Ag Clays LogoAg Clays Shooting Program

This program introduces Clay Target Shooting, also known as “Ag Clays” to schools and students who participate in Wildlife, Fisheries, and Ecology Management curricula. The curriculum is taught by Ag Science teachers in conjunction with the Future Farmers of America (FFA) class instruction. The program is an extracurricular extension of the classroom time and enhances the Ecology Management portion of the curriculum. The program develops personal skills, teaches laws and ethics related to shooting, hunting, and firearm safety..

Ag Clays is introduced in the classroom, but Ag Science teachers and parent volunteers are the backbone to the program’s success. Shooting sports activities help participants practice procedures in safe firearm handling and shooting.

A variety of annual competitions are held throughout the state and extend invitations to Ag Clays participants. These competitions offer team and individual prizes, as well as cash and/or scholarships. They include, but are not limited to,
