Youth Hunter Education Challenge also known as YHEC is a program where young hunters can take their hunter education safety skills to the next level. It is called a challenge because it is exactly that! The program consists of 8 events, 4 shooting and 4 responsibility.
YHEC is a fun program that teaches young hunting and outdoor enthusiasts how to prepare for each adventure whether it be a hike or a hunting trip. Referred to as the graduate course for hunter education, it provides learning opportunities for young hunters to practice their skills and compete against other youth in a safe and fun environment. Each participant is required to have successfully completed a hunter education course. Participants range in age from 10 to 18 years.
YHEC is an international program that begins at a local level. Each year the state of Utah hosts a state competition where youth can participate in one or all of the 8 events offered. Participants from the state competition are then able to compete in the international competition that includes competitors from all over the United States and Canada.
