Shooting Sports Activities and Events

The Iowa 4-H Shooting Sports Program provides activities at all levels throughout the state to meet our overall goal to “empower youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with a caring adult through a shooting sports related activity.”  4-H members participate in their county or regional programs to develop as shooters and individuals and get the opportunity to participate on a larger scale as they become more proficient.  Currently, many counties and regions collaborate to offer fun shoots and competition for these individuals.  Contact your county Extension office for further details.
