Apply for Spring Turkey Quota Hunts
Posted: Friday, December 14, 2012 12:00 pm
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency on Wednesday began accepting applications for the 2013 Spring Turkey Quota Hunts.
Applications are available and will be accepted at any TWRA license agent, TWRA regional office or online at the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org. Applications will not be accepted after 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 6. Mailed applications will not be accepted.
The areas available for the hunts are listed on the instruction sheets. Hunters have up to 12 choices, but will be drawn for only one. Applicants may not use the same hunt code more than once. There are a total of 19 hunts listed. No person may apply more than once.
A permit fee will not be charged to Annual Sportsman (Type 004), Lifetime Sportsman (Types 402-405) license holders or Senior Citizen Hunters (Type 166) with an Annual Senior Citizen Permit (Type 167). TWRA will pay the agent fee for these transactions. For all other license holders, the cost is $10 per permit, plus the agent fee. When applying at a license agent, hunters must remain at the location while the application is processed. Hunters will receive a receipt with a confirmation number when the application is complete.
Hunters can click on Buy a License On-Line. Once the Internet site has been accessed, hunters can follow the on-screen directions.
Hunter’s education registration:
Registration for a Tennessee Hunter Education course will be required to be made online beginning Jan. 1 on the TWRA’s website.
On the TWRA website, those wishing to register for a class will click the “register for a hunter education class” link. Once clicking the link, there will be directions to search for hunter education classes closest to your area.
