Hunting & Outdoor Skill Push

Scott Reese, 4-H Outdoor Education Specialist

Over the next year there is a plan to develop a State Competition for the Hunting & Outdoor Skills discipline. Next summer, Tennessee will be represented in this discipline at the National Contest.

We are encouraging current leaders who are certified in Rifle, Shotgun, or Archery to consider becoming certified in this discipline because, it is a great way to expand the opportunities and options in a county Shooting Sports program. However, certification in another discipline is NOT required to train in Hunting & Outdoor Skills.

As with everything, please contact your County 4-H Agent for more information and you are welcome to contact me if you need clarification or more information.
