Fire when ready

(Left to right): Kenedi Okones, Miranda Forgy, Mallorie Forgy, Dede Okones, Jack Nosalek and Wilken Kube learn the importance of safety when it come to shooting bows. They also learn different directives and the best way to use the equipment during the Hardin County Archers bi-monthly meetings.

Darren Kube has a love of shooting sports and got into archery later in life. His wife, Carrie, has a love for 4H. The two of them teamed up together to make Hardin County Archers a reality three years ago.

“I’ve always loved shooting sports and I got into archery in 2008 and my biggest regret is I wanted so long in life to start doing archery. I wanted to be able to let kids have the opportunity at a younger age and then decide for themselves if they wanted to get more serious about it,” said Darren.
