The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and La Sal Mountain Outfitters will host a free family archery shoot at the La Sal Mountain Outfitter’s shop and indoor archery range, 3031 S. U.S. 191, near Moab.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. until noon. Families and individuals are invited to participate and try out the sport of archery. Bows, arrows and targets will be provided, free of charge, to anyone who wants to participate.

“If you or your children have ever wanted to shoot a bow and arrow, this is a great opportunity to do so without buying equipment or making special arrangements,” said Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for Utah DWR.

Stettler said supervision, training in how to shoot a bow and arrow and all of the equipment needed to participate will be provided at the clinic.

“The event is free,” Stettler said. “Pre-registration is required so we know how many persons to expect.”

For more information or to pre-register, call Stettler at 435-613-3707 or send an email to
