Why can't a Tn resident purchase a trip lic? I took some buddies who've not hunted in years to Reelfoot for a late Jan. Duck hunt. I told them to go get a 3 or 7 day lic. They were told they had to purchase a annual lic. Cost them over a $100 for a Lic. that expires at end of Feb. We should switch to Arkansas system were the lic. is good for a year from date of purchase if we cant buy trip lic.
