Emmet County Fall Youth Day invited youth in grades 4-12 to try out shooting sports at the Izaak Walton Grounds in Estherville Sunday. Stations included Muzzleloader, shotgun, high-power rifle, .22 rifle, archery, crossbow and trapping. The annual event is a collaboration among the Emmet County Conservation Board, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the Estherville Izaak Walton Club, and the Emmet County Sheriff’s Department. Emmet County Naturalist Ashley Reed said a large number of youth attended this year.
