DePauw University, near Greencastle, Indiana, recently approved a Trap & Skeet Club as a way for students to enjoy the shooting sports in a safe, ethical and collegial environment. The concept was created by U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Sentry and DePauw student Mitch Strobl.

“Club members are grateful for DePauw’s willingness to allow students who love to shoot and those who wish to learn in a structured environment to participate, learn and grow,” said Strobl.

Within a week after the university granted permission, more than 85 students had joined the club.  More than 30 attended the initial shooting event. During that day, smiles were rampant and clays were busting!

“Having never been around guns before, they scared me,” said new shooter Anisha Khanna. “After my first time shooting, however, I found guns are safe when used correctly in a safe environment, not to mention, how much fun they can be when aiming at clays! My first experience definitely left an impression and I’m looking forward to the next time I can go shooting!”

Strobl added that an account has been set up for the DePauw shooting program through the Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund for anyone who would like to make a contribution in the name of DePauw’s shooting program.
