LITTLE ROCK – Half of the 2011 Junior Olympic Shotgun Team is from Arkansas.

Those five also are current or recent members of teams that compete in the Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program, created and managed by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. The announcement came in late January from USA Shooting, the governing body of Olympic shooting events.
