County Archery 4-H Club’s Outdoor Range
This is pretty neat addition to our great state! If love archery you have to check this out! It had been a few years since I last was at an archery range so I look forward to going to the outdoor range. I use to be a camp councilor and we would take the kids every week and I loved it. Except for the one time I bet a 12 year old kid $50 that he couldn’t split my arrow… some how he did haha very impressive shot for sure.
In 2012, Doug Whitney and Greg Lebsack went through Archery Instructor Certification so that an archery program could be started for the 4-H youth of Carbon County. The club mission statement remains the development of leadership skills in the youth of Carbon County utilizing the discipline and mental concentration developed in competitive and recreational archery. With just a handful of kids, the club began shooting with the Stillwater County 4-H Archery Club since they had no facilities or equipment of their own. In the three years that followed, they began to shoot in Joliet on a shoestring budget and started the vision for something more the possibility of building an outdoor shooting range that would allow the kids to train for state and national competitions. With this goal in mind, the membership in the club has more than doubled and continues to grow.
