All first year trap members must attend one safety class. For more information on class dates please contact Coach Mike Marriott at 275-1605.
Beginning March 15, 2012, trap practice will be held at 6 p.m. every Thursday at Cactus Flats Shooting Range weather permitting.
To participate in the Fremont County Fair Shotgun Shooting Competition members must have attended three scheduled practices. Participants are expected to provide ammunition for and to pay for their rounds at the range during practices and competitions. Participants may bring their own shotguns to use or they may use one of the 4-H club guns. Participants are also required to wear hearing and eye protection while they are on the range.
While on the range participants must obey 4-H and Cactus Flat's range safety rules. Coaches and the range owners have the authority to remove anyone from the range if they are breaking range safety rules. Members are also required to uphold safety rules and the 4-H code of conduct.

Scores and Shooting Journal
Scores are available by logging in to the left. However, you are also expected to keep track of your scores. To help you keep track of your scores and the conditions that may impact your scores we have created a shooting journal. The documents to create your own journal booklet are below.
Cover and first and last page - Print one of this document. Cut the page horizontally and fold the pages vertically. The page with the 4-H logo will is the cover page. The other page will be your first and last page. Make sure the blank side of your first and last page are facing out when folded.
Inside journal pages - Print multiple copies of this document on the front and back of your paper. Once printed cut the pages along the horizontal line and fold along the vertical line.
Once you have printed these documents as directed, cut and folded the pieces, place the inside pages inside the cover and use a stapler to put the book together. If you want to add your personal touch you can use a hole punch to put holes along the spine of your book and tie the book together with ribbon or yarn of your choice.
Now that you have finished making your journal keep it in your shooting vest or bag so you can record you scores and other information. Taking a little time record information such as weather, ammunition and gun used can help you identify factors that influence your score.
The shooting journal will also assist you in completing your record books. Record books must be completed and have a passing score in order to count towards completion. If your book is determined not to be complete it will be returned to you and you will have a specified amount of time to bring it up to standard. Don't wait until the last minute! Keep up with your record books and they won't seem so bad.
