COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, in conjunction with The University of Tennessee Middle Tennessee Research Center in Columbia, will be hosting the 13th Annual Maury County/Steve Brown Memorial Youth Dove Hunt on Saturday, Sept. 8.
Boys and girls ages 9-15, who have successfully completed hunter education, are eligible to participate. The participants must be accompanied by one-non hunting adult. Due to space restrictions, the field is limited to the first 60 hunters who register. The Steve Brown Memorial portion of the event’s name was added three years ago in honor of TWRA wildlife technician Steve Brown who worked at Yanahli Wildlife Management Area in Maury County.
Events begin at 11 a.m. and will include registration, lunch, clay target range shooting, door prizes, safety orientation, and the dove hunt. The hunt concludes at sunset.
To register for the event, visit the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org. For any additional information, contact Maury County TWRA wildlife officers Ryne Goats at (615) 920-9060, or Rusty Thompson at (931) 881-8241.
The event is sponsored by the TWRA, Tennessee Wildlife Officers Association, Columbia Noon Rotary Club, Corvin’s Auto Repair, Community Heating and Air, and several other local businesses.
