Do you have some ideas to improve the hunting in Tennessee? Are you happy with the new definition for antlered deer? Do you have observations on the new licensing of hunting and fishing guides?
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is ready for input from the public to make improvements in the 2017-2018 hunting seasons. Comments are welcome on many issues, including season dates, bag limits, hunting methods, and other regulations for big game and small game.
Your suggestions can be contributed via e-mail as well as surface mail, but no phone calls. All proposed changes need to have justifications with them. The final recommendations will be previewed by the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission at its April meeting and voted on at its May meeting.
Public comments will be considered by the TWRA Wildlife Division staff and may be presented as proposals for regulation changes. The deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 15. Email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include “Hunting Season Comments” on the subject line. Submissions by mail: Hunting Season Comments, TWRA Wildlife and Forestry Division, P.O. Box 40747, Nashville, TN 37204.
