The competitors faced off in six different events: Hunter Responsibility Exam, Hunter Safety Trail, Wildlife Identification, Shotgun, Light Rifle, and Archery. The morning’s heavy rain kept the kids undercover for the Exam and Wildlife Identification, but the skies cleared up in time for them to head into the field and start shooting.
