Youth Hunting Education Challenge

Hunting Arrows

Our Goal

NRA's Youth Hunter Education Challenge (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 (bow, rifle, shotgun and muzzleloader), educational (orienteering and animal identification) and responsibility (hunter’s safety) events, YHEC helps build upon skills learned in basic hunter education courses and encourages safer, lifelong hunting habits.


Learn the basics of Orienteering. Skills include using a compass, map reading and pace counting.

Firearms and Archery

Hands on education and live fire activities with shotguns, muzzleloaders, .22 rifles and bows.

Animal Identification

Skulls, pelts and tracks and everything else you need to track down and identify wildlife.

Hunters Safety

From basic first aide to real life simulated shoot and no shoot situations, learn everything you need to keep you safe while enjoying the hunting sports.
