SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn — Tennessee Wildlife Resources Officers are dedicated to protecting wildlife in Tennessee and they are just as passionate about promoting the sport of hunting and fishing within our boarders.

Recently, wildlife officers from District 21 in Middle Tennessee spent part of their weekend guiding a group of young hunters from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Muddy Bayou Archery Team in Sumner and Trousdale Counties.

Several landowners in the area generously allowed their land to be used for this hunt. For these youngsters it was an opportunity to try and harvest their first turkey.

Many of the hunters saw turkey and a few were lucky enough to harvest an animal. Everyone came away with a good outdoor experience, new friendships, and a better understanding of turkey hunting.

The sponsors for this annual hunt were Core Civic and McLerran Properties.
