Apply to be on the 2020 4-H Shooting Sports Hunting Team. This team will represent South Dakota 4-H Shooting Sports at the 2019 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships in Grand Island, NE on June 21-25, 2020.
The Hunting Skills contest is a skills and knowledge based contest. Animal Identification (wings, fur, and habitat), orienteering, and hunting knowledge (based on the NRA Hunting guide) is tested as well as shooting ability. The 2019 hunting contest included 3D (archery), sporting clays (shotgun), and paper animal targets (rifle). A basic comfort level with all three disciplines would be helpful, but is not required.
Please include a reference letter from one of your shooting sports coaches with this application.
Applications are due November 19, 2019 and can be sent to:
State 4-H Office
Attn: John Keimig,
Berg Agricultural Hall 128 Box 2207E,
