Jaycee chapters across Montana used to be the local sponsors of the Daisy program. When I was in the Baker Jaycees in the 90's we hosted the State Championship. The kids had to pass a written test on gun safety and ettiquette as well as be good shots.
Some of the coaches were extremely competitive. For example, the hand selected BB's for their kids to shoot and even though we got passes to the pool at the Baker Rec Complex for all the teams, some couldn't go swimming because the coach was worried that the chlorine would affect their eye sight.
Glendive had a very competitive team back then, as did Laurel, Belgrade and Havre. I seem to remember at least one of the Belgrade girls from that year going on to winning a college rifle team scholarship as well as a place on the Olympic Development team. I doubt any of the kids went on a spree shooting songbirds or burros.
