Greenfield, TN


Dear Youth, Parents, and Guardians

You have the opportunity to join us for a mentored deer hunt! 

December 13-15, 2019 near Greenfield, TN


Apply HERE!


These Tennessee Wildlife Federation Hunting and Fishing Academy events link youth and their accompanying parent or guardian with trained, lifelong hunters and anglers who serve as mentors for the weekend hunts.

More than hunting alone, the weekend will involve primitive camping; outdoor skills such as campsite selection and set up; orienteering with a compass; and the principles of "leave no trace" outdoorsmanship.

Youth must be aged 9 to 16 years old, have successfully completed the Tennessee Hunter Education course, and have a valid Tennessee hunting license. Participants should bring their own rifle with the corresponding ammunition for that caliber.

Everyone is encouraged to apply, regardless of skill level. 

Hunt specific details will be sent to individuals selected for the hunt. Participants will be notified four weeks before the hunt if they have been selected or wait-listed for that particular event.

All events are $150 for the youth and $150 for the accompanying parent/guardian. All meals and beverages for the duration of the event are covered by this fee. 

If you are unable to attend either of these events, please check out our other upcoming hunts.
