In a state where people love outdoor recreation as much as Wyoming, knowing gun safety at a young age is very important.
At Johnson Junior High, students are offered a course where they can receive their hunter certification.
Firearms are a part of Wyoming's culture and heritage, which makes knowing how to use them safely a valuable life skill.
Johnson Junior High students have been coming out to the Cheyenne Rifle and Pistol Club for over three decades to learn about firearms safety.
With the help of volunteers from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, students were able to complete the last part of their hunter education curriculum.
Jim Dawson is the hunter education coordinator for the Game and Fish and helped to teach the kids how to properly use a variety of firearms, from 22-pistols to 12 and 20 gage shotguns.
Many of the kids do not have access to firearms so part of the volunteers job was to get rid of some of the ideas they previously may have had about guns.
With the number of gun accidents we see today, the best way to prevent them is through education at a young age.
At the end of the day the volunteers from the game and fish find they got just as much out of it as the kids.
This is Amber Mathisen's first year taking over the class for Evelyn Wall who started bringing her students to the Cheyenne Rifle and Pistol Club over 30 years ago.
After today's experience she said she plans to continue bringing her students back.
