ATV safety push: Promoting safety for riders of All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) is the goal of a campaign by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
The TWRA is partnering with the Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital, Future Farmers of America, UT Extension, 4-H and other organizations to produce Public Service Announcements that promote ATV safety.
Participants are asked to submit a 60-second video aimed at ATV safety. Cash prizes ranging from $100 to $250 will be presented to the winners.
For details visit the TWRA website, tnwildlife.org
As the popularity of ATVs has increased in recent years, also has the rate of accidents.
There are also strict rules and regulations regarding the use of ATVs on public lands, and about hunting from the vehicles. Those regulations can also be accessed at the website, or found in the current Tennessee Trapping & Hunting Guide.
Young shooters: The Corner Pub in Mt. Juliet held a promotion in which it donated 10% of its proceeds to the Mt. Juliet MCJROTC. The promotion was endorsed by the Friends of NRA which is has an active chapter in Wilson County and is involved in various fund-raisers to promote shooting and gun safety for youth groups.
