National Western Heritage Conference

The 4-H Western Heritage Project combines a comprehensive study of the Old West with the fastest growing shooting sports discipline in the world - western action shooting. The purpose of this project is to provide an avenue for 4-H members and adult leaders to experience the lifestyles and cultures of the Old West from the period of around 1860-1900 through a living history approach to learning while instilling the concepts of gun safety and personal responsibility. Members dress in Old West clothing, shoot replica firearms of the frontier period, and expand their knowledge of U.S. History.

The 2021 Invitational Shoot scheduled to be held in Ellsworth, Kansas August 2-5 was cancelled due to COVID.  Visit http://www.4-hwesternheritageproject.org/ for more information.
