The Shotgun Club of the Erath County 4-H shooting sports recently competed at the Dallas County 4-H Invitational where two members received trophies.

Colton Back placed third in trap, fourth in sporting clays and fifth in whiz-bang and Guthri Jenschke placed first in the trap competition and third in the skeet shooting in the novice division.

“Right now, we’re kind of small. It’s my kids and a couple of others,” said Daryl Back, the team’s coach. “We’re trying to grow the program. I think we have about six kids and I’d love to get 15 or more.”

Back said the team goes to competitions January-July every year and has an offseason in the fall. Ages nine-18 years are eligible to participate in the shooting sports.

The club will start up again in September, but those who want to sign up can do so year round.

For more information call Back at 817-219-5285.
