Hunting and Fishing Academy providing experiences
Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunting and Fishing Academy program hosting deer and duck hunting experiences for beginners in the New Year.

Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving our state’s wildlife and natural resources, invites parents and youth to learn how to hunt.

First-time or novice hunters can sign up at tnwf.org/interest.

The Federation’s Hunting and Fishing Academy program provides engaging, hands-on instruction in the art of being an outdoorsman through multi-day, immersive experiences.

For hunters, this includes practical sessions about reading the land and understanding the species to pick the best location, how to create a blind, what to consider to ensure ethical harvesting, safely field dressing the harvest, and more.

Participants are mentored by volunteer Hunt Masters, who are highly-trained, sportsmen and women and Academy staff.
