Free Hunting Day In Tennessee

Here is a program to be emulated around the country.  Salute to the Tennessee Wildlife Management Folks!


FREE HUNTING DAY For Tennessee Residents SET FOR AUGUST 23

August 23, the opening day for the 2008 squirrel hunting season, has been established as a free hunting day in Tennessee, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).

This special day offers a chance to introduce a youth or an adult to squirrel hunting, the species which most of us started out hunting. It is also a good opportunity for those folks who have not tried hunting in a while to get back into the woods.

On free hunting day, all resident hunters are exempted from hunting licenses and WMA permits requirements. Not all WMA’s are open to hunting on August 23th. Be sure to check the information for particular WMA’s in the 2008 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide.

In addition to squirrels, those species that have a year-round season will be open as well. The year-round species are: armadillo, beaver, coyote, English sparrow, groundhog, nutria, pigeon, starling, and striped skunk.
