4-H SS/W project and the Hot Shot Club at Mtn Men Fort
On Saturday May 12th , 30 people from both the SS/W project and the Hot Shot Club attended an all day event in Palisade at the Mountain Men Fort. We started with a team survival challenge called "Bushcraft" lead by David Schroeder.
Our cloverbuds decorated and attempted filling bug boxes lead by Aimee Burley. Carrie Guida taught us about knots and buttermaking. Anna Guida made hemp bracelets. Abby Flemming did a demonstration on rabbits and shared her three rabbits with the group.
Our youth had instruction in archery, air rifle, .22, shotgun, black powder and tomahawk throwing. More than a few fishing lines were wet Saturday as well in the Willow River.
A special thanks to instructors - Jason Burley, Roger Schroeder, Wendy Brown and Mountain Man Harold LeBlanc. This day was a complete success thanks to youth, parents and 4-H leaders all working together. A huge thank you to all.
