Zion National Park is located in the heart of Southern Utah and one of Utah’s favorite past and current times is Sport Shooting. Whats is sport shooting? Well, Sports Shooting is a great outdoor activity from most ages and can vary from rifle to hand guns. Im sure we have all seen a cowboy western or two at some point and yes those 6 shooter revelers are a big part of sport shooting. With many states having extremely strict gun laws many people in the U.S. have never been able to even try shooting a gun. Yes, safety is the number one concern when shooting but that doesn’t mean it can’t be an absolute thrill and great activity for anyone. From small 22 Lr rifles for target practice to to shooting clay pigeons and skeet with a shot gun there is usually something for everyone in sport shooting. It is s great activity for groups, families or just a few friends looking for something different to do when in Zion or St George (Southern Utah). While there are several great sport shooting parks and ranges in Souther Utah you will definitely want to call ahead and talk to one of the following locations to see if it fits your wants and needs.
