Get in on free family ‘Cast ‘n Blast’

There’s probably no entry in Webster’s Dictionary for the term “Cast ‘n Blast.”

But you really don’t need someone to explain this one.

Sponsored by the Northwest Chapter of the Colorado Outfitters Association, Colowyo Coal Co., Safari Club International and the Colorado Division of Wildlife, this free day of family activities includes fishing, shotgun shooting and archery. All equipment is provided.

It’s on May 22 in Axial Basin, a broad sagebrush park between Meeker and Craig on Colorado Highway 13.

If you know the place, you know this really is where the deer (and elk) and antelope play.

WHAT: “Cast ‘n Blast” includes shotgun and rifle shooting, archery and bait and fly fishing.

WHERE: Axial Basin, about midway between Meeker and Craig on Colorado Highway 13.

WHEN: 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. May 22.

WHO: A host of generous sponsors provides equipment, training and lunch. Fishing licenses are required (16 years and older).

HOW: It’s free, but space is limited. Sign up early by calling the Meeker DOW office, 970-878-6090.
