There will be a 4-H Shooting Sports Interest Meeting held on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at 5:30pm. The meeting will be located at the Choctaw County Extension Service and is open to all youth ages 8-18 who have an interest in becoming a member of our shooting sports program. This year we will offer the following disciplines: archery, air rifle, shotgun, and the .22 rifle. Hope to see you there!

Our goal is to make sure that every youth in this county, under the guidance of trained instructors, will learn the safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment in a controlled environment.
