NEXT EVENT: Yankee Chapter Apprentice Hunter Camp – July 19th-21st

Test Entry Rules

Updated Test Entry Rules

Please read the Test Entry Rules for 2024 as the process has changed. 

Test entry forms/fees will be accepted starting on January 8, 2024 for the lottery drawing.

Yankee Chapter members will have preference in the lottery.  All non-members will be placed on the waiting list unless the lottery entries do not fill the Yankee Chapter tests.

Due to the increase in the costs of birds and various other testing efforts, the Yankee Chapter will need to increase the testing fees in 2024.

YC Chapter Test Entry Fees:

  • Natural Ability – $120
  • Utility Prep Test / Utility Test – $135
