DOUGLAS – Fourteen Platte County 4-H’ers hit the bullseye at the 4-H state shoot competition July 11-14.  The state shoot contest brings over 500 youth from across the state together for 3 days of competition in Douglas for individual and team efforts.  Shooting sports is one of the most popular projects in Wyoming, and the state shoot contest is the culmination of youth’s efforts in these projects.  
4-H’ers participating in shooting sports projects have the opportunity to learn firearm safety, shooting skills, and marksmanship under the direction of dedicated volunteers.  Members can participate in air rifle, .22 rifle, air pistol, .22 pistol, shotgun, muzzleloader, and archery.  Shotgun leader Matthew Johnson commented on Platte County 4-H’ers efforts, “All the kids improved their skills and shot well.  I am proud of their efforts.”  If you are interested in the 4-H Shooting Sports program, contact Stacy Buchholz at the Platte County Extension Office, (307) 322-3667 or [email protected]
