Pike County 4-H Shooting Sports


What is the Shooting Sports project?

The 4-H shooting sports project teaches safe operation of firearms and archery equipment. All volunuteer instructors must be certified. Six disciplines are offered at the state level: archery, hunting, muzzle loading, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. However, the disciplines offered in any county will depend on the availability of certified 4-H shooting sports instructors to teach the classes, ranges, and equipment.

The Pike County 4-H Shooting Sports program is led by Keith & Jamie Jenkins, along with many other certified Shooting Sports instructors.  For more information on the disciplines offered in Pike County, contact the Extension Office at (812) 354-6838.

For more information, visit the National 4-H Shooting Sports website and the Indiana 4-H Shooting Sports website.
