The 4-H Shooting Sports season began the last week in November and shooters are now well on their way into the season that will run through the beginning of March.
Youth, age 9 to 18, shoot air pistol, air rifle and archery at the Pondera Shooting Sports Complex on Mondays and Tuesdays each week.
Each week, participants focus on improving their technical skills, practicing good safety and learning more about their discipline through instruction and 4-H curriculum.

The rumors have it that Cope Graphics is no more, but Jesse Copenhaver, owner, begs to differ.
With his newer Main St. location between The N’ Thing and Wells Fargo, it’s hard to miss him.
Copenhaver stays busy with his business services, including cards, signs, banners and magnets. Don’t forget that if you have a new business, he can also create a one-of-a-kind logo. He comments, “There isn’t much we don’t do.”
The Holiday’s bring a great opportunity to businesses with combo deals on banners and other essentials, Copenhaver suggests stopping by for your chance to save.
