While they’ve had to make some changes to how they’re holding the event this year, the Hit-N-Miss Foundation will still hold their free youth “Braggin’ Rights” event.
With “a desire to inspire the area’s youth and teach them to enjoy the outdoors and our hunting and angling traditions,” the Hit-N-Miss Foundation was formed in 2008. And after a decade of helping local youth build a love of the outdoors, the organization officially became a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Each year, they hold the Braggin’ Rights event during the youth deer hunting season. This year, the youth season dates are Oct. 10-12.
Youth hunters are invited to bring their deer harvested that weekend to the Randolph County Rod and Gun Club located in Schuline for a free weigh in. Even though harvested deer can be called in and no longer have to be checked in at official check in stations, the organization wants to share with local youth the excitement of weighing in a deer and being congratulated by other hunters.
