March 25, 2021 Update: All 40 youth competitor spaces, for the 2021 Alaska NRA YHEC State Championship event scheduled for June 4-6, 2021, are full. We are taking a few Wait List registrations however and will contact those on the wait list if spaces open, which might be on short notice. Visit the registration page for this event to sign up on the wait list. (There is no guarantee that any waitlist registrations will end up with a spot.)
YHEC IS FOR YOUTH! The Alaska YHEC state championship is for youth (under age 19, or 19 and enrolled in high school for part of the year) who have completed Basic Hunter Education. Alaska Hunter Education certification is preferred but Basic Hunter Education certification from another state is acceptable. Additionally, Basic Hunter Education certification accepted by Alaska or another state is acceptable including the NRA's online Hunter Education Course. There are two age categories (or divisions), Junior (ages 14 and younger) and Senior (ages 15-19). Youth often compete as part of a team of five (plus one adult coach), but compete as individuals, as well.
Fun, friendly, competition with eight challenge events (four shooting and four hunter responsibility) related to hunter education! Lunch (on Saturday), BBQ lunch on Sunday, Awards, and participation certificate included.
