Tucson, AZ: The Houston Chapter of Safari Club International (SCI Houston) is proud to announce The 9th Annual Youth Hunter Education Program will take place the weekend of August 10-11 at the Good Shepherd Methodist Church, 20155 Cypresswood Drive, Cypress, TX. This is the signature event of SCI Houston, it promotes strong family values and teaches young hunters about hunting and the role sportsmen and women play in sustainable wildlife conservation.

To hunt in Texas, anyone born after September 2, 1971 must take an approved hunter education and safety course. In conjunction with Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) and dedicated sponsors, SCI Houston underwrites and provides this weekend course at no charge, even offering lunch on Saturday. SCI Houston encourages parents and guardians to attend with their kids.

In order to receive certification, students must attend both classes, Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (registration begins at 7:00 a.m.) and Sunday 12:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Students must be 9 years of age or over to gain TPWD certification, though those 6 years of age and up are welcome to attend as well. Registration deadline is Friday, August 2nd.

One lucky 18-year-old or younger attendee will win a Bronze Medal Whitetail Hunt on one of Bill Carter’s famed South Texas ranches.  There will be other prizes as well, including a hunting rifle package. Those who register by August 1st will receive two entries for all the prize drawings.
