Hunters education is NOT required to compete at County Shoots. However, to compete at the State Competition, participants must submit their hunter education card BEFORE the County Shoot. Go to 4HOnline.com and upload a photo of the hunter education card, as well as inputting the number. Hunters education or bowhunters education are required for Archery. Information for classes can be found online at http://www.hunter-ed.com, or by contacting Sportsman’s Warehouse, Liberty Firearms, Jax, the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the Fort Collins Archery Association, or the Colorado Bowhunters Association.
A youth must participate in the county shoot to qualify for the state competition. Larimer County also requires a youth to exhibit at the county fair and be awarded at least a red ribbon to participate in the state shooting competitions.
To complete the Shooting Sports project, members must create either a display exhibit or standalone project. If taking part in multiple disciplines, create a project for the discipline of your choice, and include the required sections for each discipline in the Shooting Sports record book. See the Projects page under your shooting discipline for more information about projects and record books.
