Jeffrey Phillips of Pangburn Arkansas has been involved in the NRA’s Youth Hunter Education Challenge for four years. As Jeffrey tells it “YHEC is a big part of my life”. Over this time frame, Jeffrey has place 2nd in Overall Scoring 3 times and has won a shotgun sponsored by TRImports on 3 different occasions. This year Jeffrey placed 2nd at the Arkansas State YHEC Championship held in Little Rock Arkansas in June and won a TRImport Silver Eagle Semi-Auto Shotgun. In July he placed 2nd in the NRA West Regional YHEC which was held in Bentonville Arkansas and won a TRImport Over/Under Shotgun.
Jeffrey who enjoys dove and duck hunt and shooting sporting clays with his TRImport Shotguns will turn 18 next year puts it this way, “I have slowly gotten better at shooting over the years. I have one more year left before I age out of YHEC and my goal is to win first overall. I continue to practice and be pushed by my grandpa to get better. I will be competing this last year with my new TRImport Silver Eagle Over and Under and I plan to bring home 1st Place. My thanks to YHEC, TRImports, and everyone associated with YHEC for providing a great program for youth hunter education.”
The Youth Hunter Education Challenge is one of the nations fastest growing youth hunting and education programs. Much of the YHEC success is contributed to great sponsors such as TRIMPORTS and its support of youth shooting programs.
