FAIRMONT – Beltrami County 4-H youth took part in the Minnesota 4-H State Shooting Sports/Wildlife Invitation Sept. 7-9 in Fairmont.

The 4-H Shooting Sports and Wildlife Invitational event involves about 700 young people in the following areas: archery, muzzle loader, shotgun, air rifle, .22 rifle, air pistol, silhouette fun shoot, and skill-a-thon. It is the culmination of the yearlong shooting and wildlife project.

More than 16 events are awarded to 10 places. Lead coach for archery is Ann Illies.  Lead coaches for air rifle/air pistol and .22 are Mike Porter and Rose Erickson. Trap youth are coached by John Ahrens.

Beltrami 4-H youth completed on a very windy week-end with exceptional results. First year and seasoned shooters had great success. Beltrami County 4-H youth participate in shooting sports all year long. This event is the showcase of their skills at a state wide event.

Nine Beltrami youth are eligible for application to the Minnesota 4-H National Shooting Sports Team. Senior shooters make application based on this qualifying event and then wait to learn if they have been selected to represent Minnesota 4-H at the National Shoot.
