Our Mission

We are dedicated to teaching firearm/archery safety and responsibility along with wildlife to all, while allowing kids to experience the fun and excitement of shooting sports and the outdoors.
The goal of the 4-H Shooting Sports project is to promote youth development by instilling safe habits, self-discipline, teamwork, and knowledge in a safe, family-oriented, and encouraging environment. Shooting disciplines that are taught to 4-H member’s ages 8 (and 3rd grade) to 19 include: archery, air rifle, .22 rifle, Muzzleloading, shotgun, and wildlife. 4-H members must be 12 years old and have completed the DNR WI Hunter Safety Program and received their Hunter Safety Certificate before participating in the shotgun and Muzzleloading programs.
