  • Yankton County 4-H member takes top honors at State 4-H Shoot

    MITCHELL—Last weekend, one Yankton County 4-H member received first place because of his shotgun shooting skills.

    Nathan List was awarded first place in the senior division of sporting clays at the State 4-H Shoot in Mitchell. He competed against 249 other 4-H members from across South Dakota in this event, which is similar to hunting live birds.

    “Rather than having clay birds thrown from standardized distances and angles as with skeet or trap, sporting clays courses are designed to simulate the hunting of ducks, pheasants, other upland birds, and even rabbits,” according to the National Sporting Clays Association website.

    Trap and skeet divisions also competed at the State 4-H Shoots.

    “We were proud to watch the Yankton County 4-H Shooting Sports team in action,” 4-H club leader Randy Hummel said. “The team all shot very well and had a great time at the event.”

    Participation in the State 4-H Shoot and other competitions is only possible because of donations and sponsorships the club receives, Hummel added.

    The South Dakota National Wild Turkey Federation awarded the Yankton County 4-H Shooting Sports Club $1,000 from the Hunting Heritage Super Fund.

    “We owe them a thank you,” Hummel said. “These funds are used to help educate and encourage shooting safety, accuracy, and interest in different shooting disciplines, as well as hunting.”

    In the 4-H Shooting Sports Project, safety and decision-making skills are emphasized while 4-H’ers learn proper shooting technique with various kinds of guns and with archery.
