SALT LAKE CITY — Members of the public can shoot bows and arrows and firearms free of charge at two public shooting ranges in May.

The Division of Wildlife Resources is hosting the open houses at its two public shooting ranges — one in Salt Lake City and one in Logan. 

Lee Kay range in Salt Lake City, 6000 W. 2100 South, will hold its open houses May 4 from noon to 8 p.m. and May 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Cache Valley range in Logan, 2851 W. 200 North, will make its facilities available May 11 from 1 to 8 p.m. and May 12 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Shotgun ranges will not be free, but people can shoot there for a reduced price. Free equipment and instruction will be provided each day.   

Those who attend also can watch expert shooters — dressed like cowboys from the Old West — demonstrate their shooting skills while moving through a course that includes stationary and pop-up targets.   

For more information, call the Lee Kay range at 801-972-1326, or the Cache Valley range at 435-753-4600.
