4-H Western Heritage Shooting Sports Program
Invitation from Teton County – As things are slowly thawing out, we’re making plans for the 2018 Teton County Western Heritage Shooting Sports program. The Western Heritage program is a great way to learn about firearm safety, how to properly and accurately shoot replica firearms from the 1860-1900 time period, and gain knowledge of Western America’s traditions.
We had a great year last year with several 4-H’ers competing at the national contest in Fort Benton. The 2018 national contest will be held this year in Deer Lodge and then move out of state for several years. This is a great project for both boys and girls and younger and older members.
We meet one Saturday per month at the Sun River Rangers shooting complex. The complex is west of Simms toward Augusta on Highway 21. It’s about 2 miles past the Lowry Bridge/Flowerre Road turn on the left. We’ll be meeting April 21, May 19, June 16, July 21, August 18, and September 15. The practices will run from 10 a.m. till 3 p.m. with a potluck lunch at noon. At this point, 4-H’ers are only responsible for their old west looking clothing. Teton County has a good collection of replica fire arms, but 4-H’ers are welcome to bring their own replicas. The ammunition is being provided through a grant from the Friends of the NRA. For more information, check out the website for the program www.4-hwesternheritageproject.org. If interested in participating or if you have questions, call Brent Roeder at the office at (406) 466-2491.
