The " YHEC " Program, as it is known, is a chance for young hunters to participate in a simulated hunting competition amongst kids in their own age group from throughout Pennsylvania. There are prizes for the " TOP GUNS " but the real prize is taking the challenge. 3-D Archery, Muzzleloader, Light Rifle, Sporting Clays, and a Hunter Responsibility Exam are the challenges. Learn more through the links below!
By reviewing all of the "YHEC History" links you'll see photos of the people, the places, and the events that are all a part of the Pennsylvania's YHEC Program. By studying the "PA YHEC Rules" you'll get the rest of the picture.
Refer to the "PA YHEC Rules" page for the 2016 registration form
