BELLE FOURCHE — This year was a record-breaking year at the ninth annual Bob Fox Memorial Shoot hosted in Belle Fourche by Butte County 4-H Shooting Sports! One hundred and seventeen youth from counties such as Fall River, Harding, Custer, Jackson, Ziebach, Pennington, Butte, and Lawrence, shot a total of 241 events over a course of two days, Feb. 28 and 29. 

This memorial shoot all started with the Fox family, when shooting sports wasn’t available for Chris and his family. 

Bob Fox, Chris’s dad, loved hunting, fishing and kids so he would put those things together and help kids with those activities. This memorial shoot is in honor of Bob Fox who “Loved kids, and loved hunting”, when he passed away his family wanted to carry on the legacy of Bob Fox. 

During the Bob Fox Memorial Shoot, the Fox family gives away a BB gun and a compound bow to a kid that has tried their hardest and really deserves to get their own bow or BB gun.  

Kyler Buchholz from Butte County won the bow and Hailey Richter from Harding County won the BB gun. 

A special thank you goes out to all of the volunteer’s that helped with the shoot. 

The event wouldn’t have been a successwithout the many who help.
