The Shooting Sports: Teaching the Next Generation

Clay shooting may soon be extracurricular | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle Shooting clubs, marksmanship, trap and skeet were once not unusual school-time activities. The gun-fearing-weenies have eliminated a lot of programs, but some states are trying to bring them back.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department announced it's trying to start a pilot program similar to the Archery in Schools initiative, the new program entitled Clay Sports in Schools.

The pilot is designed to introduce 6th through 12th grade level youth to competitive shotgun clay target shooting through the Wildlife Management and Recreation curriculum in the Agricultural Science program in high schools.
