Shotgun shooting basics taught to women at May 18 clinic In Vernal

Salt Lake City Women can learn the basics of shotgun shooting at a May 18 clinic at the Vernal Rod & Gun Club, 3500 N. 2500 W. in Vernal. The clinic runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The clinic is offered by the Division of Wildlife Resources' Becoming an Outdoors Woman program.

"Women who are interested in hunting aren't the only ones who should attend," says RaLynne Takeda, Becoming an Outdoors Woman coordinator for the DWR. "There are target shooting ranges all around the state that women can go to and have fun using the skills they'll learn."

The clinic costs $30, which includes targets and lunch. Women must preregister by May 1 by calling Takeda at (801) 538-4710, or sending her an e-mail at nrdwr.rtakeda@state.ut.us.

Participants must bring their own ammunition and a shotgun to the clinic. Women who don't have their own shotgun can make advanced arrangements with Takeda and she'll obtain one for them.

Women will learn basic shotgun shooting skills and will gets lots of practice shooting at flying, clay targets. "We've held this clinic in Salt Lake City the past couple of years, and it's been one of the most popular we've ever offered," Takeda says. "Those who have attended have had a great time and have learned a skill they'll enjoy the rest of their lives."
