 Details

On March 6, 2021 the Smoky Mountain Quail Forever Chapter and TWRA will sponsor a quail hunt at the McGhee-Carson Unit of the Tellico Lake WMA.  This hunt will be for youth hunters ages 10 to 16 that have passed a Hunter Safety class.  The hunt will start at 8:00AM and continue until afternoon.  Each hunter will need to be accompanied by a non-hunting adult.  Because of time and space, the hunt will be limited to the first 50 registered participants.

Each youth hunter along with the non-hunting adult, a dog handler, and a dog will enter a field where quail have been released.  When the dog points a quail, the hunter will have a chance to shoot that bird.  Each hunter will be given the opportunity to harvest three birds.  There will be four fields available, so we will be able to accommodate several youth hunters each hour.  Shotguns and ammunition used for the hunt will be provided by TWRA.

We will be following social distancing protocols for everyone’s safety.  Lunch will be provided by the Quail Forever Chapter.  The TWRA will also have skeet shooting, 22 target shooting, and other activities for the participants. 

There will be a drawing for a door prize after lunch at about 1:00 PM.
