On June 20, 148 campers from the Northern Kentucky area joined together at the ninth annual NRA Youth Sportsfest, sponsored by the 5th District Federation League of Kentucky Sportsmen.


The day featured outdoor events such as fishing, archery, trap shooting, turkey calling and a trapping clinic.

“By sheer numbers, this year’s NRA Youth event was the largest we have had in nine years,” John Price, chairperson for the fifth district, said. “All of the kids and volunteers had a great day experiencing outdoor shooting and trapping activities in a safe environment. Seeing so many people having the chance to experience shooting, trapping and learning the safe use of firearms makes this event a success for everyone.”
