Free shooting

On Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, you can enjoy a free day of target shooting. Just bring your bow — and your current hunting, fishing or combination license — to either of the DWR's shooting ranges.

If you have a current Utah hunting, fishing or combination license, you can visit either of the Division of Wildlife Resources public shooting ranges on Saturday and shoot for free. The only exception are the trap and skeet ranges at the facilities, where shooting will be half price.

“We’ll go through quite a few clay targets at the trap and skeet ranges that day,” says Gary Cook, Wildlife Recreation coordinator for the DWR. “Charging half price will help us cover the cost.”

The DWR is offering the free and discounted offer to celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day. To take advantage of the offer, simply bring your current hunting, fishing or combination license to either of these ranges on Sept. 22:

Cache Valley Public Shooting Range, 2851 W. 200 North, Logan

Lee Kay Public Shooting Range, 6000 W. 2100 South, Salt Lake City

Cook says the two DWR ranges are among the best in Utah. “They’re great places to shoot,” he says. “We hope you’ll take advantage of this offer and visit them on National Hunting and Fishing Day.”

For more information, call the Cache Valley Public Shooting Range at 435-753-4600 or the Lee Kay Public Shooting Range at 801-972-1326.
