Part 1–5:30pm (we will start promptly at 5:30pm)
YHEC provides a fun and practical environment for kids to develop and improve their hunting, marksmanship and safety skills. Through its simulated hunting situations, live fire exercises and responsibility events, YHEC builds upon skills learned in basic hunter education courses and encourages safer, lifelong hunting habits.
A-1 Archery will be doing ONE of four shooting events–ARCHERY ONLY.
Archers will take shots at 30 different targets varying in distances from 10-30 yards in our indoor range. We will be using both 3D and NRA Life-size Game Targets with scoring areas directly over the vital areas of the animal. Participants shoot one arrow at each target. The key is to be able to judge the distance and know where to aim at the target for a kill shot.
-All arrows must have either glue on or screw in target or field points. Broadheads are PROHIBITED.
-Binoculars are allowed to scope the target for the kill area.
-RANGEFINDERS ARE PROHIBITED.
-Achievement Levels for Hunting Archery Challenge:
a. Hunting Archer Achiever minimum total of 80 pts.
b. Hunting Archer Sharpshooter minimum of 153 pts.
c. Hunting Archer Expert minimum of 216 pts.
d. Hunting Archer Master minimum of 262 pts.
Part 2 will be held when all scoring for Part 1 is complete.
Then we move on to the Wildlife Identification part of the day. This is ONE of the four responsibility events that we could offer. The participants will be tested in their ability to identify birds and mammals (at times even reptiles). They should know their animal tracks and pelts to do well in this part of the challenge as there will be 30 to identify. Participants will be allowed 90 seconds per station. Stations may not be re-visited. Wildlife ID books and cell phones are prohibited.
