Wingshooting Clinic Scheduled for WSRC on May 13

Wed, April 26, 2017

SPARTA, IL – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and the Illinois Conservation Foundation are partnering with the Friends of the World Shooting and Recreational Complex and the National Wild Turkey Federation – Randolph County Strutters and Cutters Chapter in sponsoring a wingshooting clinic for youth, young adults, and women on Saturday, May 13 at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex (WSRC) in Sparta, IL.

The WSRC Youth/Women’s Wingshooting Clinic is an introductory clinic designed for boys and girls 10-15, young adults 16-18 and women interested in learning to shoot or improving their ability to shoot a shotgun at moving targets.  Because there are co-sponsors, this youth/women’s clinic is provided at no cost to participants.

Youth/Women’s wingshooting clinics are about learning to safely shoot a shotgun at moving targets with reasonable reliability.  The clinic starts with a shotgun safety presentation at 10:00 a.m., followed by a short small group hands-on shotgun orientation session with each group’s wingshooting instructor.  The afternoon is spent in the field shooting clay targets.  Shotguns and shotshells are provided.  Not only do the participants learn to safely handle and shoot a shotgun, but they learn that being skilled at shooting clay targets is a lot of fun.

This clinic is taught by instructors certified by the IDNR and the National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA).  The participant-to-instructor ratio is four to one.  Typically, participants are grouped with others of similar shooting skill ability. 

Advanced registration is required.  Registration forms for the WSRC Wingshooting Clinic can be accessed at https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/recreation/wingshooting/Pages/default.aspx  Once. the Wingshooting Website is accessed, click on the “Calendar” button; then click on the date to access the registration forms.  Follow the instructions on the forms.
