I have only had the title of "Dad" for well over 8 years now. So far, Father's Day has been pretty cool. My only requirement for Father's Day, is that we do something outside and it has got to be "guy stuff." That can be anything really. Fishing is always a great standby. You can also go up in the mountains and shoot guns. How about just chill at home and grill meat? For me, it is flinging arrows at foam animal targets. That's right, my family enjoys using our childhood imagination to pretend we're on a safari hunting everything from deer and elk, to mutant mosquitoes and even Bigfoot. Not to mention, the nearly 10 foot tall bear.

The Five Valley's Archery Club has got the best of both categories, Something outside and "guy stuff." There's camping and 100 3-D archery targets to shoot. The 41st annual BEAR SHOOT is happening Father's Day weekend at Clearwater Junction, June 19th and 20th. It is a two day archery event, with 50 targets both Saturday and Sunday. What better way to do "Dad stuff" with the kids, then a little outdoor adventure?

Registration starts at 7am Saturday and Sunday (6/19-20) or pre-register Friday night.

Adults (both days) $30 or $18 per day

Youth (both days) $25 or $18 per day

Tons of Giveaways and Raffles, INCLUDING TAG SOUP!

This event has become a family tradition for many Montana families. I guarantee Dad will have a blast camping and shooting archery with the family.
