Ducks Unlimited continental shooting event announced in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS – Dec. 12, 2012 – Competitive sporting clay shooters are encouraged to register now for the 2013 Ducks Unlimited Las Vegas Continental Shoot. The annual event will take place Feb. 21-24, 2013, at the Pro Gun Club in Boulder City, Nev., formerly known as Desert Hills Shooting Club.

All events will be governed by National Sporting Clays Association rules. The main event, as well as the 12-gauge prelim and the 50-target five-stand event, will run seven NSCA classes. Prizes will be provided by Browning and Winchester, including AA Winchester target loads. Shooters can use any NSCA-compliant shells to compete.

“Ducks Unlimited is excited to celebrate the clay target shooting sports with another national shoot,” said Jim Konkel, chair of Ducks Unlimited’s national shooting committee. “The guaranteed gun and ammo prize package should lead to a very competitive field.”

In the 100-target prelim and the 200-target main event, payouts will include event champion, seven NSCA classes (M, AA, A, B, C, D and E) and one Hunter Lewis class for every 30 hunter entries.
