“The trap shoot, sponsored each spring and fall by Northwest District 4H and supported by the Grand National Gun Club, teaches young people gun safety and shows them a sport they can enjoy whether they are hunters or not,” said Jim Rhodes, Northwet District 4-H program specialist.

“Safety is one of the primary lessons 4-H’ers learn,” Rhodes said.

“For example, before a team can even register to shoot, all members and coaches must be trained.”

Besides shooting skills and gun safety, youths on a county trap team learn to work with a coach, and they get the experience of both team sports and individual competition.

Trap shooting is only one part of the 4-H Shooting Sports Program. Programs are organized in archery, air rifle, air pistol, hunting, .22 rifle, .22 pistol, black powder and living history in various counties across the state as a result of statewide 4H instructor trainings that are held annually.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
