A guy found this in an old house. I think it might be the first for Tennessee. I tried to buy it but he said no.

I bet there were a BUNCH of poachers during that time!

Is it still poaching if you have to feed your family? It was necessity.

I have a 1936 hunting reg book. A man walked up to me one day and said I have something you might like, he walked to hid truck and handed it to me. I have no idea who he was. The real kicker is that was the year my Dad was born.

Amazing they even had rules going back that far. I knew former TWRA officer Finis Barnes many years back. He and Ronnie Shannon brought their TWRA trucks in our dealership for work. Either one would issue a ticket to their own family. Finis told me that when he was growing up if his mom said to go out and kill 2 squirrels he would go and kill 2 squirrels. Not 1, not 3, but 2, no matter how long it took.

They were both kind enough to demo beaver traps and answer any questions we had. I've been checked while fishing by both of them and even when they knew me, they wanted to see my license and catch. Finis is dead. Ronnie has retired, as I understand.

I thought this was interesting. The only protected hawk was the sparrow hawk.
