CRAIG, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in cooperation with the Northwest Colorado Outfitters Association, Yampa Valley Chapter of Safari Club International, Brothers Meats, and the Wyman Museum invites families to help celebrate the official opening of the new archery range by attending a family ‘Cast and Twang’ seminar, Saturday, July 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wyman Museum east of Craig.
All archery and fishing equipment for the event will be provided free of charge or bring your own fishing gear and/or archery equipment to use for event. Participants can also enjoy a free BBQ lunch.
“This is a an event designed to introduce folks to archery and fishing,” said District Wildlife Manager Mike Swaro. “Kids will have the opportunity to learn together with their parents. Parents can spend some quality time with their children and everyone can learn about fishing, wildlife management and the safe and proper use of archery equipment.”
Swaro encourages experienced archers and anglers to attend and share their knowledge with the class.
Additional activities include 3-D animal archery targets, kid’s bounce house and a real ‘mountain man’ teaching woodsman skills.
Funding and support for the new archery range was provided by Trappers Mine, ColoWyo Mine, Cabelas, Sand Springs Archery, Rummel Chiropractic, Axia Energy, Wyman Museum and CPW.
“This event and archery range would not have been possible without all the support from the community and Nicky Bougler at the Wyman Museum. It was great to see all the interest in opening a public archery range here,” said Swaro.
For protection from the elements, everyone is reminded to bring layers of clothing, sunscreen. and insect repellent. Anglers 16 and older must have a current fishing license to participate in any fishing event.
