electronic laser-gun hunting simulation that teaches youngsters about shot placement by generating actual hunting scenarios on a big-screen.
Boys and girls ages 7 to16 are invited to attend, but must be accompanied by a parent. Instructors from the DOW and local archery experts will help youngsters learn the finer points of shooting shotguns and bows. The DOW will furnish the equipment.
For more information, call DOW District Wildlife Manager Tonya Sharp at (719) 227-5281.
