Talladega County Hunter Education Event

On September 13, 2008, the Talladega County Hunter Education Association and ACEOA members assisted the Department of Conservation in holding the first shooting sports day for the youth of Talladega County. Seventy-five participants enjoyed events which included a 22 rifle station, a shotgun and trap station, a muzzle loader station, and an archery range. ACEOA members manned several of these stations and provided support and instruction for participants. The archery range, which was the most visited station, included nine 3-D targets (see photos) and Mathews Genesis bows. The archery targets, food, and much of the equipment used was purchased with funds donated by ACEOA. The Talladega County Hunter Education Association and the people of Talladega County would like to thank ACEOA and the Alabama Department of Conservation for helping make this day a success. The generous donation by ACEOA provided an opportunity to expose children to the outdoors and the shooting sport in a controlled, supervised, and positive manner. This investment in today's youth will pay dividends for conservation for generations to come.
