The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is now soliciting comments on the proposed 2017-18 hunting seasons’ regulations that were made at the April meeting of the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission. This is an opportunity for the public to share ideas and concerns about the proposed hunting regulations with TWRA staff. At last year’s season setting, the definition of what qualified as an antlered deer was changed to having any antler protruding above the hairline, rather than antlers three inches or more in length. The commission will continue the discussion at its May meeting when the 2017-18 seasons are set. The commission also plans to continue discussion on turkey bag limits at the next meeting. Various changes were recommended on wildlife management areas, public hunting areas, and national wildlife refuges. A public comment period on the proposals will be open until May 15, and a link to the proposed changes will be available for viewing soon on the TWRA website. Comments may be submitted by mail to: 2017-18 Hunting Season Comments, TWRA, Wildlife Division, P.O. Box 40747, Nashville, TN 37204 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Hunting Season Comments” on the subject line of emailed submissions.
