Telecheck. Baiting either allow it or outlaw it completely. A buck is a buck.... if its a male, use a buck tag.

I have no complaints on the big game seasons, however would like to see the following for Predators:

Centerfire and shotguns up to "00" shot on WMA's for coyotes, fox & bobcat - even if only 1 month - LBL does it in February with no issues and hunting a 20 to 35 pound coyote with an anemic rimfire (.17HMR & .22WRM)is in my opnion unethical...not saying it cant be done, but shot placement is critical and you are more likely to wound the animal and never recover

Allow Fox to be taken while using electronic calls - legal for coyotes, bobcats but i have to pull up if i see a red or grey

Allow coyote, fox at night during months that do not have a big game season in effect.most eastern and midwest states allow it and its addicting.

I personally predator hunt year round when i can and know a lot of folks that do also...most of these changes actually makes sense in controling the predator population in tennessee especially coyotes...keeping them in check will increase populations and the survival rates of fawns, turkey poults, quail chicks etc. Predator hunting out west has always been a big $$$ drawn for the hunting industry for years..we in the east have for the most part just caught the bug in the past several years and the population here has increased 10 fold with limited pressure. There are a lot of predator hunters out there that would agree with these type of changes....i cant be the only one

Leave as is, especially unit L. Tennessee is my favorite state to hunt in, especially as my kids grow up.

And TWRA should also put a brand new T/C muzzleloader of our choice under every Tn. hunter.

And also maybe give every hunter in the state 1000 acres of their own private land.

And a new truck too!

Telecheck & online checkout is fine -- very convenient, but leave some provision in place for the "old school" hunters who have no idea (or the desire to learn) of how to utilize such modern-day devices. Those seasoned hunters are often the ones with the best stories to share around the campfire & we should appreciate their contribution to the sport of hunting.

Last year the bucks harvested in my county was over 90% yearlings. Would like to see some help with the age structure in my county. Its frustrating to have a alot of hunting ground and little to no chance at a good buck. Thank you


where did you get your info?


What info?

Check station data

Is this personal observation at one check station? Because the statistics on the TWRA Hunter Toolbox site do not support your statment.

Do away with type 94 PERMIT!!!! I don't need one myself nor my kids, as we all have lifetime licence. If the limit on does is 3 per day, licence should cover limits without the need for a PERMIT. I thought years ago the type 94 was a WMA permit to hunt on non-quota WMA hunts. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is what a type 04 should be for............
