A shooting range in Johnstown transformed into the "North Pole" Saturday as people took their shot at shooting a polar bear target.

The Daisytown Sportsmen Club hosted its 19th annual polar bear shoot.

For $1 a shot, people were able to take a chance at hitting a polar bear target the club set up at its gun range.

When the polar bear was hit in the right spot, a target exploded.

The club came up with the event to give people a different kind of shooting experience in the winter, and to raise money for future club events.

Organizers said the event grows more every year.

“They shoot weapons that they could possibly never afford,” said event coordinator John Zimmerman. “The average price of most of these guns is well over $1,000.”

Every year the winner of the polar bear shoot gets to take home a trophy.
