Farmers and hunters understand the importance of food. Because most farming is done in rural areas where wild game is superfluous, if you find a farmer, chances are good you have also found a hunter.

The two go together, as Forrest Gump said, "...like peas and carrots." Such was the case this past June 7th when shooting enthusiasts across western and middle Tennessee came together to support the cause of fighting hunger. 

With help from contributing sponsors like Farm Credit Mid-America, Tennessee Farmer's Co-op, Archer Malmo, Tyson Foods, Ford, and Tosh Farms, the resulting event was a first-class fundraiser that benefited the Mid-South Food Bank and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. 

Images captured from that event relate the fun had by everyone in attendance.
