Posted: Monday, October 8, 2012 7:06 am The Tennessee Wildlife Resourses Agency recently recognized two local men as Hunter Education Region 1 Co-instructors of the Year. William Vickers was recognized for his 28 years and Steve Asher for 20 years of volunteering to teach hunter safety to area residents. Taking part in the plaque presentation prior to a recent class in Union City were (from left) TWRA wildlife official Roy Logan of Union City, Hunter Education coordinator Steve Henderson of Jackson, Vickers and Asher. “I cannot say enough good things about what these guys have done and what they mean to our young people,” Logan said, noting the men had taught more than 2,000 students. “They do it for the youth — all donated time — and they’ve been doing it for 28 and 20 years, respectively. There are a lot of grown men and women out there today that William and Ken are responsible for teaching.” Logan reminded hunters if they were born on or after Jan. 1, 1969, they must possess proof of successful completion of a hunter education class before hunting in Tennessee.
