On Oct. 12 at 4 p.m., Marquette area hunter education instructors, sportsmen groups, and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks are sponsoring a "fun shoot" at the Army National Guard Weapons Range. This event is open to all hunter education graduates. The purpose of this event is to have an entertaining day on the range in preparation for the upcoming fall hunting seasons.

Participants may bring their own shotgun or shoot with one provided by the department. Archery, .22 rifles, black powder, and a Laser Shot computer hunting simulator will also be available. A local dog club will have a hunting dog demonstration, and local fur trappers will have a display.

The National Guard Range is 2 1/2 miles west of Burma Road on Farrelly and one-half mile south on England Road. Signs will be posted to help with directions.

Pre-registration through Kanopolis State Park is encouraged. For more information, phone (785) 546-2565 or email kanopolissp@wp.state.ks.us.
