Young Hunter Education Scholarship - Big Game Society of NS



The Big Game Society of Nova Scotia

Youth Hunter Education Scholarship


Purpose: To promote the opportunity for youth from 12 to 17 years of age, who may otherwise never have the chance to learn about and experience hunting, there-by gaining an understanding of our hunting heritage and hopefully becoming active in the outdoor sports, so that these same values may someday be passed on to following generations. 

The Participants will undergo the Nova Scotia Bow Hunter Education Course or the Nova Scotia Hunter Education Course and the Canadian Firearms Safety Courses. Hunting ethics, tactics and foremost, safety are covered during these sessions. Upon completion of these courses youths are eligible to receive a Minors Firearms License. 

All participants selected will have the fees, directly related to the courses, covered by the Big Game Society of Nova Scotia.
