Learn ethical behavior and responsibility when it comes to shooting sports and equipment.

What can you do?

In the shooting sports project, you can:

  • Demonstrate safety techniques applied to shooting activities, including range commands and range safety or eye and ear protection.
  • Share information on shooting skills, such as basic safety rules, basic parts and functions of each piece of equipment or care and maintenance.
  • Design and create shooting sports equipment, including a pellet stand, kneeling role, target stand or quiver.

These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project. 

You can also take your project learning further by getting involved in the shooting sports and wildlife (SS&W) program.
