Sign up Now for Youth Hunter Education Challenge
There are still openings at the NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge. This annual event will be held from 8am to 6pm on Sunday, August 25, at the Edward Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton. The event is free, and offers young hunters the chance to practice their skills in firearms, archery, wildlife identification and land navigation.
The Youth Hunter Education Challenge is open to all youth under 19 years of age who have completed hunter education. Mentors, parents and guardians are encouraged to attend. Pre-registration is required by August 21, 2013. To register, call Mary & Clint Gray at 802-467-8445 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the National Rifle Association, Vermont Bearhound Association, and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
“This event underscores the importance of youth hunters to the future of hunting in Vermont,” said Christopher Saunders, Vermont Fish & Wildlife hunter education coordinator. “But more importantly, it offers plenty of learning and fun for young hunters and their families.”
