Hey Utah TFLers, going shooting this weekend?

Hey everybody. I've got 3 guys who are new to shooting and want to learn, so I'm going out to the Gathering Bowl Saturday morning. Nothing fancy.

Drop by if any of you guys want to do some plinking.

Shooting this weekend

Sorry but its the first weekend of deer hunt. Be doing a little shooting but not much else.

sorry, no can do...

Opening day of deer hunt I always go fishing to
try to stay out of harm's way. Only problem is
lately too many other people have the same idea.

I wanted to go deer hunting this year, but it just wasn't going to happen. Oh well.

I would like to take a trip out. I'll have to see how fast I can get my Wife's car fixed(brakes).

Zane, if you don't fix the brakes, imagine how fast you could get there!

I'll be down at Lake Powell, otherwise I'd be there.

Bobwest - "out of harm's way"?!? Sad that's how you feel. As a Hunter Ed. Instructor I have access to the hunting accident data and know that the rate of accidental injury for ALL hunting in Utah is down around 5-7/125,000+ hunters. Pretty good odds in my book (though of course the goal is 0!). Had a similar experience/conversation at Tuscany last night.

My work is never done.

I really need to come out. I brought a new "friend" home today.

A Century(Ouch!!) Centurion 58 FAL. It is a little rough(of course, its from our friends at Century), but it does have an Imbel receiver. Sooooo, I need to get out and shoot it!

<<"out of harm's way"?!?>>

My apologies Doug,
you're correct about hunting being a lot safer these days than when 250,000 Utahns took to the hills years ago when I first started hunting.
