2013 Northwoods Youth Deer Hunt Challenge banquet date set
Annual event celebrating its tenth year

The Northwoods Youth Deer Hunt Challenge will be hosting its tenth annual banquet Sunday, Dec. 29, 4 p.m., in the commons at Lakeland Union High School.

The banquet is open to any youth hunter from ages 10-17 who hunted in this year’s deer hunting seasons (archery, youth hunt, rifle and muzzleloader).

To be eligible for prizes, any youth hunter residing full-time in Vilas, Oneida, Iron counties may register to attend the banquet, whether they harvested a deer or not.

The NYDHC celebrates the hunt and if you hunted and didn’t bag a deer, that doesn’t mean you’re not eligible to win the best prizes. The banquet attendance averages 425 with 180 youth hunters. Every youth hunter will receive a prize for their participation in deer hunting.

 

Banquet highlights

Wade Wetland will be coordinating a bow shooting competition, with awards going to the best shooters.

This year’s prizes could be the best seen in years – there could be close to 50 firearms given out this year, courtesy of  the support by the NYDHC sponsors.   

Information booths will be set up to help young hunters gain knowledge and more experience in the field.

The Minocqua Lions Club will be serving dinner for all those who attend.

Hunters that did not harvest a deer are encouraged to use the non-harvest registration form below. Deadline is Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013.

Thank you for the chance for my daughter to be a part of such events as this. I think she will take more away from this to help encourage her to stick with hunting.
