February Merit Badge Spotlight: Pioneering
& Rifle Shooting


Pioneering Merit Badge: Pioneering—the knowledge of ropes, knots, and splices along with the ability to build rustic structures by lashing together poles and spars—is among the oldest of Scouting's skills. Practicing rope use and completing projects with lashings also allow Scouts to connect with past generations, ancestors who used many of these skills as they sailed the open seas and lived in America's forests and prairies. The Pioneering merit badge was one of the original 57 merit badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911. It replaced the 1910 Pioneer "Badge of Merit". Pioneering merit badge is an option for the National Outdoor Badge for Camping.

Rifle Shooting Merit Badge: Unless a rifle is handled incorrectly or recklessly, it is not dangerous. A rifle, like any other precision instrument, is manufactured to perform a specific task and can do so at no risk to the user or others. By earning this badge, Scouts can develop their shooting skills while learning safe practices.
