The Trapper Trails Council encourages units to experience shooting sports. To ensure unit activities are planned and conducted safely they must follow the council shooting sports policy.
Cub Scout Shooting Sports
Archery and BB-gun shooting are restricted to day camps, Cub Scout/Webelos Scout resident camps, council-managed family camping programs, or council activities where there are properly trained supervisors and all standards for BSA shooting sports are enforced. ARCHERY, BB-GUN AND PELLET GUN SHOOTING ARE NOT TO BE DONE AT THE DEN AND PACK LEVEL.
Archery and BB gun shooting belt loops and pins may be earned only at the camps and activities listed above. These programs are designed to emphasize safety and marksmanship development under the direction of trained range officers using nationally approved instructional methods.
Cub Scouts may not shoot firearms of any kind other than BB guns and pellet guns by Webelos.
Archery and BB-gun shooting are supervised by BSA Rangemasters who are trained and certified by the council shooting sports committee.
All unit shooting activities must be done at council-approved ranges. Visit wheretoshoot.org to view a list of approved ranges. Boy Scouts of America requires all shooting activities to be supervised by the appropriate certified people as listed in the Council Shooting Sports Manual - Remember, not all ranges provide this.
