In an effort to provide Nashville-area youth and their families with the chance to learn more about the outdoors, the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation and National Rifle Association have partnered to produce a fun and educational program that will take place March 17.
Combining aspects of the Trailblazer Adventure Program from the Sportsmen’s Alliance and the NRA’s Youth Hunter Education Challenge, the day will introduce kids age 18 and under to the outdoors or help them improve their skills in hunting, marksmanship and safety. Through simulated hunting situations, live-fire exercises and educational and responsibility events, the programming will help youth build upon skills learned in basic hunter education courses.
