4-H Swamp Shooters provide shooting education and training for skeet (20 gauge), archery, and small bore rifle (.22 LR) for youth ages 9-19. Swamp Shooters meet on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 1:30-3:30pm. Shooters will occupy the 50-yard, skeet and archery ranges. Equipment is available for those who want to participate but do not have a firearm or ammunition. These shooters and others of their age will determine the future of our sport, so please do what you can to help them have positive experiences on our ranges. The Swamp Shooters enjoy sharing the range, but there are some restrictions which you should be aware of when being on the range during the schedule practice times.
PLEASE NOTE: ON THE 50-YARD RANGE THERE WILL BE A CALIBER (NO HIGH POWER RIFLE / PISTOLS) LIMITATION DUE TO NOISE LEVELS WHICH ARE DISTRUPTIVE TO INSTRUCTION AND THE FACT THE YOUNG SHOOTERS / PARENTS DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED HIGHER LEVEL HEARING PROTECTION. ALSO, THERE WILL BE A REQUIREMENT TO TAKE COMMANDS FROM THE 4-H RANGE SAFETY OFFICER AND ASC MEMBERS SHOULD EXPECT TO HAVE FREQUENT STOP/STARTS AND 4-H RULES FOR SHOWING UNLOAD AND CLEAR (E.G. EMPTY CHAMBER FLAGS OR CLEAR BORE INDICATORS).
