What would you guess is the largest 4-H project in Montana? If you’ve ever been to the livestock sale at your local 4-H fair, you might think it is swine, but you’d be mistaken. It is shooting sports.
4-H shooting sports encompass several project areas – the most popular in this region are archery, air rifle and air pistol.
Shotgun is growing in numbers, and in Teton County, Cowboy Action shooting is providing a unique and fun opportunity. Other projects include small bore rifle, black powder shooting and hunting.
