Y.H.E.C stands for Youth Hunter Education Challenge. There are 8 events in which youth will compete in a 1 day competition. The events are: rifle, shotgun, muzzle loading, archery, wildlife identification, hunter responsibility, hunter safety and orienteering.
Y.H.E.C was started in 1985 by the NRA to further our youth’s knowledge on hunting and outdoor skills, and it is considered one of the most comprehensive programs of its type in North America. More than 1.2 million youth, from 33 states and Canadian provinces, have participated in the program since it began in 1985.
