Tennessee’s 2009 free hunting day set for August 22nd


twraAll Tennesseans are reminded that Saturday, Aug. 22 is Free Hunting Day in Tennessee when state residents may hunt without a license. The annual event coincides with the opening day of squirrel season.

On Free Hunting Day, state resident hunters are exempt from hunting licenses and WMA permits requirements. «Read the rest of this article»
