Shooting skills for women event May 30


If you’re a female age 18 or older and are interested in learning the ins-and-outs of shooting firearms in a fun, low-pressure atmosphere, consider joining other like-minded women at the Shooting Skills for Women event May 30 at Lil’ Toledo Lodge, 10600 170th Rd, Chanute.

Hosted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Lil’ Toledo Lodge, Kansas Bow Hunters Association, and the Kansas Wildlife Officers Association, this annual shooting event will provide women with the opportunity to handle and fire a variety of firearms. Participants will gain confidence and experience with shooting shotguns, revolvers, semiautomatic hand guns, small caliber rifles, big bore rifles, and black powder rifles. A variety of archery equipment will also be available for use, including long bows, recurve bows, and compound bows. No experience is required, and all guns and equipment will be provided.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Kansas Bowhunters Association and prizes will be drawn for.

The cost to attend is $50.00 and pre-registration is required. The event will be open to the first 40 women who register and pay.
