State Representative Host Fun Shoot

Elaine Bowers, Kansas State Representative District #107 and husband Charlie hosted the annual advanced hunter education fun shoot at their home near Concordia. Representative Bowers showed tremendous support for outdoor education for youth and was one of the over forty people that were in attendance. The shoot was conducted by Kansas certified hunter education instructors with the assistance of Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Kansas Fur Harvester Association, and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

Participants were given the opportunity to test their shooting skills with shotguns, .22 rifles, and muzzleloaders. Students had different stations available that simulated different hunting situations where they were coached proper shooting techniques. In addition to the shooting opportunities there were demonstrations on dog training and trapping.
