The deadline to apply for the Northwoods Youth Deer Hunting Challenge (NYDHC) scholarship has been extended to March 15.
The previous deadline was March 3.
Due to the generosity of several donors, more funds than expected are available and more scholarships will be offered.
All high school seniors who were past participants NYDHC are eligible to apply.
Applicants provide information such as their current school, number of years of participation in the NYDHC and write a brief description of their future plans and why they should be selected.
If you have any questions, or need an application, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Heather at 715-356-5236.
The NYDHC was developed in 2004 with the purpose of keeping youth hunters interested in carrying the tradition of hunting into adulthood.
Oneida, Vilas and Iron counties 12- to 17-year-olds are eligible to participate (18-year-olds are eligible if still in high school). Youth ages 10-11 who hunt under Wisconsin’s Hunting Mentorship Program may participate in the mentored hunt division.
Deer can be harvested from Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Price, Forest and Lincoln counties. Successful hunters register their deer and fill out a NYDHC entry form.
Youth who participated in the hunt but didn’t get a deer can still register and be eligible for prizes.
Anyone interested in becoming a committee member, a mentor or a sponsor for the NYDHC can call Gregg Walker or Heather Holmes at 715-356-5236.
