Dutch Oven Cooking for the Tennessee Wildlife Commission

Nov 02, 2020

Scott Reese, 4-H Outdoor Education Specialist

At last week’s Tennessee Wildlife Commission event, 4-H’ers had the opportunity to show off some of their outdoor cooking skills. The October Wildlife Commission meeting was held at TWRA’s Buffalo Ridge Refuge property located in Humphreys county. Member of the Sumner County Wildlife Judging team (2019 National W.H.E.P. Contest winners) were joined by some 4-H All Stars from Humphreys County, to do some Dutch Oven cooking. Tennessee Wildlife Commissioners, TWRA Administration, TWRA Academy Cadets, and several guests were served cobbler and homemade ice-cream after their Thursday evening meal. This was a great way for our youth to interact with adults who are actively involved in the management of our great Tennessee natural resources. Some of these youth will be going on to represent Tennessee at the 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships next summer in the Hunting and Outdoor Skills division.
