Jeffco 4-H Shooting Sports

Record Books

4-H Record Books are also called e-Records. They can be downloaded from the State 4-H Website. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. Record books are turned in at Interview Judging before our County Fair.  In June, you will need to schedule an interview for each of your project areas and bring your record book with you to Interview Judging the week of the Jeffco 4-H Fair.

Enrollment Note

If you are enrolling in a Shooting Sports project, we will need to know the Hunter Education Certificate number on your child’s Hunter Ed card if they have taken a class in order for them to participate in Shooting Sports contests.  You will also need to upload a scanned PDF of the Hunter Education Card in 4honline.

Shooting sports safety and training meeting attendance requirement:

Each 4-H year every Jefferson County 4-H Shooting Sports member is required to attend one (1) official Jefferson County safety and training meeting (also known as ‘safety meeting’) for each discipline they shoot. While the safety meetings will be offered in May as well, please make all efforts to attend the February meetings! If you are unable to attend, please let Josey (jpukrop@jeffco.us) and the superintendent for your discipline know (listed at the bottom of this email).

Colorado 4-H requires members to have completed a Colorado Hunter’s Safety course and have a valid Hunter’s Safety card to be eligible to shoot in any contests. (The Hunter’s Safety requirement is a separate requirement and not counted as a county safety meeting and not counted toward the minimum number of practices. If your Hunter’s Safety course isn’t uploaded to the new 4HOnline, please send it to Josey to upload for you!)

The purpose of the safety meeting is to teach, refresh and reinforce safe shooting and range rules and to provide training on the discipline to help advance shooting ability for the members as well as parents\guardians. The safety and training meetings are for parents\guardians just as much as it is for 4-H members. At least one guardian must attend any 4-H event with the member, including the safety meeting. It is highly encouraged that all parents\guardians attend the safety meeting to help everyone understand the project and the 4-H program. We require attendance each year the member is enrolled in a discipline. As members and their families grow each year in 4-H, they are able to gain new details from the safety and training that they may not have been able to grasp in the year(s) prior. The yearly meetings also allow us to share new rules or other changes from the year before. In order to receive credit for attending, you must be present and attentive through the entire meeting and complete the quiz at the end. More information HERE.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
