Naches Sportsmans’ Days
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets

On the morning of Friday September 8th, 2017, we set up the Selah Sweets vending trailer at the Naches Historical Train Depot for Sportsmans’ Days. The sky was smokey from all the forest fires west of town. The air was much better than the day before.

The Sportmans’ Day event kicked off on Friday night at 5 PM when the Midway opened. There was live music and a lot of other fun things going on. The event ran until 10 PM that night.

Saturday the air was clear and there was a lot going on all day. We first headed downtown to watch the parade. There was a Kids Parade and then the Grand Parade. The Wenas Mammoth Foundation had their Mobile Exhibit for people to see. There was a Kid’s Korner at Art Deco Park. At noon was the Grand Opening Ceremony with the presentation of Colors and the Midway opened. In the afternoon there was a Fishing Derby for all the fishermen between the ages of 4-12 years old. And there was so much more fun throughout the day into the night!


Sportsmans’ Days provides a great time of community fellowship and fun which draws in visitors to Naches from around Central Washington.

Sportsman’s Days is one of the longest running community day events in the Yakima Valley. The event features free entertainment throughout the weekend along with a midway, rides, food booths, game booths, silent auction, button drawings, free shows and much more.

Upcoming: WDFW hosts meetings on target shooting options for Wenas Wildlife Area

~ PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ~

Wenas Wildlife Area
Wenas Wildlife Area

WDFW NEWS RELEASE
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091

http://wdfw.wa.gov/

April 19, 2016

Contact: Cindi Confer Morris, (509) 697-4503

WDFW hosts meetings on target shooting options for Wenas Wildlife Area

YAKIMA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will hold public meetings this month to discuss target shooting options for the Wenas Wildlife Area located between Ellensburg and Yakima. The meetings will focus on the department’s plans to develop designated shooting areas to improve public safety and reduce fire risk while preserving target shooting opportunities at the wildlife area.

The meetings are scheduled for:

  • 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 26, at the Hal Holmes Center, 209 N. Ruby St., Ellensburg.
  • 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 27, at Selah Middle School, 411 N. First St., Selah.

Unregulated target shooting is a chronic problem throughout the 105,000-acre wildlife area, said WDFW Wildlife Area Manager Cindi Confer Morris. Target shooting at a number of informal locations at the north and south ends of the wildlife area have caused several fires in recent years, endangered public safety and created significant litter issues.

After gathering input from target shooters, residents and wildlife area recreation users at public meetings last year, the department focused on two possible locations to develop a designated shooting range on the south end of the wildlife area.

One possible location is the existing Sheep Company site along Sheep Company Road. The second option, located about a mile north, is the Bull Pasture site.

The agency’s preferred option is development of a shooting range at the Bull Pasture site, which will include:

  • Construction of a 25-yard and 100-yard shooting alley with safety berms;
  • Creation of a shotgun/trap shooting area; and
  • Graveled parking area for 40 vehicles.

Confer Morris said the Bull Pasture site is the agency’s preferred location because it has the greatest potential for reducing fire risk and improving safety for recreational users. Fill material onsite would allow for 20-foot safety berms, making it the more cost-effective site option, she said.

“The visible location of the Bull Pasture site would also help reduce illegal activity and enforcement challenges at the Wildlife Area,” Confer Morris said. “We expect this new location for target shooting would provide a positive environment for shooters of all ages and levels.” 

If the department decides to move forward, construction would start early next year.

In addition to developing a new shooting range, the department proposes to:

  • Restrict recreational target shooting to the existing Durr Road West shooting area on the north end of the wildlife area, and the selected site along Sheep Company road on the south end.
  • Close Buffalo Road to motorized access to reduce user conflicts.
  • Maintain fire season shooting restrictions during late spring and summer.

The public meetings will include a presentation with details of the shooting range site options. After the presentation, the public will have the opportunity to provide input to WDFW staff.
More information about the Wenas Wildlife Area is available online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/wildlife_areas/wenas/.
