-- Youngsters interested in the sports of archery and shotgun shooting are invited to attend a free one-day event at the Ramah State Wildlife Area Archery Range, Sept. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Activities include a shotgun target and fun shoot, a laser gun computerized shooting station, a 3-D archery shoot, and instruction.
"This is a great opportunity for youngsters to learn about shooting sports and try their hand at using a bow and learning about firearms safety," said Steve Lucero, an education coordinator with the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
Instructors from the DOW and trained volunteers will help youngsters learn the finer points of shooting shotguns and bows. The Department of Wildlife will furnish the equipment.
The Ramah Archery Range is located four miles west of the town of Ramah at the Ramah State Wildlife Area along U.S. Hwy 24 in northeastern El Paso County.
All ages are welcome. Boys and girls under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Activities will run continuously throughout the event. For more information, call (719) 227-5207.
