BB & Air Rifle Range
The Livingston Parish 4-H Shooting Sports Club is very excited to begin this year’s activities! All participants must be a member of a parish 4-H school club or a 4-H member-at-large. The last date to join Shooting Sports for this school year will be October 31st.
Shooting sports is the fastest growing project in 4-H. It is exciting and involves activities at many different levels; from the beginner to nationally competitive shooters. We will instruct your child in the discipline they most enjoy and let them try out others if they would like. Currently Livingston Parish 4-H offers the rifle (bb, air rifle, .22), pistol (air and .22), archery, shotgun, muzzleloading, and hunting disciplines.
Along with the shooting practices offered through our club, the state will offer regional and state competitions if any of the students are interested. You are not required to compete at any event. However if you do choose to compete you need to be aware that those who are successful at competitions practice at home every day to get better in their chosen discipline.
This year’s sign-up fee is $40. This fee includes a Livingston Parish 4-H Shooting Sports Program T-Shirt and 1 project book. This is a non-refundable fee.
Each club member that plans to compete is asked to purchase a competition shirt. (This is different from the t-shirt you will be getting with your sign-up fee). The shirt can be purchased at Sport-n-center in Denham Springs. You will simply need to go to Sport-n-Center and tell them you would like to order the 4-H shootings sports shirt. They will size you and you will pay them and pick up from them when the shirts come in. This should be done no later than January 15th to insure your student has their shirt in time for the Regional meet.
To attend advanced meetings such as competitions:
* You must have completed 8 hours of 4-H shooting sports training in each discipline you plan to compete in.
* You must have completed a Hunter’s Safety training and provided us with you Hunter’s Safety number or completion certificate (if over age 10).
* Your shooting sports leaders and parents must agree that you can safely handle a firearm.
Shooting Sports practice is located north of Watson, LA at Kemp Farms. There is a map and directions posted below.
