High School Hunting Team Sets Sights On Championship

Students from Forbush High School have their sights set on another international championship -- in hunter safety.

David Moxley has coached the school's celebrated hunter safety team to ten state championships and five international titles. He'll be retiring later this summer after 30 years of teaching.

The Yadkin County archers and marksmen practice as many as 15 hours a week on target shooting, archery and navigation.

Many of their families are planning to make the trek to New Mexico for the July competition. They hold an annual barbecue to raise money.

Hannah Joyce is a freshman, and one of the few girls on the team. She hands out pins that say "beat by a girl." Her mother Rachel says that tactic drives up the level of competition.
