REESES MILL - Fall is the time to think about being outdoors and shooting sports.
The Mineral County 4-H and Archery and Wildlife Club will meet on Friday, Sept. 8, from 6-8 p.m, at the Camp Minco archery range. Youths will shoot and discuss the schedule for the year.
4-H Archery is open to any registered 4-H member who is in at least the third grade and/or 9 years old. Youth who aren’t enrolled in a Mineral County 4-H Club who would like to be a part of the Archery program, will need to enroll with the 4-H Archery and Wildlife Club.
One of three disciplines in the WV 4H Shooting Sports Program, archery is designed to teach young people between the ages of 9-21 the safe and responsible use of archery equipment.
The program develops life-long skills in the sport of archery through team and competitive shooting events.
Instruction is provided by Frankie Quesenberry and Mike Garland, certified instructors with the WVU State 4H Shooting Sports Program. In recent years they have added wild life instruction to the program.
Quesenberry says, “Youths benefit by learning proper shooting techniques, responsible use of equipment and important safety measures. Kids have fun and learn safe teamwork.” Youths gain many skills from developing leadership abilities, to archery safety in a personal and group setting and the importance of wildlife conservation.
