Young Tennessee hunters eligible for special hunt

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Youth ages 10 to 15 who are hunter-safety certified and who have never harvested a deer are eligible to win a spot in a special hunt.

According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the hunt will take place on a private farm in Humphreys County that has more than 2,000 acres of prime deer habitat. There also are tree-stands on the property including three that are handicapped-accessible.

A total of 30 young hunters will be selected to participate in the Oct. 25 hunt.

The winners will be picked by drawing and notified by Oct. 15. To participate, hunters must have a Tennessee hunting license and be accompanied by a non-hunting adult who is at least 21 years old.

Applications and more information are available on TWRA's website at www.tnwildlife.org.
