Youth deer management hunt success for sponsors, youth

Youth deer management hunt success for sponsors, youth CARTHAGE, Tenn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency held the 4th Annual Defeated Creek Youth Deer Management Hunt at the Defeated Creek Recreation Area Dec. 6-7, 2014.

Park Ranger Kenny Claywell said this year’s hunt was expanded to 12 permitted hunters. There were seven youth that hunted with guns and five archers to allow for more youth hunting opportunities and to better manage the deer population within the area, he said.

Hunters that checked in on the morning of Dec. 6 had to deal with a cold, rainy morning, but they were welcomed with a warm lunch at Defeated Creek Marina provided on both Saturday and Sunday by a grant from the Tennessee Wildlife Officers Association. These lunches provided all participants a good hot meal and an excellent opportunity to share hunting stories and fellowship in a warm relaxing environment prior to the afternoon hunts. Hunters also received an orange hat and vest, as well as a grunt call donated by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation.

Additionally, this year’s hunters had an opportunity for door prizes for harvesting an antlerless deer. These included a Summit Climbing Tree stand donated by Summit Treestands LLC., as well as door prizes for each hunter donated by a variety of local businesses such as Tractor Supply Company, Home Supply, Smith County Hardware, Defeated Creek Marina, and the Tennessee Wildlife Officers Association.

“Despite a cold, damp start to the hunting weekend, the youth hunters were very successful in harvesting six antlerless deer and three bucks,” Claywell said.

If interested in next year’s hunt, please look for a news release and applications to be available near Oct. 1, 2015, or for more information, please contact the Cordell Hull Lake Resource Managers office at 71 Corps Lane, Carthage, TN 37030 or call: 615-735-1034.
