Thanks to a grant from SCI Sables, nearly100 youth were treated to dove shoots at two different hunts by Tennessee Valley SCI. Working in partnership, with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the Chapter sponsored two shoots for youngsters 16 and younger this fall.
On opening day, the Tennessee Valley Chapter SCI worked with the Sequatchie Valley Youth Hunters Association to host a shoot for more than 60 young hunters.
The event included a BBQ, live music, tee shirts, hats, and a prize drawing that included a youth model shotgun. Two days later, the Chapter worked with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to sponsor a shoot in Hamilton County, Tennessee for approximately 25 young hunters. There, the kids were given hats and a drawing was held for a muzzleloader and a shotgun. More youth events are being planned, including a seminar on varmint hunting and hosting a rabbit hunt.
