Any Scout desiring to shoot MUST ATTEND THE MAY 18 SATURDAY MORNING MASS SAFETY BRIEF IN ITS ENTIRETY REGARDLESS OF EXPERIENCE LEVEL OR ANY CREDENTIALS. NO EXCEPTIONS. There will be supplemental briefs unique to each of shotgun, archery and rifle but these will leverage the morning brief.
This is shooting orientation, not merit badge.
It is expected that each Scout will have the opportunity to fire at least 5 shotgun shells (20 gauge, 12 gauge optional – smaller gauge means bigger cartridge) – one shot at a time at a Skeet ‘Low 7’ clay pigeon. In addition to 15 rounds from a .22 rimfire rifle (outdoor range) and a number of arrows (indoor range). Those wishing to do more may have the option if time permits.
There is catch and release fishing permitted in the pond – reported to have small mouth bass, catfish, crappies…
