Green River shooting park to host event
Green River 3-gun shoot competition. Hit as many targets as possible, as quickly as possible, using three different guns.
If you're a deadeye looking for a challenge, you won't want to miss the upcoming 3-Gun Shoot competition. The event will be held at the Green River Shooting Sports Park, east of town, on April 12. It starts at 10 a.m.
Participants will complete three courses of fire: one with a shotgun, one with a .22 rifle and one with a .22 pistol. The goal is to hit as many targets as possible, as quickly as possible, using three different firearms.
The April 12 event is open to the public, and costs $15 per shooter (to cover the cost of ammunition and targets). Children who compete must be graduates of Utah's Hunter Education program.
Participants should bring their own shotguns, .22 rifles and .22 pistols. However, if you don't have your own firearms, the range has some you can borrow.
Range supervisors will be at the event, coaching shooters and assisting as needed.
"This competition is just for fun," says Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "Cash, trophies or prizes will not be awarded."
