From the Arizona Game and Fish Department - Event raises funds to ‘Save Recreational Shooting in Arizona

Arizona Fish & Game DepartmentPhoenix, Arizona – The future of recreational shooting in Arizona looks a little brighter after a successful fundraising event at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix on Saturday, April 12. The Arizona Game and Fish Department teamed up with TreadLightly! to sponsor the combination fun shoot and dinner party attended by nearly 200 people.

Recreational shooting in Arizona came under increased scrutiny when the Sonoran Desert National Monument, one of the last parcels of public land open to recreational shooting within a 30 mile radius of Phoenix, was ready to ban recreational target shooting. As an alternative to closure, Game and Fish, TreadLightly!, the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service were asked to develop a model public/private partnership to keep Arizona’s public lands open to recreational shooting. This partnership is considered a pilot project that can, when proven successful, be replicated across the nation.
