“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.

    Yet, recent survey data suggest only 18 percent of beef-cow operations in the United States evaluate the cowherd for pregnancy. This is unfortunate, since a large portion of the financial losses attributed to infertility in beef cows is attributed to maintaining open cows.
