>OPEN TO ALL

>SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (Dec. 23, 2008) - Youth interested in the outdoors

>a muzzleloader at the state's first annual Hunter Education Skills
>Challenge event Jan. 17 in Walton County.

>Open to all hunter education-certified youth, 18 years of age and
>younger, the challenge aims to test participants' abilities in six
>outdoor components: archery, air rifle, a safety trail challenge,
>orienteering, wildlife identification and a responsibility exam.
>
>This is the first statewide event for the Georgia Department of Natural

>The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sat., Jan. 17 at the
>division's dove field in Walton County, just adjacent to the Wildlife
>Resources Conservation Center, located at 2065 U.S. Highway 278, SE in
>Social Circle.

>"The program itself is similar to a 'graduate studies' course for
>hunter education students," explains Jennifer Pittman, Wildlife
>Resources Division's shooting sports coordinator. "Each component
>of
>the program simulates realistic conditions in an effort to reinforce
>and
>test a young hunter's skills."
>
>Because this is the first annual statewide event, interested youth from
>across the state are invited, and no challenger is required to have
>participated in a prior local event.
>
>Participants receive scores for each component with a maximum total
>score of 500. The competition includes two age divisions - Junior (ages
>14 and younger) and Senior (ages 15-18). Unlike this year's statewide
>challenge event, youth interested in participating in future statewide
>challenge events must first qualify as one of the top ten scoring
>participants at a local competition (per age division).

>The January state challenge kicks off a series of local challenges to
>be held throughout the state in 2009. Upcoming events will be
>highlighted on the division's Web site, [
