Shooting Sports is one of the fastest growing 4-H projects in the district. The Smallbore Rifle Match is an annual competitive event with smallbore marksmen testing their skills against other 4-H members across the district. Youth compete in three different age groups using smallbore (.22 cal) rifles as part of a 4-person team. The Archery Match has been added to the spectrum of disciplines in recent years. Youth compete in a modified field archery event and a 3-D event. In 2012, the District offered its first Shotgun Match. Youth participate in Trap, Skeet, and the TPWD WhizBang shotgun events. In addition, the Postal League is an opportunity for 4-H members and families to engage in additional opportunities with smallbore rifle, archery, and shotgun. Information is available below for smallbore rifle, archery, shotgun, and postal league opportunities in District 12.
