Welcome to tennessee.

First, all elk tags are draw only and the only place you can hunt elk is the north Cumberland WMA north of knoxville. The time to put in is coming up next month.

There is some good deer and turkey hunting around Kingsport, but very little public land, and finding a lease can be difficult. You can find some cheap leases, but they usually have too many people and too few deer. Plan on spending $500 or so for a good one, and plan on going west. I haven't heard of many leases available up your way, but I haven't been looking very hard either. Good luck, and familiarize yourself with our public land. You can find good hunting on public land if you put in the leg work.

All of the elk hunting in TN is done by permit only and is restricted to the North Cumberland WMA. Last year there were six tags issued.
