4-H Shooting Sports success


March 16, 2018

Carter County 4-H Archery Youth

The Carter County 4-H Shooting Stars recently hosted a Postal Match in lieu of their fifth annual invitational shoot, which was canceled due to weather. There were 4-H youth from Carter, Custer, Fallon, Garfield, Prairie, Powder River, Dawson, Rosebud/Treasure, McCone, Beaverhead, Gallatin, Flathead and Wibaux Counties from Montana and Pennington County in South Dakota who participated. Numerous individuals and businesses in Carter, Garfield, and Fallon County offered their support to the youth involved in the shooting sports program. The event would not have been possible without all the volunteers and the community support!

Carter County 4-H Shooting Sports leaders started this invitational five years ago because all other 4-H Shooting Sports competitions were on the western side of the state. They thought there would be an interest and the opportunity to host one on the eastern side. It turned out that there was tremendous support from other 4-H Shooting Sports programs as well as from the 4-H Center in Bozeman. This event is a great opportunity for 4-H members to practice in a competitive setting before the State Shoot in Bozeman, which is held the first weekend in March. All youth that competed are a part of their local 4-H Shooting Sports program and have been practicing and learning proper safety procedures throughout the fall and winter. Youth competed in air pistol, air rifle, and archery. The majority of the youth were between 9 and 12 years old, but there were also some very competitive shooters in older age divisions.

Carter County Shooting Stars are looking forward to next year's invitational and growing and improving the 4-H Shooting Sports program in Southeastern Montana.

4-H Shooting Sports is the most popular project in Montana, closely follow by livestock projects. 4-H Shooting Sports project help youth learn firearm safety, positive youth development, and life skills. It also is a great opportunity to build youth-adult partnerships. Shooting Sports competitions are intended to provide a friendly learning atmosphere and to promote the 4-H spirit.
