Do you know a student in S3DA between the ages of 12 and 17 who desires to go deer hunting but otherwise would not have the chance? Here is their opportunity to go on the hunt of a lifetime with some of the foremost experts in archery and deer hunting! QDMA and S3DA will host a fun-filled and educational four-day hunt, November 2-5, in western Kentucky for the most outstanding nominees.
To be consistent with the spirit and intent of the National Archery Youth Hunt, please do your best to nominate a youngster who is proficient with their bow, NEW to hunting, interested in hunting and who would otherwise not have much opportunity to participate afield.
All nominees must be received by July 31st, 2017
Young hunters selected for the 2017 S3DA & QDMA National Archery Youth Hunt, to be held November 2-5 2017 at a property in Kentucky, will be announced during the summer of 2017.
Important details to keep in mind as you prepare your nomination:
- Nominees must be a current S3DA member.
- Nominees must be between the ages of 12-17 by November 2017.
- S3DA will not be able to accommodate additional parents/adults for youngsters. The property we are using has
wonderful facilities, but only enough to accommodate the hunters and one parent/guardian for each.
- The attendees will need to miss two days of school to participate. Please clear this BEFORE you file a nomination.
- All nominations MUST BE RECEIVED at S3DA Headquarters by July 31, 2017.
Important consideration for your nomination:
To be consistent with the spirit and intent of the S3DA & QDMA National Archery Youth Hunt, please do your best to nominate a youngster who is NEW to hunting, interested in hunting, and who would otherwise not have much opportunity to participate in the outdoor sports.
Please keep in mind that the youth hunter will be hunting with a property guide. Although we try to involve the guardian in as much of the deer harvesting process as possible, in most cases, the parent/guardian will not accompany the youngster while hunting.
