Hunt Sponsored By The Tennessee Valley Safari Club And TWRA For 25 Combat Wounded Veterans

Friday, October 18, 2013
The Tennessee Valley Safari Club International, along with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, will be hosting 20 combat wounded veterans from Ft. Campbell and five from Chattanooga, on Monday, at 11:30 a.m. at Enterprise South Welcome Center, for a hosted deer hunt. There is a two-fold purpose for the hunt. One is to thank the veterans for their service for the country, and the second is to assist in controlling the deer population at the area.

At the lunch after the soldiers have hunted that morning, Scott DesJarlais, Chuck Fleishman, Ron Travis, Todd Gardenhire and Ed Carter will be addressing the gathering. The chapter of SCI is feeding the hunters for two days, providing housing, processing the meat, and providing taxidermy.
