Trap shoot: Ray Hutchensen shot a perfect 50 to win last week’s trap shoot at the Cedar City Gun Club.
Dan Smith won Class B after tying with Chris Cooper, K.J. Davis and Gregg Piercey, all shooting 43’s in regulation.
Billy Robb took Veteran’s honors with a 45 and K.J. Davis captured Sub-Junior with a 43.
For information about the weekly shoot or other area shooting events, contact Ben Schade at the Gun Club.

Fishing grants: In an attempt to foster an interest in fishing among youngsters, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is expanding a number of grants to schools that participate in the National Fishing in Schools Program.
Initial funding was for 10 grants of $1,000 each, but the program has proven so popular that an additional $4,000 has been allocated.
A parent, teacher or school administrator can obtain information about how to apply for a grant by visiting tnwildlife.org or calling 615-781-6542.
The program currently exists in more than a dozen states. In addition to teaching fishing skills and techniques students are taught about aquatic life, water quality and stream conservation.
“Tennesseans have seen an overwhelming success in the health and welfare of students in similar outdoor educational programs supported by the TWRA,” says Agency spokesman Don King.
Other TWRA-sponsored scholastic programs include archery classes and a clay target-shooting program, both of which are rapidly growing in popularity in schools across the state.

Trappers Meeting: The Tennessee Fur Harvesters Association will meet Oct. 12-14 at Fall Creek Falls State Park. There will be speakers, displays and booths featuring the latest in trapping gear and supplies.
