Home of the Davie County 4H Shooting Sports Club
Tom Cowden Youth Shooting Sports was established in 2012 in memory of Thomas Samuel Cowden who died after two long years of fighting for his life. He had Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, and after treatments developed Radiation Necrosis in his Brain Stem. He left us much too early at age 15. We love him and miss him!
Tom loved shooting and the outdoors, so to honor his memory, Tom Cowden Youth Shooting Sports provides opportunities for young men and women to participate in Shooting Sports and Hunter Education. We host a 4H Shooting Sports Club and various events for 4H Day Programs, NC Hunter Education, Boy Scouts and any youth organizations that are interested in learning Firearms Safety, shooting fundamentals, hunting ethics etc...
Our instructor, Nelson Cowden is NRA Certified for Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol Shooting as well as an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer. He is also 4H Certified in all disciplines and Certified as a NC WRC Hunter Education Instructor. We have a 100yd Rimfire and Muzzleloader Rifle Range with a sheltered firing line and five Bench-rests. We also offer wing shooting instruction and American Trap as well as other clay sports, as well as a recently completed Archery Range. Currently a Dedicated Shotgun Field is in the works.
