Check-in at Practice
A parent or guardian is required to stay at Shooting Sports practices. Everyone must sign in and out. We need an accurate count of all in attendance, including participants, parents, siblings, and guests.
Hunters education is NOT required to compete at county shoots. However, to be eligible to compete at the state competition, participants must submit their hunter education card before the July 1, 2020 deadline. Go to 4HOnline and upload a photo of the hunter education card and input the number. (Bowhunters education is also acceptable for Archery.) Information for classes can be found online at http://www.hunter-ed.com, or by contacting Sportsman’s Warehouse, Liberty Firearms Institute, Jax, the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the Fort Collins Archery Association, or the Colorado Bowhunters Association.
A Hunters Education Class is usually offered in the Spring for 4-H members. Please watch for more details in the News section of this website.
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 stand-alone project. If taking part in multiple disciplines, create one project for the discipline of your choice, and include the required sections for each discipline in the Shooting Sports record book. See more information about Projects and Record Books under your shooting discipline’s page.
Additional Requirements for Specific Disciplines
Specific disciplines can have additional requirements. Please visit each discipline’s page to learn more about these requirements and contact the appropriate superintendent with questions.
