Hunter Education

Hunter education is not only key to becoming a responsible and ethical hunter, it is required in 48 states.  This is the starting point in most sportsmen's journey to hunting and shooting sports.  Although you will spend a lifetime honing in your hunting and safety skill-set, most likely it will start in a Hunter Education program.

Our Focus

Uwharrie Youth Sportsmen is focused on cultivating purposeful and safe firearm handling in our youth.  That is our focus!  We see the rhetoric and the focus of negativity in our culture on the subject of firearms and the handling of, that we cannot stand idly by and do nothing.  So we have decided to focus our time and attention on the hunters and sportsmen of tomorrow.  We cannot meet this need without support from our local community and from the corporate community.
