Pennsylvania Game News - March 2009 - 20

CODY WOLFE was the top overall Senior shooter for 2008. competition as well. At the same time, more emphasis was placed on the knowledge and ethics portion of the event, with participants competing in orienteering; a hunter safety trail, which presented shoot/don’t shoot situations; wildlife identification; and an exam on outdoor related subjects. Most sportsmen’s clubs will tell you that money is always an issue; however, there are many ways that YHEC participants are supported at the local, state and national levels. Of course, most support comes from parents, clubs and organizations. Clubs getting started with a YHEC program can apply to the Friends of the NRA for a grant. Many clubs hold shooting events to raise funds to support their teams, and many team members have fund-raising events on their own. Some support comes from communities that appreciate how the programs benefit their youth. Some teams are made up of students who participate in school shooting programs — yes, we still have them here. When interviewing Jeff Castle, one of the Troy Junior Shooters’ coaches, I asked what he liked best 20 about the YHEC program. “It is a family affair,” he replied. And for Jeff, it certainly has been. Jeff became involved with the program when Allen Castle, the coach at the time, asked Jeff ’s daughter, Louise, to shoot. At first, Jeff taught shotgun, and later, Allen asked him if he would take over the coaching position, and he did. Now, eight years later, Jeff is still coaching. Jeff’s daughter, Louise, and his son, Levi, each spent eight years with the program, and although they are now in college, Jeff plans to keep on coaching. Levi was the state champ in 2006, and in 2008, his team was third at the nationals. Jeff said that good teams just don’t happen. Planning and practice are required. Bob Wolfe, Steve Petris, Glenn Shelly and Curt Voorhees are also coaches for the Troy team. We have to add to this list the wives and parents who work in the background by teaching what is needed to know to compete in the hunter responsibility events. And, just as important, are those who are constantly preparing food and running the fund raising events. At this point, YHEC program seems to be self perpetuating. I interviewed Josh Petris, who first got involved as a young shooter and is now a coach. He told me that he had been asked by one of the coaches, Allen Castle, if he’d be interested in joining the shooting team. At the time, he was playing baseball, and when he asked his dad, Steve, if he could join the shooting program, his answer was that he could do only one thing, baseball or shoot. Steve believes that one should give 100 percent when participating in a sport. After baseball season was over that year, Josh joined the shooting team. He shot for three years For more information, call Chairman Charles Fox, RD#3 Troy, PA 16947; phone 570-297-4642 or log on to www.payhec.org. GAME NEWS
