BAIRD, Texas - The Callahan County Shooting Complex in Baird is hosting the 4-H Shooting Sports State Games for the second year in a row.
Children who are 4-H members and ages 8 to 19 are welcome to compete in the event that will run until Saturday.
"It's just a good family event," said Monty Ancinec, Callahan County shooting coach. "Little kids, big kids, it's just an all-around good and safe competition."
The state competition features more than 30 events, which include rifles, pistols, shotguns, muzzle loading, and hunting tips.
"If these kids want to shoot, they can shoot three or four events a day," Ancinec said. "When you go to state and you're gonna be there all week ... Well, that's what a lot of them do."
Nobody is eliminated from the competition, but high scores are rewarded with medals each day.
The competition will end on Saturday, Aug. 2, where overall winners will be decided for each age group.
If you would like to sign your child up for next season, you can visit their website here to become a 4-H member.
Sign-ups begin Sept. 1 – with training beginning in January.
