Youth Deer Rally is this Weekend

Tennessee young sportsman deer hunts for the 2017-18 season will be held the weekend of Oct. 28-29.
Youth ages 6-16 years of age may participate. Participating youth can use a gun, muzzleloader, and archery equipment.
Young sportsmen must be accompanied by a non-hunting adult, 21 or older who must remain in position to take immediate control of the hunting device. The adult must also comply with the fluorescent orange regulations as specified for legal hunters. Multiple youth may be accompanied by a single qualifying adult.
The annual Coffee County Young Sportsman Deer Rally will be held on Saturday at the Coffee County Fair Grounds from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Sponsors and committee members would like to invite all eligible hunters (ages 6-16) who participate in the Statewide Young Sportsman Deer Hunt to attend this year’s 13th annual event. Admission is FREE, including lunch beginning at 10 a.m. Successful hunters can check in their harvest at the event beginning at 7:00 a.m. and will be entered into a contest. Vendors will be set up to exhibit the latest in hunting products. There will be lots of prizes given away. This is a nonprofit event with all proceeds used to conduct the event.
In 2016, youth hunters harvested a total of 5,854 deer during the first hunt. All 95 Tennessee counties reported harvests in 2016.
