The 4-H Shooting Sports program is designed to teach youth about the safe handling of firearms, the ethical use of firearms and bows in sport, and about the role of conservation in natural resources. The main emphasis is safety.
The program includes instruction on the proper handling and shooting of .22 rifles, air pistols, shotguns, muzzleloaders, and bows. While the hunter education is not part of the curriculum, there will be opportunity for youth to enroll in a hunter education and bowhunter education program through this course. The range & supply fee for the class will be $20 for 4-H members and $25 for non-members, a fee which includes 4-H enrollment. Youth must be twelve years of age as of Feb. 5 to participate in this program and the program is limited to 18 enrolled. Those interested in this program may call John Bowe at 668-488 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
