Beginning and experienced shooters are invited

Logan, UT — Have you ever wondered what it would be like to shoot a bow and arrow? How about a firearm, maybe even a muzzleloader?

And would you like to watch a group of expert shooters—dressed like cowboys from the Old West—demonstrate their shooting skills while moving through a course that includes stationary and pop-up targets?

If so, drop by the Cache Valley Public Shooting Range on May 13 or May 14. With the exception of the facility’s shotgun range, all of its shooting ranges will be open for free that day. And if you want to shoot on the shotgun range, you can for a reduced price.

If you don’t have any equipment or don’t know much about shooting, no problem. Free equipment and instruction will be provided that day.

The Cache Valley Public Shooting Range is at 2851 W. 200 N. in Logan. Free shooting will be offered from 3–8 p.m. on May 13 and from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. on May 14.

JaLynn Eggett, Cache Valley Public Shooting Range manager for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says beginning and advanced shooters are welcome.

“Equipment and instruction will be available for those who would like to try archery, muzzleloaders, shotguns, .22 rifles and handguns for the first time,” Eggett says. “Plan on joining us for a fun day at the shooting range.”

For more information, call the range at 435-753-4600.

Watch professional shooters in action

The Cowboy Action Shooters and the Practical Pistol Shooters—two professional shooting groups that conduct meets at the range—will be at the range on May 13 and May 14.

Both groups are skilled shooters that shoot at targets as the shooters move through a predetermined course. The Cowboy Action Shooters shoot pistols similar to those used by cowboys of the Old West. The Practical Pistol Shooters use modern pistols.

After the two groups of shooters are done, you can go through the course yourself using .22 pistols provided by the range.

Shoot some of the newest firearms

If you’re an experienced shooter, you’re also invited to come to the range and shoot for free. In addition to shooting your own firearm, you can also try some of the most current firearms available on the market today.

Representatives from various gun manufacturers will be on hand May 13 and May 14. For a small fee to cover the cost of the ammunition, you can shoot some of their latest offerings.
