Rick Kreuter, co-host of the Outdoor Channel’s popular show “Beyond the Hunt,’’ knows what it is like to get bucked off  bulls at rodeos.

Kreuter also knows what it is like to help buck a trend.

The number of people in the United States who hunt has been declining for decades. People like Kreuter and Steve West of La Grande, who also has a program on the Outdoor Channel, are striving to reverse this trend. This was clear Friday night as Kreuter and West worked with 40 members of the Sagebrush Pointers and Hawkeye  4-H clubs of Union County during an appearance at Alpine Archery in La Grande. Kreuter and West discussed the fine points of archery and operating muzzleloaders with the youth. They  want to help get more young people interested in hunting and the shooting sports.

“It is very important,’’ said Kreuter, who discussed the fine points of archery at Friday’s program.

West said that providing the opportunity for young people to get involved in hunting is critical for its survival.

“If we do not take care of the sport of hunting, it will not last forever,’’ said West, host of the Outdoor Channel program “Steve’s Outdoor Adventures.’’

West provided the 4-H youths at the meeting with tips for handling muzzleloaders. The instruction West provided is a small part of what he has done over the past five years to help get youths involved in the shooting sports. He has donated at least $5,000 each of the past five years in rifles and bows and other equipment to get youth involved and interested in hunting.
