Our top priority is to have all students learn to handle firearms safely.
They must learn the four basic steps:
Working the Action
Checking the Action
Checking the Safety
The Kids Fishing event happens each year in May at Clear Lake. Partnered with WDFW over 800 youth come out to fish, receiving a fishing pole and t-shirt to take home with them. Watch for registration forms at the Big Horn Show and on the WDFW site.
