NRA Youth Challenge coming to Crossville

-A A +A

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and Crossville City Police Department will be sponsoring the NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge on June 25 at Meadow Park Lake in Crossville.

This event starts at 8 a.m.  and is an advanced hunter education program designed to build and further develop skills taught in basic hunter education courses.  Parent or guardian permission is required. No prior experience is needed, but participants must be able to safely handle and shoulder firearms.

Participants must be between the ages of 10 to 17 years old and will face four shooting or “responsibility” tests. These include Hunting Archery Challenge, Hunting Shotgun Challenge, Hunting Orienteering Skills Challenge and Hunter Responsibility Exam. The top competitor will qualify for the National YHEC event to be held in New Mexico.    

The youth must pre-register by calling S.R.O. Capt. John Bilbrey, at 931-484-7231 and/or come by the Crossville Police Department, 141 Henry Avenue, to complete the application.  

Remember to pre-register as participants are limited to the first 60.
