MDC hosting free Outdoor Skills Fun Day

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


The Missouri Department of Consvervation (MDC) will be hosting a free Outdoor Skills Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 17, at the Fountain Grove Conservation Area south of Meadville. This will help newcomers, especially youths, learn some basic hunting and shooting skills.

Participants can target shoot with shotguns, pellet guns, and archery. As they do, MDC staff and volunteers will provide tips on safe handling and accurate shooting techniques. Skill demonstrations will include hunting dog training, using a layout hunting blind, trapping, and taxidermy. Smokey the Bear is expected to attend and is anxious to talk to children about preventing wildfires.

MDC will provide all firearms, bows, and equipment needed for the activities. Advance registration is not required for this event. Participants will register when they arrive for a drawing for a single-shot shotgun, a pellet rifle, fishing equipment, and other outdoor gear. A free lunch will be provided. COVID-19 precautions will be observed.

For more information, contact Brandsgaard at adam.brandsgaard@mdc.mo.gov, or by calling 660-646-3140, ext. 1369.
