Greene County Youth Dove Hunt Set For Sept. 20

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

The fourth annual TWRA Youth Dove Hunt is set for Saturday, Sept. 20, at the University of Tennessee Education and Research Center in Greeneville.  Once again, mentors accompanying the youth will be allowed to participate in the hunt.

Youth ages 10-16 are eligible to participate and must be accompanied by a mentor age 21 or older.  Appropriate hunting licenses and Migratory Bird Permit are required for ages 13 to 16, as well as mentors.  Mentors born after Jan. 1, 1969 and youth hunters ages 10 and up are required to possess proof of successful completion of a hunter education course.

Only 50 hunting stations are available and will be determined by a drawing, which will be held before the hunt.  If more than 50 hunters are present, a hunter that does not get drawn may fill a vacated station once a hunter fills his or her bag limit or wishes to quit hunting.

The event is free of charge with registration beginning at noon, followed by trap and archery shooting.  Ammunition for the trap shoot will be provided and lunch will be available for purchase.

The University of Tennessee Education and Research Center is located on 2255 East Allen’s Bridge Road, off Hwy. 70 in Greeneville.  Directions to the Center are available online at http://greeneville.tennessee.edu/.
