Woodsmen practices begin in the winter and lead up to county competitions. County teams compete provincially at 4-H Weekend in May. Woodsmen consists of a number of fun activities including Cross Cut Sawing, Pulp Sawing – Single and Double, Water Boil, Back Tank Race and Pulp Throw.
How to qualify: Each county chooses their team in their own way, but each club has an option to participate at a county woodsmen event first. Each County is eligible to send a team to both categories at 4-H Weekend: Woodsmen Skills Competition, and the Woodsmen Competition.
The Woodsmen Skills Competition is open to Junior Woodsmen teams from across Nova Scotia. The Competition takes place at 4-H Weekend.
