  • Tennessee’s 2011 Dove Season opened September 1st

        One of Tennessee’s most long-standing outdoor traditions will begin with the opening of mourning dove season. Dove season officially began across the state on Thursday, Sept. 1 at noon (local time).        Tennessee’s 2011 season will again be divided into three segments: Sept. 1 through Sept. 26; Oct. 8 through Oct. 23; and Dec. 19 through Jan. 15. Hunting times, other than opening day, are one-half hour before sunrise until sunset for all other days.

  • TWRA addresses use of bait for hunting

        The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has been receiving inquiries concerning hunting with the use of bait. The statute concerning the use of bait (TCA 70-4-113) has not been changed.
         However, in response to questions from hunters concerning hunting with the aid of bait, the TWRA has adopted an internal law enforcement procedure aimed at providing uniform enforcement of these regulations statewide for deer, turkey, and elk. Due to a greatly different response to bait, the procedure does not apply to bear and other wildlife.
