THE YOUTH HUNTER EDUCATION CHALLENGE

 
Mid South Quail Forever is proud to announce they are teaming up with the NRA and the Friends of the NRA to hold the 2015 West Tennessee National Rifle Association Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) on Saturday, June 13, 2015.  The event will be at beautiful Anderson Farms in Oakland, Tennessee, where Ronnie Downs, our venue host, has graciously allowed us to conduct the event. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Sportsman's Warehouse, Modern Woodmen of America, and Avery Outdoor Superstore will also be providing equipment and volunteers for the event.
 
The NRA refers to the YHEC as the graduate program of hunter education.  It is a competitive event with points awarded, but it is also a learning opportunity.  It is open to young people 9 to 18, and will consist of several competitions including archery, rifle marksmanship, hunter skills, and knowledge of hunter safety.  A hunter safety course is not required for this local event, and there is no charge to participate.
 
We need participants, volunteers, and prize donations.  If you know a young person who wants to compete, or if you want to volunteer, please register at www.midsouthquailforever.org.  If you have questions, call Mary Sue McFarland at (901) 734-2745 or send e-mail to msmcf10@aol.com.    All competitors MUST be pre-registered, and the event will be limited to 40.
