It’s not too late to ‘get on target’ this summer

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County is accepting registrations into its Shooting Sports Program.

The program will be conducted as a five-week course concluding with a field day.

Each discipline meets once a week at an Oswego County sportsman club. Archery will be held on Monday nights from 6 to 8 p.m. at Deerslayers Bowmen Association on Route 104 in southwest Oswego.

Shotgun will be held on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. at North Sportsmans Club in West Monroe.

Air rifle will meet Wednesdays at North Sportsmans Club from 6 to 8 p.m.

The last discipline, muzzleloading rifle, will be held Wednesday nights from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lock Stock and Barrel Club in Volney.

Youth do not need to have previous experience or own firearms to participate in this hands-on learning experience.

The Oswego County 4-H Program and instructors, certified New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Program, will provide all firearms and necessary equipment.

The instructors are volunteers who are chosen for their ability to teach and their skill at relating to youth.

The 4-H Shooting Sports’ courses will meet a minimum of five times beginning the first week of May and end with a field day in early June.

A program fee will be charged to cover the cost of materials and eye and ear protection.

The 4-H Shooting Sports Program aims to help youth develop self-confidence, personal discipline, responsibility, teamwork, self-esteem and sportsmanship.

The program also provides a positive experience for youth and promotes firearm safety. The Oswego County Shooting Sports program is not a hunter safety education program.
