    The Kentucky State YHEC Competition was (quietly) held this past weekend in Bardstown. And by "quietly" I mean that hardly anyone knew about it going on or knows what it is. Nelson County came out the victor this year with the 1st place team. This was our first year competing in 9 years and our kids had a blast even thought it got up to almost 100 degrees.

    YHEC (Youth Hunter Education Challenge) is a co-sponsored program between 4H and the NRA. If you've taken the orange card test, it is like passing 1st grade and YHEC is the master's course in college. These youth study hard all year round to get the chance to compete with others who are dedicated to improving their knowledge, safety, and hunting skills.

    YHED teaches the youth through staged "real world hunting simulations" to challenge them and make them better outdoors-persons. The areas they compete in are: 3D Archery, Trap/Sporting Clays, Black Powder, Riflery, Hunting Safety, Wildlife ID, Orienteering, and Knowledge (a written test).

    If you have youth that are interested in becoming a better outdoors-person/hunter/etc I strongly suggest that they see if there is currently a program available in your county by contacting your local extension office. If you don't have one available get a hold of me (8S9-44S-SO92 * S=5) and I can put you in touch with someone to come out and do a demonstration for them.

    I live in Nelson and I never heard anything about it either. Looks like a great event. Good job to those involved!
