Macon County 4-H is so excited to have in person activities again. Macon County 4-H has not had in person club meetings since March 2020. The Corona Virus Pandemic caused all 4-H clubs to stop meeting until this past Month.

Thursday, October 22, Macon County 4-H finally got to host the 4-H Archery Club on the 4-H outdoor archery range. There was a great number of 4-H club members come and shoot. It was a great afternoon. We enjoyed seeing our archers and they all enjoyed being together and shooting. All safety precautions were taken to ensure everyone was safe. The 4-H’ers and leaders all wore masks and were socially distanced.

The 4-H Shooting Sports Program is a youth development education program, which uses a prevention education model that strongly emphasizes positive youth-adult interaction and peer leadership. It uses skills and disciplines of safe shooting and conservation to assist young people and their leaders in attaining knowledge and developing essential life skills. The program can enhance family communications and quality time together. It creates an environment for a caring relationship between a young person and a significant adult, whether this is a family member,other adult, or teen volunteer. These activities provide the opportunity for immediate gratification to the youth and satisfaction and self-worth to the adult/teen leader who acts as teacher and role model for younger 4-H youth members. The program relies on 4-H certified instructors to conduct classes in the various disciplines (archery, pistol, shotgun, muzzle loading,rifle, wildlife/hunting, and coordinator.)

If you are interested in joining the 4-H Shooting Sports Club, or becoming a certified instructor contact the Macon County 4-H Office at 828-349-2046 or email tammara_cole@ncsu.ed or carol_pitts@ncsu.edu
