2017 Youth Hunter Education Challenge National Championship
July 23-28, 2017 NRA Whittington Center Raton, New Mexico
The National Youth Hunter Education Challenge is the pinnacle of the YHEC program. Top-ranked individuals come together, annually, from all across the country to compete for the YHEC National Championship. This event is the most advanced of all YHEC events, and requires all participants to have completed a hunter safety course, as well as a YHEC event at the state level (if your state has one). This unique opportunity allows youth to meet and learn with fellow participants and coaches, and demonstrate the skills they have acquired through hunter education to prove they are the future generation of responsible and ethical hunters.
For the 2017 YHEC National Championship, the Muzzleloader event will be a full shooting event for score purposes. No written exam will be factored into the Muzzleloader event score for 2017 YHEC National Championship.
