Wyoming 4-H Email Shooting Match
Shotgun Guidelines

Information for Youth Participants

The contest will take place over five weeks - May 6 to June 3

Age divisions will be Junior, Intermediate, and Senior.
     Juniors will shoot 25 clays from 16 yards.
     Intermediates and seniors will shoot 50 clays from 16 yards.

We will follow the same guidelines as the state shotgun match but only use the scores from the singles round.

One score per week will be tallied. Participants will have all week to shoot and their score to be verified by a certified shooting sports leader.

A score can be submitted for each week (i.e. a maximum of five scores can be recorded).  The top three scores will count towards the participant's final total.

The top 10 shooters in each age division will receive a pin in recognition of their accomplishment.  The pins will be sent to the County Extension Office after the final scores have been tallied and posted to the website.
