The annual Youth Safari Experience is a day of shooting and fun for the entire family. The event includes a 22 Rimfire Varmint Shoot, 3-Gun Airsoft, Cowboy Action Rimfire, Cowboy Lever Action Rifle and Shotgun, Archery, Wingshooting and the NWTF brought the Jakes Take Aim inflatable air gun range. The kids had a great time on the range while learning gun safety and shooting fundamental skills.
This free event creates excitement in kids that will translate into a thriving dedicated community of new hunters that are well-equipped with outdoor skills, shooting skills, hunting ethics and conservation principals. This year, we gave door prizes and offered a bucket drawing. Lunch was provided. This year hosted over 100 kids and 300 total people.
