Hunter education challenge to test teens’ shooting skills

VERMONT — There are still openings at the NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge. This annual event will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 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 Aug. 21. To register, call Mary and Clint Gray at 802-467-8445 or email [email protected]. 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.”
