Youth develop life skills (i.e. decision making responsibility) when participating in the 4-H Shooting Sports Program while learning about and practicing the safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment. The program is led by volunteer adult and teen leaders who complete a weekend training to become state certified instructors in a shooting discipline.The Washington County 4-H Shooting Sports Program is offered through the Bull's-Eye 4-H Club. The Club holds a fall and winter session each year. Boys and girls ages 9 to 19 can choose to participate in one or both sessions. Each session includes seven meetings where members have hands-on learning in the rifle (air and .22) pistol (air and .22) shotgun (20 gauge) muzzleloader archery and/or hunting wildlife disciplines. During business meetings members decide on and carry out community service projects promotional displays recognition activities etc.
