Hunter input invited: The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency invites hunters to submit advice and ideas about the 2013-14 hunting seasons.
Comments can be mailed to: Hunting Season Comments, TWRA Wildlife & Forestry Division, P.O. Box 40747, Nashville, Tn. 37204; or e-mailed to: email@example.com
E-mails should include “Hunting Season Comments” on the subject line.
The TWRA and the Wildlife Commission takes the comments into consideration when determining future hunting seasons, rules and regulations.
One example was the decision to move the fall turkey season from December to October; that came about in large part because of hunter suggestions.
The deadline for submitting suggestions is Feb. 25.
