Clark Youth Shooting Camp

Quote:
In a small town it doesn't take long for news to travel. So it didn't take long for the fact to get out that I hoped one day to get a few of our teenager hunters out to learn a few things. Apparently that planted a seed, because my words eventually came full circle. Several dads asked that I run a youth shooting course. Of course they didn't really have to twist my arm too hard, and the Clark County Youth Shooting Camp was born.

Howdy Screech! I won't be running another class until next summer. Any help would again be very much appreciated. I can be reached at padreweis@hotmail.com if you would just drop me a line I will put you on my email list. I will start seeking sponsors again next spring.

Thanks!!!
Pete

Re: Clark Youth Shooting Camp

Thanks for the article Pete. I was wondering how it all went down.

Glad to hear it went well and was fun too. Did you have alot of mosquitos to deal with? We got hit hard with them in June this year.

Wondering how many of the kids shot 22 centerfires in this class?
What did most of them bring for guns/calibers?......anything predominant, or was it just random.

Re: Clark Youth Shooting Camp

Howdy Shane! No the bugs weren't bad. We had a really late spring which I think helped.

The .243 reigned supreme with 8 followed by the .223 at 5, We had 4 .270s a .308, 7mm Mag and even a winchester 1894 in 30-30!!

.243, .270 and 30-30 all Shot federal power shok ammo. .223s and 7mm where shooting remington core locks and my lone .308 was shooting handloads.

I tried to go with inexpensive ammo that the boys can get anywhere, hence be able to maintain some type of consistancy.

Pete
