The NRA's "YHEC" Program, as it is known, is a chance for young hunters to participate in a simulated hunting competition among kids in their own age group from throughout Pennsylvania.
YHEC provides a fun environment for kids 18 and under to improve their hunting, marksmanship and safety skills. Through its simulated hunting situations, live fire exercises, educational and responsibility events, YHEC helps build upon skills learned in basic hunter education courses and encourages safer, lifelong hunting habits.
There are prizes for the "TOP GUNS" but the real prize is taking the challenge. 3-D Archery, Muzzleloader, Light Rifle, Sporting Clays, and a Hunter Responsibility Exam are the challenges. For more information visit https://yhec.nra.org
The Wilkes-Barre Rifle and Pistol club and the United Sportsmen Camp 271, in conjunction with the National Rifle Association, will conduct the PA Eastern YHEC shoot on Saturday, May 19, 2018. There will be six events: Rifle, Muzzleloader, Shotgun, Archery, Hunter Safety and Animal Identification. This is a warmup for the Pennsylvania State YHEC shoot on June 14 in State College.
The sportsmen's club has its own team, which is moderated by Dave Halchak. We're always looking for new, young hunters. Interested hunters should contact Dave Halchak at 570-542-2290 or e-mail Pomphrey@frontier.com.
