Truly a favorite among Scouts. Cole Shooting Sports (Archery, Shotgun, Rifle , and Black Powder) Ranges were rebuilt in 2003 as part of the AWAC Capital Campaign. Rifles, shotguns, bows and arrows are all well maintained and replaced on a regular schedule. All of these badges require good hand and eye coordination and are not recommended for first year Scouts.
