Free hunting and fishing instruction offered Sept. 27
in Salt Lake City
SALT LAKE CITY — Families can learn archery, trap shooting, rifle shooting, upland game hunting, turkey hunting, waterfowl hunting and even some basic fishing skills by attending a free Step Outside event offered by the Division of Wildlife Resources.
The event will be held Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., at the Lee Kay Center for Hunter Education, 6000 W. 2100 S. in Salt Lake City. To participate, people must pre-register by calling RaLynne Takeda at (801) 538-4753.
"The Division of Wildlife Resources invites families to share the outdoors, have fun and learn new skills by 'stepping outside' and attending the event," said Takeda, assistant hunter education coordinator for the DWR. "Friendly, patient and competent instructors will be available to lead participants through the basics. Even if you've never held a bow or a fishing rod, you'll feel like a pro before the day is over."
The event is free and all of the needed equipment will be provided. Lunch will be available on site for a fee. Pre-registration is required and children must be at least 6-years-old to participate.
The DWR, Browning, the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Utah Bowman's Association are sponsoring the event.
To register or for more information, call Takeda at (801) 538-4753.
