Crawford County 4-H Shooting Sports
Members of the Crawford County 4-H Shooting Sports Club were the first group to hold an event at the Crawford County shooting range.  The 4-H club held their monthly meeting on Saturday, September 14th.  The 4-H club meets monthly and rotates disciplines of archery, rifle, trap, muzzleloader and wildlife skills.  4-Her’s are instructed by 4-H certified instructors who volunteer their time. 
Crawford County 4-H Shooting Sports Club was started over six years ago.  Mary Wadsworth was trained as the coordinator for the club.  Several volunteers were trained by Iowa State University Extension staff in the disciplines of rifle and shotgun to get the club started.  There are now 7 volunteers trained in all the disciplines (archery, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader and wildlife skills).  The club has grown in the last six year from 7 to 47 members. 
4-H Shooting Sports promotes the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship and ethical behavior.  Youth are trained to learn safe and responsible use of firearms including sound decision making, self-discipline and concentration.  Youth are also learning about conserving our natural resources so they will be there for future generations to enjoy.  
Extension programs are available to all without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability.
