NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission approved the statewide 2010-11 hunting seasons during its May meeting. The upcoming hunting seasons will have a few slight changes as approved by the commission.
Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency personnel previewed the recommendations at last month’s TWRC meeting and again during the committee meetings at the May meeting. Most of the state’s hunting seasons’ dates and standard bag limits will remain similar for 2010-11.
No changes were made concerning deer season dates or to standard antlered and antlerless bag limits. Six Unit B counties will have more antlerless muzzleloader opportunities as a result of a move from the 5-day to the 14-day antlerless hunt. The counties in which the changes apply to are Anderson, Claiborne, Grainger, Greene, Hancock, and Johnson.
