Youth Hunter Education Challenge

We’re inviting young hunter education graduates to put their skills to the test!

This fun, free competition gives kids ages 11 to 17 the opportunity to improve their hunting, marksmanship and safety skills while competing for prizes. All shooting and safety equipment will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own shotgun, .22 rifle or archery equipment with their own ammunition and arrows. The competition will take place at the Roger G. Sykes Outdoor Heritage Education Complex at Platte River State Park.

A valid park entry permit is required. Participants must bring their hunter education certification.
