Lewis & Clark County 4-H Shooting Sports Project

Shooting Sports is a safe, fun and challenging activity that can become a lifelong passion to be shared with the family. The safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment is the primary focus of the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Members will improve marksmanship skills, have the opportunity to compete, and learn self-discipline and personal responsibility.

All 4-H shooting sports leaders must attend a state training workshop and become certified in their shooting discipline before serving as project leaders. Some counties may have further requirements depending on shooting discipline. It is strongly encouraged, and required in some counties, that a parent, guardian or other responsible adult be willing to attend project meetings with the 4-H member. There is opportunity for practice under the watchful eye of trained leaders who have the final say in safety matters and the behavior of the youth enrolled. Keeping current record books is required of all members. Check with your county Extension office for further requirements.

To enroll in 4-H shooting sports, students must be 9 years old on October 1 of the current 4-H year. The only exception is 1) the BB Safety course which is open to those turning 8 years old by October 1 of the current 4-H year and 2) the Western Heritage Project.
