Webster Co. 4-H’ers compete in state shooting sports match

Eight Webster County 4-H members competed at the State Shooting Sports Match in Searsboro at Big Springs Shooting Complex on Aug. 29.

4-H Safety and Education in Shooting Sports (SESS) uses skills and disciplines of shooting to assist young people and their leaders in obtaining knowledge and developing life skills. The disciplines include archery, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader and wildlife skills. The program educates our youth to:

• Learn safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment, including sound decision making, self-discipline, and concentration.

• Encourage understanding of our natural resources and the development of a personal environmental stewardship ethic through participation in shooting, hunting, and related activities.
