The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will host a free trap shooting clinic for women on Saturday, May 19 in Green River. The clinic will include introductory hands-on tutorials on shotguns, as well as time at the shooting range. It’s a good opportunity for women who have little or no experience at trap shooting as well as those who want to take their shooting abilities to the next level, organizers say.

“Shooting clay pigeons out of the sky can be challenging. But, with the right form and a little practice, everyone has what it takes to get good at it,” said Walt Maldonado, DWR wildlife recreation specialist in southeastern Utah.

The classroom portion of the clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Green River City Hall, located at 460 East Main St. After lunch, participants can put their skills to the test at the Green River Shooting Sports Park, east of town. Guns and ammunition will be provided, but if participants have a shotgun and ammunition they can bring their own.

Participation is limited to the first 20 women, ages 12 or older, who register online at bit.ly/womens_trap. Participants must provide their registration tickets at the door. For more information, call Maldonado at 435-820-8147.
