Emanuel County 4-H offers the indoor archery program during the fall and winter. The State Indoor Event will be held in Perry at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and will consist of a 330 round with 30 arrows shot in 10 ends of 3 arrows at 18 meters. Youth in 4th-12th grade may choose to shoot compound or recurve bows, and younger youth in 4th-6th grade can shoot bows with universal draw-length and no sights in a novice division. For specific questions about equipment requirements, you may contact the Extension/4-H Office.
To be eligible for participation, each youth must complete a Hunter’s Safety Course with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
