Obion County Community News

Amazing find by an area hunter! A 16pt Buck was killed last week in Obion County. Our wildlife, the beauty of our country settings, and the residents that appreciate this luxury are just a few of the reason a person would want to make Obion County their home. Green Score by local taxidermist was 171 3/8 but TWRA will officially score him after 90 days.

Congratulations to these area high school students for being chosen to play in the West Tennessee All-Star Football Game! We are so proud of all of the hard work each of you have shown on the field. Good luck tonight!
