LAS VEGAS – Jan. 22, 2021 – Ducks Unlimited’s Ducks in the Desert Continental Shoot sporting clay competition will take place March 4-7, at the world-class Clark County Shooting Complex in North Las Vegas.
The competition, now in its 35th year, hosts skilled clay shooters from around North America supporting wetlands conservation and shooting for more than $75,000 in prizes.
In 2021, the Las Vegas Continental Shoot will feature the 50-target sub-gauge and Super Sporting squad events, other regular events including 5-STAND, several side games and new games.
All events are governed by National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) rules, but membership in the NSCA is not required for a shooter to participate in this tournament.
Created in 1986, the 2021 Ducks in the Desert Shoot features title sponsors Browning Arms, Federal Ammunition and The Plaza Hotel.
“We are looking forward to a record turnout for our 35th anniversary of the Ducks in the Desert Continental Shoot,” said Jim Konkel, chair of DU’s National Shooting Committee. “We’re going to shake some things up and start a few new things this time around. As always, it’s going to be a good time raising money for the ducks. Outdoor events are one of the few types of gatherings allowed during the pandemic and we know people are eager to get outdoors and get back to some sense of normalcy. Our shooting event is a great way to do that.”
Ducks Unlimited also plans to host the annual Eastern Continental Shoot in 2021, at the world-class Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy in Branson, Mo. Registration information will be available later at www.ducks.org/easternshoot.
