Meeker County 4-H Shooting Sports Project Details

The Minnesota 4-H Shooting Sports & Wildlife Program is designed to promote life skills through a safe and educational program.  This program is led by trained and certified 4-H leaders.  Young people learn by doing, as they experience hands-on learning in shooting sports and wildlife education.
Disciples Include:
Archery
Air Rifle/Pistol
Shotgun
.22 Rifle
Wildlife
Muzzleloading
Each discipline teaches safety, concentration, self-discipline, self-confidence, goal setting, decision-making and courtesy as the young people learn basic skills and build toward more advanced activities.  Both competitive and cooperative skills are included.  Participants are exposed to local policies, regulations, laws, and ethical behavior both by repeated demonstration and through personal practice.

*Equipment is not needed to participate.  The county has some for member use.
