Event to honor young outdoorsman, support 4-H shooting sports
PRATT – To honor the life of a young outdoorsman and past 4-H Shooting Sports member, members of the Morris County Sharp Shooters club invite hunters to join them for the annual Ethan Carroll Memorial Coyote Calling Contest Nov. 29. The event will be based at the Morris County 4-H Building, 612 US Highway 56, Council Grove and is open to hunters of all ages.
The cost to enter is $100 per team, which may be comprised of two hunters age 15 or older, with the option of including one youth age 14 or younger. The top five placing teams will receive cash prizes, and youth prizes will be available for participants 14 or younger. Entries must be postmarked by Nov. 16 in order to receive an event t-shirt, and a pre-contest meeting will be held at the 4-H building Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. for those interested.
Apart from the competition, attendees can also enter into adult and youth raffles, and a 50/50 drawing. All proceeds will go toward purchasing new equipment and supplies for the Morris County Sharp Shooters 4-H Shooting Sports Project.
