JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Saturday in Jacksonville, parents and their children flocked to the new trap Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation shooting-sports complex on Graham Road.
The $3.2 million facility is expected to attract thousands and bring millions of dollars in revenue to the city. It features 14 trap fields with three skeet overlays, an education building, a fishing facility and a 3D outdoor archery range.
The state's shooting sport coordinator said the complex will be great during competition season.
"This gives them a place to centralize with good food, good hotel lodging. The community supports this program 100 percent, and it gives a place for everybody to come to really enjoy the outdoor shooting," said Chuck Woodson.
The complex is expected to see around 6,000 kids visit for state and regional tournaments, and the program, which began in 2007, is now the largest youth shooting-sports program in the nation.
