June 23, 2016 - June 26, 2016

Would you like to learn how to fish, hunt and shoot? Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering a weekend seminar for men only in June.

Learn to fish, hunt, shootMONTROSE, Colo. – Isn’t it about time you got away from that computer screen and got into Colorado’s backcountry for some real adventure? Men, ages 18-40, who are interested in learning how to fish and hunt are invited to a weekend “Cast and Blast” sponsored by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, June 24-26.

“There is no better way to burn off the stress of this 24-7 world than to get out of town and into Colorado’s mountains for some hunting and fishing,” said Mark Caddy, district wildlife manager in the Montrose area, “We want to teach you some skills to make you comfortable in the woods.”

The weekend class is especially designed for men who have no experience or limited experience with firearms, archery, hunting and fishing, and camping. Participants will learn some of the basics of wildlife biology, fly fishing, shotgun shooting and archery while relaxing in a remote corner of Colorado.

The weekend event will be held at the beautiful Lone Cone-Jim Olterman State Wildlife Area located north of Norwood, San Miguel County in southwestern Colorado. Firearms and fishing gear will be provided. Attendees will be selected from applications submitted to the Montrose Service Center of Colorado Parks and Wildlife at 2300 South Townsend Ave; Montrose, CO 81401. Applications can be obtained by calling 970-252-6000 or by e-mail at darlene.trainor@state.co.us. A $40 refundable deposit is required.
