Limited to 20 participants, course will teach basic to intermediate wingshooting
PRATT -- The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks will hold a three-session clinic entitled "Beginning Wingshooting" on Aug. 5, 12, and 19 at the Pratt Gun Club. The range is located one-half mile north of Pratt Community College, just east of Highway K-61 north of Pratt.

This training is designed to build wingshooting skills from basic to intermediate ability. The first session (Aug.5) will stress gun fit, proper gun mount, target focus, and live fire at incoming and outgoing straight-away shots. The second (Aug 12) and third (Aug 19) sessions will build on the skills learned in the first session and will introduce more challenging crossing and quartering shots. Each session will run from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Shotguns, ammunition, targets, and eye and ear protection will be provided for a fee of $20, due at the first session. Shooters need to be available for all three sessions. There will be no refunds or pro-rated fees.

Pre-registration is required. Contact the KDWP Hunter Education office at 620-672- 5911 to register. The course will be limited to 20 shooters.
