The Department of Natural Resources is offering an Introduction to Sporting Clays class through the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program at the Detroit Sportsmen’s Congress in Utica on Sept. 25 from 1 to 5 p.m.
For beginners as well as those who would like to sharpen their shotgun skills, this shooting clinic will provide expert instruction on the basics of sporting clays shooting, including where to watch for the target, proper shotgun mount and how to identify target lead and target/firearm relationship.
Attendees may bring their own shotgun to this class or one will be provided for their use. Only 20-gauge ammunition will be provided; those bringing their own 12-gauge shotgun will need to provide their own ammunition. Eye and ear protection will be available. Cost per person is $30.
