Owls Win Hunters Challenge
On behalf of Tennessee Wildlife Federation, Hunters for the Hungry Program Director Matt Simcox presented the MUS chapter of the program the regional championship trophy.
Hunters for the Hungry has provided meat to the needy for the past 25 years. The meat goes through certified wild game processors across the state then is made available in local food banks and soup kitchens at no cost.
Owls collected 16 deer for 2,699 servings of meat over 1,000 hours – making them the top school in the region. Statewide, hunters collected a record of 148,011 pounds of meat and provided 592,044 servings.
Juniors Wilson Thakkar and Charlie Treadwell accepted the award. Treadwell thanked the crowd and reassured them the trophy will be back next year.
