From Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency
-- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) and Young Sportsman Foundation, along with the support of local state chapters of the National Wild Turkey Federation and Quail Unlimited, will host a youth-only turkey hunt on Saturday, March 22, at the Cheatham Wildlife Management Area.
The hunt, for youth between the ages of 6-16, will be conducted on the more than 20,000 acres of prime Eastern wild turkey habitat at Cheatham WMA. The hunt provides a golden opportunity for the young turkey hunter to hunt the WMA that is only open to juveniles.
Participants must be hunter education certified and must have the appropriate licenses. In addition, volunteers ages 18 and older that have turkey hunting skills are needed.
There will be a cookout and campout for volunteers and participants on Friday, March 21. Lunch will be provided on Saturday. Door prizes will also be given away to any young turkey hunter who attends.
