Montana -(Ammoland.com)- A free youth outdoor skills event is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 2, at the Glasgow Trap Club.
The event is organized and funded by donations and volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, The Glasgow Trap Club, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
The event –which will include clay pigeon, turkey silhouette and pellet-gun shooting stations, a casting clinic, as well as an archery range with 3-D hunting targets–is open to all youths up to 18 years old. Due to safety concerns, youths 9 and under can participate in all events except shotgun shooting. Each activity station will be fully staffed by qualified instructors.
Shotguns, pellet guns, ammunition, targets, fishing poles and archery equipment will be provided at no cost, and participants between ages 10 and 18 can bring their own shotguns and ammunition if they want. Organizers ask that personal firearms are unloaded and in safe, operating condition before bringing them to the event.
Youth registration begins onsite at 5 p.m., and the field activities will start at 5:30 p.m. A barbeque dinner is also scheduled, and a variety of prizes will be awarded to participants. The event ends at dark.
The Glasgow Trap Club is located off Skylark Road, north of Glasgow. After turning onto Skylark Road from Highway 2, veer right after a tenth of a mile, and then veer left. Follow the gravel road another two-tenths of a mile until arriving at the Trap Club on the right. Please contact Ed Sugg at 406-230-2033 with any questions.
