A separate competition called the Cherokee Run was also held throughout the week. This event was held simply for fun and consisted of running through different stages like bow and arrow, horseshoes, sling shot, and starting your own fire. Drew Bargesser, a junior from North Carolina, took home first with the highest score and fastest time.
Competitions ran throughout the day, leaving the evenings open to additional activities! Youth, parents, and coaches were all invited to participate in events like a 3-gun shoot, a flu flu archery shoot, swap meet, and demonstrations by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
YHEC is a great opportunity for youth to demonstrate their skills, make friends from all over the country, bond with their families, and learn what it means to be a responsible and ethical hunter.
